We stayed here after deciding to stay over in the city the evening before. The room was very clean and bed very comfortable. The location is spot on. I enjoyed drinking in the pub.

Fizzy corporate beers, sanitised refit, big tellies, nobody in it. It's very difficult getting to 100 characters on pubs this dull.

This is a typical Manchester back street pub with attitude. It takes you back fifty years and the beer is of a very high standard. For Camera people it is a must go to place.

Thought we’d pop in for a pint after the City game as we have done before. Was greeted at the door by an elderly man (doorman? Landlord? Random nutcase?) who refused us entry. We were not drunk and this is a City-friendly pub. The old...More

Nice room, comfortable bed, good TV, good wifi. Utterly ruined by spotting a small furry friend spotted scuttling across the room 30 seconds before I VERY rapidly vacated the room in the morning.

You get a key to a door that does not lead you through the pub. And the stairs are infront of you.
