A very good and well established festival.  It may have changed slightly, but it stands out as one of Greater Manchester’s finest.  Keep up the good work and I hope it’s back next year.

One of my favourite beer festivals.  Great selection of ales.  Well done, keep it up.

Marvellous as always.  Best beer festival of the year.  Thank you.

I came on my own.  I found the staff and fellow drinkers friendly and welcoming.  I hope to come again in the future.

Really enjoyable well organised and a superb choice of beers and ciders.  See you next year.
