Samuel Smith

About the Pub

Sam Smith's only central Manchester outlet which stopped serving real ale many for many years but was noticed to be selling cask again in early 2022 though it had apparently been selling cask Old Brewery Bitter since 2020.

This is a fine timber framed building which has been moved on 2 locations, the last time being when Shambles Square was demolished. The pub is split over 2 floors with a separate bar on each floor. Be aware that you will have to use a plastic glass if you want to sit outside the pub.
