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

Popped in here after a couple of hours retail therapy as we just wanted a bite to eat and didnt want the usual chain stuff. Had a couple of pints, steak baguette and the cajun chicken breast. Enjoyed everything, portions were large and tasty and excellent value for money. Quite quiet but it was only 1pm on a Sunday afternoon.... More

Stopped in here late one afternoon, unfortunately too late for food: the kitchen closes at 16:00 we think. We had a couple of pints at the bar, it was nice and quiet so had a good conversation with Liam, our bartender, and another of our pub-goers. When we go back to Manchester we'll go out of our way to go... More

We went to this pub yesterday (16/08/14) and i ordered the Cajun chicken breast on ciabatta bread. It came and looked quite nice! Very spicy hence why i didnt notice as the spice took over! Half way through the chicken burger,i realised that all the way through the middle of the chicken was actually raw!! The meal was taken back... More

Called in here saturday lunch time, just looking for a quick pub lunch, and just usual pub grub not the bistro kind. Girls behind bar very friendly, personable and helpful. Not a bad menu plenty of old favourites on there. one of the girls recommended the special, 8 oz sirloin steak chips and salad £7.95 so we settled for that.... More

Very pleasant, helpful staff serving a good selection of beers and good food. Wine choice is limited. Good, relaxed, atmosphere with a good mix of locals and visitors. Typical city centre pub - worth a visit.

Have been to the Town Hall Tavern on many occasions and thought it was about time I reviewed it. It is to my mind a pub that sums Manchester up, friendly and down to earth and I love the atmosphere. I have not eaten here, so can't review the food, but friends have said it is fine. The landlord and... More

Serves a selection of good ales and home cooked food, in a pleasant atmosphere. Good prices and all the usual pub-grub favourites. What's not to like?
