Charm and good beer, we sat in the snug and enjoyed the conversations with two young locals. Good beer selection, and they had some tasty pizzas available as well, nice decorated pub, well worth a visit.
Visited on trip to Northern counties with OGJ 07.01.18. One of my old favourites in Manchester. Excellent atmosphere, with a cosy snug at the back of the bar. Eight changing ales on cask, all served with sparklers.

Visited on 18th September 2016. Lovely old pub about 5 mins walk from Oxford Rd station and in the shadow of the railway. Long thin pub split into several levels and areas with an outside deck. Tiling on the wall by the bar is great. Don’t let the Greene King sign put you off, had a couple of Burscough beers on plus house lager brewed at Belhaven plus other cask and macro lagers. Beer quality good, as we were the only customers, service was decent. Prices not bad. Wouldn’t rush back but a decent enough trad old pub.
A nice pub with traditional traditional tiling and a small terrace overlooking the river (actually more of a brook here). There are about eight hand pumps but several were off when we visited.

It’s tiled front that looked onto the side of the former Oxford Road BBC building hides a pub that is predominantly wood furnished throughout, although the very small central snug area has cosy soft furnishings and a fire which everyone is forced to cluster around given the space available. There’s low lighting throughout making it suitably atmospheric. There bar stocks a choice of craft ales and there’s a DJ area at the other end. If the weather is nice the balcony overlooking the shallow river Medlock is a fine place to sit.
Less than 15 minutes to walk from Piccadilly Station along the city canal to this pub, located in the part of Manchester called Oxford Road. A traditional, friendly pub with a cozy snug where I sat down and enjoyed three halves, well-kept ales from Outstanding and Conwy breweries. Attentive barmaid who gave me samples of the three cask ales before buying. In addition to the cask ales the pub stocks some bottles of interest. The right kind of music, that is from the Oasis, was played during my stay and helped to make me feel comfortable here. Very relaxing before noon on a Saturday in early July. Would love to return (visited, 07.07.2012).
I really have fond recollections of this place having popped in during 2 hugely fun trips to Manchester. Nice decor, a good couple of real ales on tap and generally very convivial. I’d love to go back.
Nice pub not far from Oxford Road Station. Used to be a brewpub, but the brewery closed years ago. On my visit in July 2009 they had 5 or 6 real ales, tried one from Bragdy Conwy and one Bank Top Mild, they were nice and well kept. Friendly and nice service. It was a quite lively quizz night with a lot of students from the nearby University area. Nice and friendly place, well worth a visit.
