About the Pub

Dukes 92 opened in 1991 in the very early days of the regeneration of Manchester's Castlefield district. Since then it has become an institution in the area having more than doubled in size with several expansions over the years. The bar takes it's name from the adjacent Lock No 92 on the Rochdale Canal where the canal flows into Castlefield Basin and meets the Bridgewater Canal & the River Medlock.

Is extremely popular in the summer months due to it's massive waterside patio area on the Castlefield Basin side of the building. Inside the main ground floor space is a large open plan area with one side of the L shaped bar to the right. The other side of the bar faces the rear of the building where the most recent expansion has added 'Dukes Grill' restaurant area. The upstairs gallery bar has a balcony overlooking the patio area and is available for hire for private parties. Two further event spaces not normally open to the public are also available to hire.

In addition to Dukes Grill (12 - 10 Mon - Thurs; 12 - 10.30 Fri; 10.30am - 11pm Sat; 10.30am - 9.30pm Sun) their are three further menus on offer - the bar menu, the pizza menu & the cheese and pate selection. The bar menu is served 12 - 3pm Mon - Thurs & 12 - 4.30pm Fri - Sun. Pizzas and sharing buckets are served until 10pm daily (10.30 Fri/Sat, 9.30 Sun).

Dukes 92 begain life as sister bar to Salford's Mark Addy, from which it inheritted the legendary cheese & pate selection. Served 12 - 7pm daily (12-6 Fri - Sun), for £7.95 you can choose from a selection of over 40 English & Continental cheeses and pate's, served with a choice of salad, granary or ciabatta bread and homemade pickles. Portions are massive - allow plenty of time to get through it or grab a doggy bag & take some home for later.

Although not obvious when first looking across the bar, real ale is served from two stainless steel handpumps on the corner of the bar with unusual oversize pump clips showing both ales available complete with tasting notes. Unfortunately real ale availability can be erratic and quality is often variable.
