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?

We stumbled in here by coincidence, guided by the high ratings on tripadvisor, being very hungry. Although we are fans of pubfood and don't mind a simple meal, most of our food was simply tasteless. Although we asked the waiter (all of the personal also seemed too young to really be working year round in a pub) for suggestions, he... More

The real ale we had was of really poor quality. We had a second because sometimes you get a bad batch but the second one was worse. Im not sure if its just not a big seller for them or if it was a bad time to try it, but with some of the best real ale pubs down the... More

There is no shortage of places to eat in Manchester, so we decided to use the "Near Me Now" facility on TripAdvisor and the Town Hall Tavern came up showing decent reviews. We have had a drink in there previously, but never eaten. The visit got off to a great start with a very impressive pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord.... More

Went to Town Hall Tavern for lunch (2 couples), very full downstairs so directed to a small room upstairs which was typical old pub room, clean and pleasant but a little lacking in atmosphere. Drinks order taken immediately on sitting down and menus provided. We all opted to choose from the fixed price 2 for £8.95 menu which has a... More

We asked the taxi driver where to eat on our way from the airport and he suggested the Town Hall Tavern. He was spot on great food and drinks. A real pub. Seemed like the place where all the locals hung out. Just wish we could have gone back the next day! We will do it the next time. The... More
