My partner and I visited on a recent trip to Manchester. We called for a drink, the staff were very helpful and polite and their was a good selection of ales and lagers. Although we didn't eat the food looked very nice and was presented very well.

£4.05 for one very mediocre pint of beer? Get real. I suggest the owner contacts the Ape and Apple for advice on how NOT to rip customers off. I will never set foot in there ever again. Bye.

Hi Nigel, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, though I would contest the content. The results of a recently conducted price survey shows that we are more than competitive in the local market, and besides a handful of privately leased businesses we actually come out top for value on several product categories. We are also a Cask... More

We called here by chance on Sunday. As there were 12 of us we thought it would be a bit of a problem fitting us all in as it was very busy in Manchester due to the Chinese New Year event. But no the staff were extremely accommodating and even though they were busy and full they opened the upstairs... More

One of the busiest days here in Manchester with over 50,000 people visiting the Chinese New Year celebrations found this place by accident it's a limited pie and mash menu but the pies are amazing served with rich gravy on a bed of quality mash simple but very good.

Stuck for a place to eat, I happened across this pub that did hot pies. The decor is nice and homely, quite an antiquated feel, with a good range of real ales on tap and good wifi coverage throughout the entire floor. I found the pies pretty tasty, with a 1940s feel about the enamel plate on a chopping board,... More

Found this place on a walk during my first few days in Manchester and am now there regularly. I like the fact it feels like a proper pub. It's a great spot and would recommend anyone to visit. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the menu is limited if you aren't into pies! Pork scratchings are... More

I went here for a catch up with my friends and we all found it a really nice experience; great food at decent prices and really welcoming and helpful service. I had my favourite pie which I get from other pieminister locations which is the chicken of aragon with mash and gravy and it was amazing as usual, everybody else... More
