About the Pub

Handy for the MRI and Emmeline Pankhurst Centre, this is a lively, down-to-earth Holt's boozer. Built in the 1980s, as a true two-room house, having a traditional vault and a large rambling L-shaped lounge with the bar set between the rooms. The traditional decor of many a year was replaced in 2015 by a smart retro scheme that sees modern dark furniture married with varied wallpaper, pop posters, colourful seating, and lots of TVs. There is plenty to draw your eye such as the unusual photos of central Manchester and its people. A rarity in the vault is a pinball machine. The menu offers affordable meals with breakfast being served all day, plus sandwiches, paninis, and pub classics such as sausage and mash, and chilli. Outside is a walled drinking and relaxing area with plenty of seating. On the opposite side of the pub lies The Yard, an open space with gazebos and picnic tables, this hosts barbecues in fine weather. Teas and coffees are always available, be sure to watch out for value drinks offer too!
