This is a typical Manchester back street pub with attitude. It takes you back fifty years and the beer is of a very high standard. For Camera people it is a must go to place.

My first time in here. Seen it down the street many a time when driving in Manchester City centre. A old style pub. Worth a visit.

We went in the afternoon on a Saturday. Nice little back street pub and a throwback to how it used to be. There appeared to have a good set of regulars and the prices were keen. Quite small but a chilled atmosphere just a couple...More

We paid £60 for a twin room. Was a decent place to put the head down for the night. Rooms basic but adequate. TV with plenty of channels. No wifi. Shared toilet on every floor and shower was good with plenty of hot water. Walls...More

A nice traditional pub, hidden away down a back street. It has a few real ales on that were well kept, but it was dead as a door nail even on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
