About the Pub

Primarily a cocktail and taco bar, this opened 10/9/18 as Shack, although on Feb 2019 it has re-opened as Mary & Archie, at least temporarily, as sale to Shack people apparently fell through. History: Closed 30/7/18 as Mary & Archie for good as the owners wish to concentrate their efforts on the sister, and larger Chorlton outlet. This was the smallest and the longest established of the Burton Road bars and was possibly more characterful and quirky than its later-arriving cousins. The interior was not large, yet they managed to make good use of it with a disparate array of furniture seemingly crammed into a relatively small space. Beyond the bar there was a small additional seating area at the rear. An array of furniture styles provides for comfort in the narrow space. Cupcakes and such were available during the day, supplemented by a full menu from opening time till 9 daily. The cask beer was a feature here with three beers normally being on, usually from but not always local such as First Chop, Marble, Hornbeam, and Dark Star breweries. No cask cider, but good bottled variants complimented a range of British and foreign bottled beers. Quirky, and a fun place to drink and socialise. Could get very busy inside and out, so you may have had to stand at the bar. Mary & Archie (the name reflecting the names of the owner's parents) opened in June 2011 following a change of ownership from the premises that were Silver Apples; this originally opened in Nov 2008.
