What a nice place!

Travelling to Manchester to see Man utd v Swansea City we checked in advance if it was ok for children and away fans. We were made very welcome when we arrived with a booked table waiting for us for lunch.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and there was a good atmosphere among home and away fans in this traditional pub with real ales.

It was explained to us that if we took a free Slice points card we would have a discount on the food, but also the drinks that were ordered at the table. This made it even better value.

The food menu was quite basic, mainly burgers and pizzas, but very good quality. Mine was honestly one of the best pizzas Ive had.

We stayed on for a few more drinks and watched the live football shown on a number of screens before going to our game at Old Trafford.

The pub was a great part of a good day out - just a shame about Swansea's result against Man Utd!

Rude arrogant staff that didn't have the foresight to see their bar empty when they decided to show the Ireland football match when the England game was playing. Had the dough balls - undercooked and cold... Pizza was burnt. Save yourself the trouble and find another establishment

Great little pub. I've been going in the Sawyers for many years on and off. Its situated centrally so ideal for pre-UTD games, after shopping, a mooch pint etc. Old fashioned inside and always has a good atmosphere. No fancy drinks just pints. Lively at weekend too, very busy around 11.

First visit here was to watch the rugby & we had a bite to eat while watching back to back matches.

Great atmosphere, lots of choice on the menu. The pizzas are thin & cripsy. Look out for the duck & hoisin pizza - its amazing!

Staff friendly & great service - despite the pub being rammed full of rugby fans!
