Very attractive interior, wiith mosaic floor and tiles walls and ceiling. It’s clear this place has been a bar since it’s birth. Randomly met with Phil & Kath whom I had seen earlier at Cloudwater. Told Phil a tall tale about dacshunds. Beer was tasty and they had their own and some guests. Didn’t try the food but I would return to do so.
Time warp pub with a brilliant Victorian tiled decor seemingly unchanged since it opened. This is Marble brewery’s flagship bar which is slightly out from the city centre (but still walkable) so random trade which exemplifies the city centre is low here, nevertheless it can get full at peak times. Excellent for a relaxing drink.
Lovely tiled pub in the Northern Quarter in Manchester. Beer range is predominantly Marble with a couple of guests.
Been here a few times. The food is good, the beer is always in good condition.
It’s worth the stroll out to, there’s plenty of places to take refreshments on the way or the return too.
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 haven’t 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. Crackin’ pub. Wish it was my local.
A wonderful pub, the flagship of the Marble Brewery and a must visit place for both the building and the beers.
I’m 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 it’s well worth a visit and shouldn’t be missed. Inside, the pub is tiled from floor to ceiling (including the ceiling) in golden coloured glazed brick and there’s 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 – about eleven taps, including a couple of guests, excellent gourmet food to go with it (although it’s by no means predominantly an eating place) and good service.

Tried to get here earlier in the day before the National Winter Beer Festival opened but unfortunately it didn’t open itself until 12:00 noon on a Saturday. Finally managed to get here early evening and stayed for a couple of hours. This pub has got just about everything the beer selection approx’ 6-8 handpumps with about 5 from their own brewery and then some beers from micro’s Salopian and Leyden were amongst the others on show when I visited, both were very good, the Marble Ginger was an absolute cracker. The interior of this pub is worth a visit in itself, stunning tilework on the walls and ceiling along with some amazing mosiac work on the floor. This pub has got to be amongst my favourite pubs now, loved it! Even the food which I never had (but Craig and family did) looked and was fantastic so I’m told. This pub is a classic.
Great place. Warm and low-key. Good range of Marble on offer across cask, keg and bottle, covering most of their core beers supplemented by one-offs and collaborations. Pretty good value on the taps, although the bottles are a bit dear. Friendly service.
This place is located a little bit outside the city centre, but it’s an easy walk and if you are visiting Manchester you should check out this classic pub.
Lovely place a bit off pist in Manchester. But only about 20 min walk from Piccadilly. Absolutely a must place to vistit.
Nice selection both on tap and bottles. Cousy lovely pub and a nice small patio also. You can also buy food here.
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).
