See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

As of 2021, run as a "more-than-profit" social enterprise, with all profits reinvested in the building and used for community initiatives, the 'Whippy' is a welcome addition to the Withington area. Downstairs is a small wood-panelled snug and a much larger room, formerly occupied by a snooker table, which is used as a performance space, drinking area and is where you will find the on-site pizzeria. A further room is upstairs. A variety of events, workshops and exhibitions (such as cinema, art classes, markets, comedy, quizzes, and more...) are held here with the aim of becoming a focal point for the whole local community. Food available to take away or eat in. Apart from the cask beer(s), there are four guest kegs and a variety of cans from local craft breweries. There was a small experimental brewing kit upstairs which was used by Burton Road Brewery to produce experimental beers on an adhoc basis but these very rarely sold. This plant has now been removed., Burton Road's mainstream beers are 'cuckoo brewed' at Mobberley Brewhouse.
