Lovely pub, with one of the most well preserved interiors I have ever come across. The original tiling and mosaic floor give this place so much appeal, the beers are superb, with the Lagonda being particularly excellent. Service was efficient and the clientele are a mixture of tourists and local ale heads who appreciate the relaxed atmosphere that exists in the Marble Arch. My favourite pub in Manchester.
I park my car near the Marble and walk past this place every day. Which is a massive bonus for a quick pint after work. Quick story about The Marble Arch. When Decadence was released my brother sent me to pick some up. Got some other stuff, sat in the beer garden for a pint. Two hours later I’m miles away in a pub watching United ’**** I’ve forgot the beer’. Rang them but couldn’t hear anything because of the match. Finally about 6 hours after I’d left. Barman went to check and they were still there. Get the fu*k in. The food is not fine dining but better than most pubs. The beer is great, Marble beers are superb. Always have a few guests on. Good foreign bottle selection. The ceiling is superb. Bogs stink. The locals are cool. Bar staff are nice. The guys at Marble seem to be good people and they brew great beer. Love this place. Regularly drive quite a distance just for one pint.

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.
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.
Can’t fault this pub really. Good keg and cask selection, mainly from Marble brewery. Bottles and can selection looks interesting. Restaurant through the back offered great food and service was very friendly.
I felt at home the moment I walked into this very lively place. Great food and great beer in a convivial atmosphere. I enjoyed every different Marble beer I tried. I also loved the mix of clientele, all united by the love of good beer.
