As I'm merely a customer and not the publican, I suggest you contact the pub directly rather than a reviewer!

Hi Can anyone give me a rough idea of how much the hotel charges for air conditioning and safety deposit box. Also do they have hairdryers.

Hello We don't have any air-con or safety deposit box facilities I'm afraid, but hairdryers are available on request.

Established in 1804, the pub derives it's name from the Georgian variety of potato, The Oxnoble. Boasting 10 en suite bedrooms, The Oxnoble is a traditional gastro pub/hotel serving excellent, modern English food sourced from the finest local ingredients.

Food is served in the historic pub where you can enjoy a pint of traditional cask ale or whisky from our excellent menu, or choose from our hand-picked wine list.

We are located in the Castlefield area of Manchester opposite the Museum of Science and Industry, within walking distance of the Manchester International Convention Centre and in close proximity to the MEN Area and Old Trafford - Manchester United Football Club and Lancashire Cricket ground
