About the Pub

Named after the alderman who donated the nearby botanical gardens to the city. The atmosphere of this gem is clear even before entering, as the buzz of conversation is audible before opening the door. Inside it is a pub of two halves, with the front encompassing two traditional style snugs, full of Hydes memorabilia, before opening up into a large bright conservatory area at the rear. However, the convivial atmosphere is maintained throughout by drinkers as mixed in age as they are in their drinking tastes, with real ale, red wine and champagne drinkers alike engaged in lively discourse without having to compete with piped music. The pub is now a drinks-only operation but this doesn’t detract from its popularity. Cask discounts on weekdays 12 till 5, please ask. A newly enlarged beer garden was created in mid-2013. Set on different levels and with varying level of shade, this really is a draw for those wishing to drink alfresco, and to be away from the traffic fumes of Wilmslow Road. There is a ramped entry at the rear from the garden, with doors that can be opened wide across when the weather allows, making the garden almost a natural extension of the conservatory. The conservatory has furniture of the high chairs and tables variety. The former doorway to the right of the bar was also blocked off to make a new 'room'. This has a different character from the rest: it’s a cosy area with upholstered seating, and frankly much better use of the space than before, though to get to it from the front door you now have to go three-quarters of the way round the pub. As you walk round you may notice the assortment of porcelain tea-pots; this is part of the late landlady's 100 piece collection now under the care of her husband who took on the role of manager.
