About the Pub

The Old Abbey Inn is a pub which many people have no idea exists. Despite only being a few minutes walk from Oxford Road, it’s location tucked away in the centre of Manchester Science Park has seen it typically only open weekday lunchtimes to serve office workers. However, now the pub has been taken over by a group seeking to make it the heart of a new community.

Roots Kitchen Co-Op is a collective of cooks, foragers, brewers and musicians who launched the renamed Old Abbey Taphouse with a weekend of events in early October, following a two month long refurbishment. Upstairs at the pub hosts to a recording studio & rehearsal room with a well being studio due to open in November.

Food at the pub will be ethical and sustainable - organically grown & reared, traditionally processed, naturally refined without waste minimised. Visitors can expect slow cooked one-pots, seasonal salads, wood fired bakes, sourdough platters, and raw puddings, pizzas are a regular treat.

Quiz night is Monday, starting at 6.30-7pm.

The in-house brewery, Soul Doubt is now up and running.

Opening times can be erratic, will stay open until 3am if there are special events on, call beforehand if your planning a visit.
