About the Pub

The Salutation is a gem of a pub hidden away from the busy Oxford Road. Its tucked away inside the expanded Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), next to their Students Union and just behind the Royal Northern College of Music.

The pub is frequented by students and staff of both institutions as well as local residents. In 2011, MMU purchased the pub from Punch Taverns and in June 2013 the Student Union took control of running the pub.

In 2019 they entered into an agreement with Bollington Brewery and consequently four handpumps of the six handpumps usually carry their beers, with two more for guests from other breweries. There is also a good selection of keg including two from Bollington, Derbyshire brewed Moravka lager and offerings from Seven Bro7hers and Shindigger. Food is available every day from a short menu (burgers, fish and chips plus small, tapas like plates) with vegetarian and vegan options.

The layout of the pub is basically rectangular with a central bar area and a pool table at the rear. A sympathetic refurbishment of the interior took place in summer of 2014 which saw a lot of the original features & retained keeping the character and ambience of the pub intact while converting the former letting rooms upstairs to meeting & function rooms. In 2019 there was a further refresh and "spruce up" and which give the interior a "fresher feel" without destroying the atmosphere of the pub.

A blue plaque on the outside of the pub commemorates that it was built on the site of lodgings used by The Reverend Patrick Bronte and his daughter and where that daughter Charlotte Bronte began to write Jayne Eyre.

In a slightly less significant claim to fame, the pub was also the location of the last ever show by comedian the late Chris Sievey - famed as his alter ego Frank Sidebottom - on 11th June 2010 commemorated by a plaque inside.

The former outside courtyard is currently out of use due to building work on MMU's new digital media department.
