A Kro is a Danish village pub. Obviously Manchester isn’t a Danish village but we hope our bar will have the same qualities and comforts of a traditional Kro; good food, good beer and a warm welcome.
The Ruby family, who run KRO, come from Jutland on the west coast of Denmark. Head of the family, Borge, trained to be a chef and during his national service was the chef for the King of Denmark, on the Royal Yacht. He then came over to work at the London Hilton as bar manager, which was followed by a time managing the Danish Food Centre, formally on Cross Street, Manchester.
The Danish Food Centre was the first place that served real coffee in Manchester. They had the largest cold buffet table outside of Scandinavia, and they boasted a cafeteria, a bar, a retail shop and a first class restaurant as well as a take away service.
Mark Ruby, Borge’s son, also trained to be a chef and worked in the Royal Hotel, Copenhagen and on the QE2 before establishing KRO in 1999.

Company description
The award-winning Kro Bar is set within a truly beautiful Grade II listed building, which was converted with the aim of providing a smart yet comfortable environment where people can enjoy the great food and variety of drinks and beverages that Kro is renowned for. Kro particularly prides itself on the menu's Danish classics, such as Pork Schnitzel and Frikadellar. Kro Bar has a large garden area at the rear of the building, with decking and tasteful furniture making it perfect for formal events as well as barbeques and themed parties. The upstairs rooms can also be adapted to cater for buffets and birthdays, as well as formal presentations. Whatever the time of day or special occasion, Kro Bar can always offer an enjoyable dining experience.
