Classy place.

A lovely spot to take a friend who may not know Manchester. The food is traditional eg. Lancashire hot pot type of food. Enjoyable and lovely to eat in an old elegant building.

Not very accessible for disabled people, needs to be brought into the 21st century. Food and drink are fine, staff are fine, but none of this counts if this counts if you are in a wheel chair.

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.

While serving food to other customers the two barmaids continued... More

First visit to this traditional pub. The beer, Timothy Taylor's Landlord, was in fine condition. Good choice of other ales and lagers. 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 enough variation to satisfy most people... 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.
