Some of the best traditional pubs in Manchester have been highlighted in a new book about pub architecture by CAMRA, The Campaign for Real Ale.


Mr Thomas's Chophouse is one of the most popular traditional Manchester pubs.

Britain’s Best Real Heritage Pubs is an illustrated book featuring 270 pubs of outstanding historical interest in the UK, with 27 of the pubs being located in Greater Manchester - and a handful of these in Manchester City Centre.

The book’s author Geoff Brandwood, of CAMRA’s Pub Heritage Group said “our pubs have been changed so much during the past half century that ones with genuine historic interiors are now incredible rarities. This book identifies the top 270 of these national treasures and presents a unique picture of the diversity of interior styles spanning a century or more ”.

The book will be available to purchase from the 6th of May in all good book shops.
