We had the steak and ale pie, nothing fancy but very tasty with nice tender chunks of lean meat, big fat chips and peas. The menue was was not extensive but had... read more

Disappointing selection of beer. For the past 20 years or so this place has never fulfilled it's potential. Should be one of the city centre's great boozers. It isn't.

Great atmosphere, good service and screens in every room. Nice selection of beers and menu very resonable, though service had finished when we arrived so can't comment really.

I was arranging lunchtime drinks for a leaving do and THT was recommended by a friend, especially for the house wine offer. Was served by one of the surliest barmaids ever and when i queried the price was told the offer wasnt on because they had run out of stock. While serving food to other customers the two barmaids continued... More

Chose burgers. Vegetarian option was tasty and my wife's beefburger was homemade and hearty. Fresh salad, slaw and hand cut chips. Great value. Friendly service. Great beer.

This is a great pub with all the character of a genuine city centre pub of yesteryear. Well run by Greek George and complimented with a few savoury but now elderley and harmless Manchester faces. Go on a Friday afternoon and Jimmy Jones will sing the Boxer for a pint. Great local beer and great value food by Brian. Where... More
