“Fab Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here after trying to find a place that allowed children in, we received a warm welcome and the waitress was excellent. The menu is extensive and just about caters for everyone - have to say one if the nicest Caprese Salads I've ever had. Will definitely return.

“Nice food, good quick service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

I had a quesquidilla my friend had a jerk chicken pizza on a Wednesday lunch time. Food was delicious, service was excellent and the price of the lunch time meal wasn't bad. It was very quiet for a city centre pub at lunch time.

“Great pizza, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

After a few miserable meals out recently, I wasn't expecting great things today, but the Sawyers Arms was just what we needed! Two thin base, tasty pizzas, with rich toppings (not very authentic Neapolitan, but certainly very good!) and a pint and a half of good Real Ale came to an amazing special offer price of under fourteen pounds. Served on wooden boards, the pizzas stayed warm and were easy to cut. Nice surroundings, friendly and helpful staff. Even the toilets were good! Wasn't keen on the piped music, but that's just me. We'll be back!

“Nice pizza and pint after refurbishment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

The outside of this traditional pub on the corner of Bridge St and Deansgate always looked great - tiles and curved glass windows - and great to see if put back to it's original best after the refurbishment in late 2012. The investment in a big proper pizza oven then gives the menu a twist which makes it for me a great combination. The menu isn't just pizzas so have some other things on it like burgers but I have the Inferno Pizza which was hot and spicy on a lovely thin crust. On the say we went they had run out of red onion (odd - they could of popped next door to Sainsbury's and get some!). Staff were friendly and took our order at our table which was nice although you can order at the bar too. Drinks were not over priced which was good to see. Summary - go for the Pizza, sit on the raised are level on the ground floor in a cosy seat and have pint.
