proper city centre pub,of a type I had long thought extinct..cracking beer and food..very busy sometimes (good sign!)..like the sloping floor down to the bar...could film a scene from 'Ripper Street' here with very little conversion...was fascinated and delved into the history of the area....

Stumbled on this little gem by mistake. What a find. Home cooked mouthwatering traditional food. Visited with my granddaughter who also was very impressed. They also had half price offer on food in February. I will most certainly be becoming a regular visitor here.

When deciding were to take my son for a belated birthday lunch, The Marble Arch was a unanimous choice. The beer is kept very well and I know they would have liked more of it! We all had the roast beef and it was lovely, so tasty. My husband and son each had a desert, cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding,... More

Just a warning. The pay and display car park adjacent to the pub is camera controlled. 5 minutes late back at the car and I received a letter one week later fining me £100,reduced to £60 for early payment. They had photos of my car on the way in,and out. Expensive lunch !

Hi, Thank you very much for your feedback on your time with us at The Marble Arch, it's unfortunate that the parking fine was issued. Sadly we do not own, nor have the control over the adjacent car park so we're unable to assist with this obviously trying situation. However we appreciate you taking the time to highlight this issue... More

Visited this pub last Friday lunch time. The floor is on a slope which made the pub quite quirky ! Great selection of real ale beers and we chose to eat lunch here. Husband had fish chips and mushy peas which he enjoyed, I tried the vegan balls with arrabiata sauce which were good but only 3, so a really... More

We visit the Marble as often as we can and it never fails to disappoint. Always a good range of Marble's own range and a number of guest beers. The building itself is an absolute gem and if it could speak could tell many a tale. The cheese boards are legendary! For those complaining about price, yes it is a... More

Visit mainly to sample their own brews. An excellent old pub with a vast choice of real ales. If good beer is what your after, its a fantastic place. Excellent atmosphere and the food looks goos as well.

Been past many times and always wanted to try it so this time we walked up after work. It is about a 10 minute walk from Shudehill but definitely worth the effort. The lounge is quite small with only about 12 tables and small bar. Good choice of draught beers/ciders but the best features are the tiled walls and ceiling... More

The Marble Arch pub is located just north (maybe half a mile) of the top end of the Northern Quarter, on Rochdale Road on the way out of Manchester... The interior decor of sloping floor and tiles everywhere are worth a visit alone, but what makes the long walk to this pub from the centre of Manchester worth it is... More

If you want to guarantee yourself a table I would definitely recommend you book (for food!), although the atmosphere in the pub itself is so much better than the dining room! It's a brilliant little pub right in the heart of Manchester. Food is of a brilliant standard (the fish pie was mostly mash though) and it gets very busy...... More
