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

Two-room former Boddington's Brewery house, each room having its own entrance and character. The left side is the lounge, comfortably decorated with images of old Manchester. The right-hand side is the vault with plenty of photos celebrating the successes of both the city's football teams; equally comfortable with much bric-a-brac on the beams and wood panelling. This room was once part of the adjacent cottage, this was bought by Boddington’s in the late 1970s to enlarge and enhance the premises. Outside is a beer yard. Televised sports are a big draw for the pub, and during the week most days have some form of entertainment laid on: Mon - ladies darts; Tue/Thu - mens darts; Wed - open-mic night (very popular); Fri - an artist; Sat - karaoke; Sun - singalong with club singers. The pub operates an over-21 policy, which suits the regulars just fine.
