A friendly, medium sized brewpub with stylish Victorian exterior and interior. Good range of their own beers on cask and bottles, including vintage bottled ales to take away. Service minded and knowledgeable barmaids. Laidback mood. A must-visit pub, but maybe slightly overrated (visited, 05.07.2012).
pretty nice place. Specially if its a good weather and you can sit outside. most of the beers are marble beers, however the most interesting marble beers are warm and just to buy and take home. they have some good belgian beers.. like orval, saison dupont, catillon and more..
A great pub just a short walk up from Shudhill tram stop, amazing tiled floor that slopes down to the bar where there is always a great range of Marble beers on. Good food and one of the best selections of cheese Iíve seen for a long time to complement the fantastic beer!
A wonderful pub, the flagship of the Marble Brewery and a must visit place for both the building and the beers.
Iím a big fan of Marble beers. They make some really excellent stuff on a par with the best and, in keeping with this, they have a fantastic brewpub to serve it in. The Marble Arch is a short walk out of town in the wasteland around Rochdale Road but itís well worth a visit and shouldnít be missed. Inside, the pub is tiled from floor to ceiling (including the ceiling) in golden coloured glazed brick and thereís a lovely frieze with a grape and vine motif intertwined with words proclaiming the wares of yesteryear - gin, rum, wines, brandies, whiskies, ale, porter and cordials.
It can get rather crowded but can be forgiven this (and you can always decant to the less picturesque room at the back, which may be quieter). Overall, they get a lot right here Ė about eleven taps, including a couple of guests, excellent gourmet food to go with it (although itís by no means predominantly an eating place) and good service.

Excellent must see pub in Manchester. A large range of Marble beers on cask and a couple of guests. Also nice selection of 75cl special edition bottles, etc. Food was very tasty, the staff know their stuff and the brewery is excellent! Highly recommended.
fabulous, a feast for the senses!
the interior has huge vaulted ceilings with a tiled mosaic running around walls and floor. functional furniture. brilliant atmosphere and the beer is cracking! loads of choice all great and plenty to take home.
maybe slightly on the pricey side, but probably worth it.
go and go now!
Love it. As soon as I entered I knew this place woulld live up to the name. Not much more I can add that the other reviewers havenít already said. Great beers in absolutely perfect form...insanely sessionable. The food is excellent, a touch on the pricey side but honestly worth it. Staff were extremely friendly on out two visits and everyone drinking here was happy. Crackiní pub. Wish it was my local.
