ManVsBeer  (2083) Hebden Bridge, England | November 9, 2012| Updated January 26, 2016
A mix of old and new in this bar cum pub. Look up for the historic architecture that still adorns the upper part of this establishment, which makes it a pleasant place to have a drink below. The bar always has a great selection of rotating ales and two smaller cosier rooms to drink them in if the main area is not to your liking. Keg ale is also here on rotation too.

Nice old gothic venue at the end of Oldham St. Popped in on a Sunday evening in July. Beer range has expanded with lots of keg taps plus cask. Scooped in a new Track CDA which was top notch. It’s always been a decent venue but has stepped up since I was last here. A definite stop off in the future after this visit

Conveniently close by to where I was staying. Here’s a good selection of beer and in a rather splendid building with high arches and ornate celling (protected with mesh as it looks as though it has seen better days). Very busy on a Saturday evening but the staff handled the crowds fine and with happy service. Popped in a couple of times during my stay.

Boudicca  (1232) London, England | April 9, 2012| Updated June 16, 2013
A spectacular church-like pub with six regular hand pumps and, during the Winter Ales Festival, an excellent, ever-changing range of interesting, mainly local beers. According to a board in the Crown and Kettle, there has been a pub on this site since 1734. The current building is from the nineteenth century and it’s a monument to the Victorians’ penchant for magnificent Gothic stonework and soaring arches which wouldn’t be out of place in a cathedral. The ceiling in the main bar is crumbling badly and covered with a net, presumably to protect customers from being hit on the head by falling masonry. The “vault”, the room next door, has been restored to its former glory so that the ceiling looks even more impressive (as well as safe) and there are green leather benches like those in the House of Lords. Apparently, in World War Two it was the preferred drinking hole for black American GIs who were segregated (whether forcibly or by choice, I don’t know) from their white compatriots. I wonder what they made of it and their Mancunian hosts? (Last visited 23 January 2013).

Fin  (1184) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | April 2, 2017
This is a wonderful old corner building, Grade 2 listed it’s located just to the north east of the Northern Quarter on the wrong side of the ring road, so technically in Ancoats. It is at junction where the ring road meets the Oldham road, its close to Bar Fringe, The Smithfield and Band on the Wall. We came here on Friday 31st March 2017, the we being me, Barry and Dad on our annual weekend away.

It looks great from the outside but even better on the inside, with the most wonderful ornate really high ceiling, this is netted as some of the plasterwork is peeling away. We all felt it seemed quite church like from the inside. Apparently it dates back to the 1700’s. The bar is ahead on the right as you enter and there is another room off to the right with its ceiling in a better state of repair. There is also a further room off to the right further back into the pub, this was being used purely as an art area to display photographs from a anti fascist festival back in 1994, there were some great snaps.

The beer choice was really good with a nice mix of both local and not so local offerings, we had a Weird Beard 7% brown ale on keg which was very pleasant. This was a great place and along with the much improved Smithfield a must visit if in the area.

Street corner pub in the northern quarter of the city. With its magnificent ceiling it gives a beer hall impression added by a few smaller snugs. It’s a free house with an array of six cask ales, mainly from regional microbreweries. Casks from Rat, Pennine, Peerless and Blackedge, among others, were on during our visit. Soul and Tamla Motown music. Friendly, stylish and cool place (visited on our way back from the NWAF, 23.01.2013).

Amazing architecture. They have a net over the ornate ceiling, presumably to protect customers in case bits fall off. However, for a pub that was only renovated a couple of years back, the furniture and interior is getting a bit scruffy. Almost deserted on a Wednesday evening. Four beers on handpump but only one was a scoop for me - that’s assuming that the house beer from Greenfield is not a rebadge. If you’re in Manchester to drink, you are going to be in that area anyway so it’s a must-visit but, beer-wise it is probably the most dispensable of the Northern Quarter stalwarts.

deyholla  (708) Minneapolis, Minnesota | November 29, 2017
A traditional feeling English pub with a decent amount of space. Service was not particularly beer oriented. A solid selection of casks with some national taps. Did not try the food on my visit. Prices are inline with the area. A solid pub.

An absolute must stop, an architectural delight by Manchester’s pub standard. Solid selection of beers from varying breweries, many of which I had not seen previously. No-nonsense service, direct and effective. Comfortable and warm feel despite the building’s cold lines.

Brugmansia  (668) Jylland, Denmark | June 23, 2013
Visited several times, and for sure worth a visit if you are in the Manchester area. They do from time to time do their own small pub festivals, which several of the pubs do around the winter ale festival. Large corner pub, can at time be a bit crowded. Large bar in the middle of the room.. Beers served most times in a good condition. I don´t think thedo food, but they do a few barsnacks. Friendly and serviceminded staff.
