Down the road from the Marble Arch, but in terms of choice and quality, light years behind. Seems to concentrate more on paler ales, the ales on offer were less than exciting. The pub is comfortable enough, just lacks something I feel, quality of beer could be better.
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.
roaring fire tempts you in here- always a white lion on and pictish- watch out for the strong beers hanging around- good friendly atmosphere well worth a visit- can be bust when city are at home-when the suns out the garden outside is handy- new german beer astra from hamburg on keg
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.
