As we were looking for somewhere for a gin or two, this bar was perfect. A massive range of gins, from your normal collection to the more unusual. Very helpful staff and a lovely atmosphere all night. It would have been a 5 star bar review but the food let it down. Trying 2 of the sharing platters between us,... More

Visited The Molly House on a few occasions and think the tapas food is beautiful. Very quirky little place and cosy! Nice staff and very clean. :) definitely a place to try if you enjoy tapas! 👍🏼

I just couldn't believe it !!! In this day and age and in Manchester of all places. We got refused entrance to The Molly House pub, WHY???? Because the door person said they don't allow Fancy Dress in there!!! We were (4 of us) dressed up fabulously ( in glamorous evening attire, smart jacket and evening shirts for the boys,... More

Been here a few times now and have enjoyed every time. It can get really packed at the weekends but worth visiting outside of as well as within peak times. Great range of drinks including real ales and there is tapas available downstairs. Accessibility is not the best for wheelchair users. However it is thoroughly recommended for a good atmosphere.

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.

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!?

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.
