See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

For a small pub this usually has a busy atmosphere given the confines of the space. The layout has traditional elements with a modern, clean mushroom decor. The narrow entrance is flanked by two panelled rooms, a high-stool snug to the left for those wanting an intimate space, and a more open but screened lounge to the right. The bar is next, opposite that is another multi-paned screened area with fireplace. Beyond all that is a more open lounge area where TV can be viewed. Photos of old Didsbury provide added interest. History: At one point this was a tiny, narrow John Smiths house that had become somewhat run-down. Taken over by Manchester brewer, Joseph Holt in the late 1990s, it was extended and transformed into a pleasant drinking house.
