We were out in Manchester on a works christmas party. Obviously we were in high spirits and there were around 14 of us so we were quite loud. However none of us were offensive or rude just laughing and one girl whistled. A member of staff flew over and shouted pack it in. He was so aggressive it was frightening,... More

We dropped in to get warm during the christmas markets: it was packed but there were plenty of staff on so we got served no problem. Nice selection of beers and buzzing atmosphere and very old, interesting pub with an upstairs.

Great atmos! Full of fun and happy punters! We proper enjoyed having a couple of well deserved beers outside at lunchtime even though the weather was a bit glum.

It's clearly a pub for 'locals' but does exactly what it says on the tin. Good place to rest a while during shopping trips. Cheap drinks (financially) but good quality. Very busy, which is always a good sign

How people can complain about the service or the drinks selection is beyond me. Sinclairs is a proper no frills boozer not a boutique pub! All the booze is from Sam Smiths brewery, personally I find most of it quality products and it's so cheap! The regulars and bar staff are friendly and always up for a laugh. It can... More

Didn't eat, however me and friends came for a drink and it was a pleasant experience. The price of a beer or a cider was fantastically cheap and I enjoyed the taste. Inside was smart, warm and comfy. Outside had nice scenery, however somehow even though the roof covers are there somehow the seats were still wet from the previous... More

Sinclair's Oyster Bar is such a waste of what could be a fantastic place. Firstly it has the perfect location right by all the high end retailers, which makes an ideal spot for thirsty shoppers. Secondly it in a unique and beautiful building, with real charm and character. Thirdly and unbelievably given the other two factors, it must be one... More

We had the choice of 5 pubs - all next door to one another for a Friday lunchtime drink on a shopping trip & we had the misfortune to get it wrong! Completely lacking in anything even resembling customer service served by what seemed like schoolboys out of dripping wet plastic tumblers. Could not find a chair to sit on... More
