About the Pub

This Joseph Holts house was converted from a former bank in the late 90s. Although brightly lit, the decor features lots of wooden panelling & screens giving a much older traditional feel. Fixed bench seating on the John Dalton Street side of the pub and a range of old prints & other bric a brac adds to the feel.

As a Holts pub, offers some of the cheapest drinks in the city centre. As well as the keenly priced Holts draft beers, the full range of Holt's bottled beers is stocked alongside a wide variety of spirits. Located between Deansgate & Albert Square, the pub attracts a wide clientel from shoppers to local office workers but retains a core of friendly regulars. Stays relatively quiet and doesn't tend to attract the more unruly element from some of it's Deansgate neighbours.

Upstairs is a large dining room serving lunchtime meals of the traditional pub fare variety. Good value offers for the budget concious such as two meals for £8 are available.

Tuesday night is quiz night with questions set personally be landlady Stacey. Every week the losing team gets to choose a specialist subject for a round in the following week's quiz.

Manchester's longest running free comedy club, Comedy Balloon, is held in the upstairs room every Wednesday (http://www.comedyballoon.co.uk/). The room is available for hire other nights & many local societies meet here regularly.

The Knitted Kittens craft club meets upstairs first Tuesday of the month. It's a place for crafty minded people to meet up to knit, crochet, sew and make while listening to good tunes. Everyone is welcome from beginners to pros.
