About the Pub

This Wetherspoon pub was originally a billiard hall, built, in c1907, on a field sandwiched between a house called Sedge Lynn (demolished to make way for a cinema in the building which is now Cooperative funeral parlour) and Red Gate Farm.

Now a Grade II listed building, it was originally a Billiards Hall built by the Temperance Hall Billiard Company. Several such halls were built in and around Manchester and South London, to remove billiards from its normal setting of the public house and to further the aims of the Temperance Movement.

Taken on by Wetherspoon in 1999, the pub is now one of the better 'Spoons in Manchester for real ale. The Wetherspoon's standards of Ruddles, Doom Bar & Abbot are joined permanently by Phoenix Wobbly Bob & Moorhouses Blond Witch.

You can typically expect to find 4 or 5 guests available. Other popular guest breweries include Moorhouses, Acorn, Brightside, Hawkshead, Phoenix & Titanic. A member of the CAMRA LocAle scheme at least one beer should be from a local brewery.

The feel of the building is slightly unusual for a Wetherspoon, the high barelled ceiling dictating a single large open plan room with no pillars or other obstacles to break up the room. Even when busy (and it usually is), the pub can seem quiet as a result. You enter into a large seating area with the bar across the back of the room way in front of you. A raised area at the front is often filled with diners. A slightly lower raised area runs down the right hand side of the room with four seat boothes being the only break from the open plan layout.

The usual Wetherspoon food offering is in place, starting with breakfast at 8am and the main menu served until 11pm.
