About the Pub

After 18 months of success at their original bar in Salford's Media City area, the Dockyard Spinningfields opened in April 2015 on the banks of the Irwell immediately adjacent to the pedestrian bridge which crosses the river at Left Bank.

Their tag line reads 'A proper pub, serving proper food and proper ale' and they mean it. The L shaped bar has 8 handpumps fitted. Four dispense Thwaites Wainwright (now brewed by Marstons) and house beer Dockyard Ale (a rebadged Thwaites TBC). A bank of four pumps server the guest ales which are always sourced from local breweries in support of owner Steve Pilling passion for local produce.

Housed in one of the many ground floor retail units under the Spinningfields office and residential blocks, the bar is spacious. There is a large outdoor area on the banks of the River Irwell which will be a real sun trap in summer.

The food menu consists of classic burgers, a selection of 'butties' ranging from ham & cheese through to a fish and mushy pea butty, ribs, wings, salads and a pie of the day. Sunday roasts are served.
