Probably best visited to experience an older style of small single room pubs that just wouldnít get built in this day and age. One of three pubs on within spitting distance of each other in the middle of Portland Street, this is a one room affair with a small bar sporting five ale pumps and some lagers. The ale is Hydes given it is a brewery pub of the same name, but it is a dependable brewery so the ale is fine with all the seasonal ales on here. There is a black wood and artex walls style that give it s pseudo-Tudor appeal, and there are plenty of pictures of Manchester past on them and a signed slide of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. It only takes a few people to make this place busy. The male toilets are in an outhouse at the rear.

A tiny localsí pub with three hand pumps.. Of the three beers on offer only one (brewed for the Queenís diamond jubilee) was of interest as the other two were standard Hydes fare.
Sitting alone in the Grey Horse I felt rather uncomfortable, like a stranger in someoneís living room. I got the impression there was a small core of local clientele who didnít expect, or indeed want, to see other people there.
There is just one room now, although there must have originally been two, and there are two small television screens. Both were showing football. I couldnít drink up and get out fast enough.

Small one-roomed, classic British pub right in the heart of the city. Three cask ales from Hydes in excellent condition. Quiet and laidback atmosphere early on a Saturday. Decent service. Great Tamla Motown music (visited 07.07.2012).

What a small pub, probably the smallest there is. Like stepping into somebodyís living room. Lots of locals and serving Hydes beers. Will definately return.

The beer’s excellent (Hydes seasonals on offer), decor ropey, cheerful staff and the pub’s so miniscule that you’ve got no option but to put a smile on your face and forgive the f’king imbecile who’s just crushed your foot. There’s a great mix of regulars (where the hell do they live?) and passers-by.
Just don’t go for a slash when it’s icy out.

A tiny Hydes pub in the centre of Manchester although I believe the Circus next door is the smallest. Other scoopers have often quoted this as the place to go for any new Hydes seasonal but I mustíve always caught it at the wrong time because Iíve never seen anything but the standard btiter and mild on in here. Great place to drop in for a pint if you are heading for a Chinese meal and being so small it soon fills up so that you get a good atmosphere.

I really like this pub. Itís one of Manchesterís smallest (almost next door to the smallest, Tetleyís Circus) and is a cosy, welcoming bar with some well-looked after Hydes ales. The seasonal beer is generally available in here alongside bitter, light and another beer. Itís very close to Chinatown and is located in an interesting road with regards to the industrial revolution - see below for details. Overall a good little pub which makes the best of Hydesí generally dull beers. http://www.industrialpowerhouse.co.uk/downloads/audiotrails/Cotton_trail.pdf?id=235&cat=5&type=2
