I only stayed at the Oxnoble for 1 night to see a concert a The Bridgewater Hall. It was in a good location for where I wanted to go. I found the staff very helpful, courteous and attentive. The room was ok too. It was clean, bed comfortable and I didn't hear any noise at all. To be honest I'd... More

We stayed in Room 2. I can't comment on the standard of any of the other rooms but I don't feel this room is fit for purpose. Being above a pub, I obviously expected noise from the street and beer garden, but the room is directly above the pub toilets so you constantly hear the hand-dryers being used below. The... More

Any review of Manchester accommodation has to have price high on the agenda as the place is getting to be on a par with London in that regard. When Premier Inns and Travelodges are charging well in excess of a 100 quid for a Friday or Saturday, places like the Ox Noble, at half the price, start to look very... More

We lived in castlefield for over 2 years and never made it to the ox!!! What a mistake!! The pub is definitely on our top 5 in the city centre. The food is awesome, we got a 2 course meal for £15 and the quality was cracking. Will definitely be back!

We were going on the Corrie tour at 1.50 and it was only 12.30 so we looked around for a pub. Well, there one was, just down the street. It looked quite smart so in we went. Two smiling young ladies behind the bar welcomed us into the pub. I was impressed! Sarah took my order for drinks and said... More

Booked because of proximity to tour, we weren't disappointed. Two courses for £12.95, good home cooked fish and chips, followed by sticky toffee pudding. My husband had an ox burger and bread and butter pudding. Great selection of beers. And easy walking distance to the cobbles...

It is a great pub with a great atmosphere and the food is very good, BUT it was very noisy in our room as we were at the front right above the bar. The road was closed on the night we were there which I'm sure must have cut the noise down a lot but the noise from the pub... More
