The Castle Hotel

Packed full of history, charm and character, The Castle Hotel is one of the city's most famous pubs. With different rooms, small tables and a chatty crowd, this Northern Quarter haunt is nothing short of friendly - a great, cosy place to grab yourself a tipple or enjoy some live music. 

The Didsbury

A former coach house that's kept many of its original 18th century features, The Didsbury is a charming establishment filled with open fires and exposed beams. Plus, being in the gorgeous suburb it's named after ticks a few boxes too.

The Salutation

A pub and hotel in one, The Salutation is modern, yet still retains the traditional elements we all have a hankering for in winter. A long bar and exposed beams give it an old school and homely feel, while home-cooked bar snacks make for a cosy place to drink in Manchester, day or night.

The Lass O' Gowrie

The Lass O' Gowrie is nothing short of a Manchester institution, thanks to an iconic tiled exterior and great pub grub. For cosy vibes? We'd recommend the snug through the back, which is decked out in mossy dark greens with Manchester-themed wall art, vintage-look furniture and a fireplace too.

The Wharf

The Wharf is home to a great place for a pint come summer, but its warm interiors and toasty fireplaces make it a must in winter. Make your way to this cosy hideaway for light bites and a choice of six cask ales, 100 malts or over 50 wine bottles.
