This place goes back a lot further than it looks like from the outside, so there's ample room to find a table either around the bar or in the quieter back room. Good choice of beer and sport shown regularly.

Used to go in here years ago and it hasn't changed much. On different levels inside. Good selection of different beers. Staff very friendly. Very quiet when we went in but it was midweek, so I would think busier at weekends or when the football is on. Will definitely be back.

We had just finished a meal in Salford Quays and sampled the mulled wine in Albert Square, the Christmas Markets. We called into the tavern to finish our day. When we first walked in, we thought it was so busy, we wouldn't get served. However, great staff were operating like clockwork and we had a great night in there. Great... More

Visited on Sunday for afternoon drinks away from the busy markets. Good ambience and good pint of bitter. Quite busy inside but felt like a proper pub and we both enjoyed our visit.

We called in on a Friday lunchtime for a drink and some lunch. Basic menu but was nice with good ales served. Sat in lower part of the pub at the back on some comfy sofas. Only gripe would be the service behind the bar, felt liked I was interrupting them by asking to be served!

Visited yesterday with the idea of enjoying a cheap and cheerful lunch. The place was deserted. A smell of drains pervaded and horrible Christmas music boomed out. Staff showed no interest. We left.

One of the pleasures of trip advisor is the varying reports you get of different places. So walking through the centre of Manchester looking for the right place to get a late(ish) lunch was proving problematic. A heady mixture of no local knowledge (coming from Glasgow), trip advisor review conflicts, personal tastes ( never eat at places that have pictures... More
