About the Pub

This is a modern pub, it sells a couple of cask conditioned beers at the high end of the price scale. Spacious ground floor with outside seating, albeit uncovered. A curving staircase leads you to the first floor which is mostly set aside for diners. Apart from the stairs, the two floors are linked by a feature "hole" in the upper floor.

HISTORY: As of 2/1/17 ownership changed from JD Wetherspoon to become the Botanist (part of New World PubCo). This was Wetherspoon's first venture into Didsbury (opening 19/3/2010) and was a welcome addition to the Didsbury village pub scene. Named after Dr John Milson Rhodes (1847-1909) who lived in Didsbury treating patients with learning difficulties and epilepsy. So highly regarded was Dr Rhodes that upon his death Didsbury’s four-square clock tower on Wilmslow Road was built to commemorate his life. Beer quality here was usually assured because the manager drank cask-conditioned beers herself and used her own experience and beer preferences to choose which beers to sell. Prior to this it started life as one of the Pitcher & Piano chain pubs.
