Sounds odd but check out the toilets!

A great place with a fine choice of real ales and lagers. Steeped in history spend some time with a pint or two and good friends and find out what a 'Molly' is!?

They did tell us they would be closing shortly but they said they would take our drink order and gave us a cocktail list. we orderd a vodka and... More

This is a place I keep coming back to every time I visit Manchester. In the heart of the gay village (but very mixed) the Molly House offers a great space, good food, very friendly service, great ales and an interestind crowd. Definately my Nr. 1 choice in town.

One of my favourite pubs. Good food downstairs with great tapas. A great selection of beers in the lounge area upstairs. A nice mixed crowd, straight gay lesbian. Can't think of a group who i'd not take there.

Great situ and the style is cool, also had a very nice warm welcome at the bar from the ladies downstairs, unfortunately it turned sour beyond that going upstairs; we got a nasty snarl from the guy behind the counter (which seemed clearly well rehearsed) although to be honest we could easily overlook this. But, the food was awful, just... More

Just behind the main social area off canal street, this bar serves great food, fine drinks and all in a pleasant environment.

Don't often go to this side of town but friends took us here as they like it & its a "quieter" bar. Well, the second floor certainly wasn't but we did get served quickly. We moved back to the first floor and were lucky to get seats but it was still noisy and as time progressed getting noisier. I guess... More

I always pop into the Molly House when I'm in Manchester, however have only had drinks in there, which is always great, since there is a fabulous selection of real ale, which is severely lacking in the other pubs / bars in the Village. Since I was in town last week, my friend and I decided to try the tapas... More

The molly house is a little gem located just off the Gay Village in Manchester. It offers a variety of great craft beers, food and normal draft beers at very reasonable prices. The crowd is very varied and full of people from all walks of life (I must sadly say that this is a rarity in the gay village) and... More
