About the Pub

From the outside this looks a splendid Victorian glazed tile building, and thankfully the inside evokes that traditionalism too. The walls show the pub's support for north-west performers and characters, alongside modern and period photos of Manchester. Very popular with students in term time, can be rather lacking vibrancy during academic breaks. Refurbished in early 2014 to a high standard, this kick-started the improving fortunes of this former Threlfall's Brewery house. Eight handpulls adorn the bar. If you fancy a number of the beers on the bar, they offer a 'beer-bat' - three one-third pints for the price of a pint. Snacks in the form of pies are available. There is a snug tucked away at the back for small informal gatherings or a larger function room upstairs for up to 40 people. Entertainment during the week involves the 'Big Fat Stupid' quiz on a Thursday, whilst it is promised that the upstairs function room will be used for more events in the future. Note the clever use of decking built over the River Medlock to create a smoking balcony opened by comedian and former pub regular Johnny Vegas. Voted 'National Pub of the Year 2012' in the Great British Pub Awards. Discounts of 20p off a half and 50p off a pint for CAMRA members. Also the site of the first Pisoire in Manchester, evidently depositing into the Medlock!
