As many others quite crowded on a friday evening.
Decent and ok ale selection both on tap and bottles.
Some very new to me.
Nice patio also in the summer time!

Surprisingly solid selection of casks on my visit. I had heard itís more gastropub style here but didnít get that vibe at all. Pleasant for a beer or two. Bar snacks available. Friendly pub not far from Marble Arch.

Not yet back to the glories of 10-15 years ago, but a huge improvement on recent years. Mainly local micros on display and seems to be reasonably busy.

Freestanding pub surviving the regeneration around the Rochdale Road area of the city centre. Itís a white painted building and not a planned layout inside with a staircase dominating the central area that leads up to the restaurant. The pub part has a 20th century period charm to it with a mainly wooden decor and furniture throughout. As you enter their a piano and selection of guitars which you can use if the mood takes. Next to these are a set of modern patio doors that look out of place but also lead to the beer garden area that canít hide from the noise of the A-road that encircles the city centre. At the other side of the bar an open fire creates the cosiest part of the pub. They could probably do something to lessen the smell of the toilets. This is also a real ale pub, although the selection of lagers are well served too. Thereís at least six real ales, often more on offer at any one time.

Another pub worth visiting being in Manchester. Very close to Marble, a bit away from the street, but easy to see. Can at times be quit crowded, with not much space in the bar area. Great variaty in the beer range, and at most times in good condition. Friendly staff, often live music, they do food as well, but havenīt eaten here yet. A much better pub, than it looks from the outside :-)

The Angelís in a very convenient location close to many of the other good bars in the north Manchester. The pub has about 8 cask options of mostly local beer. Thereís a few decent options on keg. The pubís decor is pokey and a bit tired, but welcoming. Nice character. The prices were unbelievably reasonable. The food menu looked quite nice too. Overall, this place is definitely worth a stop on a crawl.

A real ale freehouse located in the northern part of Manchester. A relatively traditional pub serving beverages downstairs and food upstairs. 10 active hand pumps and some bottles of interest. Good food including home-made burgers and the one that I ordered; a Ploughmanís platter with cheese and liver pate. Uncomplicated and friendly atmosphere with a popular patio. Just a few minutes from Marble Arch (visited, 05.07.2012).

A pub-cum-restaurant (supposedly) with an interesting range of beers.
The Angel has a reputation as a gastropub but Iíve yet to see any food being served there. Perhaps the restaurant is upstairs, although Iím not sure as I once dragged a few work colleagues here for dinner and was told ďwe donít serve foodĒ. Odd.
It does have a good range of mainly local(ish) beers though, all served from the small, low ceilinged bar downstairs. This is accessed either from the side or via patio doors at the front and through a room with a grand piano that looks like an underused storage room. If I donít sound too enthusiastic about the Angel itís not that I donít want to like it Ė I do! It holds lots of promise but itís never delivered it for me and somehow seems a bit lacklustre. Having said that, I was quite entertained last time I was here when I overheard some CAMRA types bemoaning the fact that they couldnít get tickets to the Liverpool Beer Festival because they all went to local people so they could have a piss up. ďI mean,Ē said one of them indignantly, ďIs it a beer festival or is it a social event?Ē. Funny, I thought beer festivals were social events but perhaps I donít take them seriously enough. Anyway, Iíll try out the Angel again next time Iím in the area Ė that is if I can resist walking straight past and going a bit further up the road to the Marble Arch.
