About the Pub

A Joseph Holt Brewery pub, the Spread Eagle is a world away from the trendy modern bars that dominate the Chorlton area of Manchester. Although it is only around 12 years old (having been converted from a former life as a hotel) it is very much a "traditional" pub.

Coming from the Joseph Holt stable, beer is cheap - no bad thing in one of Manchester's more pricy suburbs. Joseph Holt's Bitter is the only true permanent ale on sale. There are permanent pumps for the IPA and Bitter. The guest spot is taken by a Holt's seasonal. The full range of Holt's bottled ales is also available.

The vault contains a darts board. In an interesting variation on pub games, there are regular "card school" sessions.

Thursday night is quiz night from 9pm. There is karaoke every Friday and Saturday. The downstairs function room holds salsa classes every Tuesday and Thursday (7.30pm). The pub is popular for football with all major Premiership & Champions League games shown.

Children are welcome until 7pm and for football etc, but usually the pub operates an over 21s policy.

The pub has a number of rooms available with singles from £40, Double/Twin £60. Rates are room only - breakfast is not served.
