This place is always full of so many characters and a great atmosphere. Ideal to sit outside in the summer months and massive area inside for the winter months. Ideally situated in the centre of manchester.

Met up with some friends from out off town and it started off as a nice evening apart from the rather ignorant bar staff, we were told that they closed at 11.30 which was fine by us. At 10:55 we got our final drink and were sat there quite happily chatting when at 11:05 this very large menacing looking man... More

Always a good time had by many in sinclairs oyster bar. I've never looked back since finding this gem in the city centre. All their beers are Sam Smiths products which are possibly not to everyone's taste but at £2 a pint what have you got to lose. Never had a problem in the oyster bar and they will certainly... More

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
