October saw the end of an era at Chorlton’s The Bar when manager Chris Henry departed after many years at The Bar (and its sister bar The Knott).

Chris was such a tireless worker that he would often be seen behind the bar seven days a week, regularly from early opening to closing time.

Chris has a great passion for beer regularly greeting beer loving regulars with a tasting glass of the latest special beer he was proud to have got on the bar (whether it be in cask or keg format. 

While he has left one Manchester beer institution behind, he is already behind the bar at another in his new role as manager of The Marble Arch.
