This is a very nice place to take visitors from outside Manchester. The food is very good, staff is friendly, but it is advisable to book if you want to sit in the front room. And this is really the part where you want to be: a table in the front part of the restaurant, with a view of the... More

Friendly staff and excellent food! We had the Barnsley lamb chop and the fish pie- both were fantastic! The place has a lovely relaxed vibe! Would definitely recommend!

Just popped in for a drink and with several beers on handpump wasn't disappointed. Holt's beers were in pretty good nick. Lovely Victorian tiling and memorabilia.

Went for Sunday lunch with my family after Irish parade. Place wasn't busy as it it has been on previous visits on a Sunday. This is a place which is full of history and it part of Manchester soul.

Awesome food, in particular the Manchester plate! Must try with a pint of Sams special bitter! Traditional deserts also very good.

As always the food and welcome was first class. This is our pub of choice when in town. I really enjoyed the steak pudding, while my wife had the fish and chips.
