“Another great night. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Came back to the Old Wellington, always a good choice. Deems i start out next door at the sinclairs oyster house for a pint then head over here for dinner. Have not been dissapointed yet. Generous portions on the fish and chips. Food always served piping hot. I'll be back again. Wait staff alwsys very attentive.

“Best pub in the area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Went in here after a pretty horrible experience in Sinclair's (next door). Completely different in here. The service was good as was the reception given. The warren of rooms on the ground floor are a delight and it complements Manchester perfectly.

Popped with family on a Wednesday dinner for a couple of jars. The bar is so clean and tidy and is full of northern feel. I love this place.

This place has excellent food. We ate there several times. Traditional English fare. Fish & chips were great. Large portions. Also try the beef, chicken pot pies and the deep fried mushrooms.
