About the Pub

Re-opening on 06.07.2020. For details of any changes to opening times, please contact the pub.

A traditional back street local, located next door to the city's main police station. It was under threat of demolition from 2014 to 2017 due to a new development but was saved after a determined battle by friends of the pub assisted by CAMRA. It is close to the site of the Peterloo massacre and is believed to be the only pub remaining from that period. A mural has been painted commemorating the massacre and adorns one of the walls.

Decoration places the emphasis on light colours, polished wood, and all neat and tidy with plenty of drinking space. Catering for the young and older crowds alike, it has a central bar serving all areas of the pub, the former games room now being converted into a function room. Soft, piped music is broadcast, to match the furnishings. The food servery with a new fresh menu is towards the rear, near the entrance to the beer garden, which spans an L-shaped area, ideal for the summer months.
