What's on at GRUB

A venue hosting bottomless brunch, garden parties and more, GRUB is also boasting a gorgeous beer garden. From summers spent sipping cocktails and grabbing street food to soaking up the sun, this place offers it all.

The Briton's Protection

With a staggering whisky collection and traditional decor, The Briton's Protection is a great pub with bundles of character. Their beer garden is one of Manchester's finest with seating and parasols to offer shade, relaxation and comfort to those alfresco drinkers intent on soaking up some rays.

Beech Inn, Chorlton-Hardy

Chorlton favourite The Beech Inn is a prime example of beer gardens in this South Manchester area. Expect a small patio out the front and a larger space at the back, with heated and covered sections too, so you can enjoy it whatever the time of year. Better yet, they even have outdoor TV screens for showing sports if you don't want to miss a moment of the action.

11 Central

Enjoy a refreshing craft beer while overlooking the waterfront in Salford Quays at 11 Central, a restaurant and bar that has a wide range of tipples that'll tickle your fancy. Come for a couple and stay for the gin-making experience or a spot of live entertainment throughout the week. It has an incredibly tempting menu too, full of British favourites with a twist.

The Woodstock Arms

The Woodstock Arms is a great pub for summer thanks to its sprawling beer garden. Check out the mega outdoor offering at this West Didsbury boozer, all while sipping on a wide selection of refreshing beverages and tucking into classic British pub grub.

The Lawn Club

Cocktail Club and 1 other offer

The perfect spot for an al fresco cocktail (or three), The Lawn Club boasts some of the best drinking pods in Manchester, pretty festoon lighting and plenty of green space adorned with deck chairs, whether you're lounging on the lawn or relaxing on their sunny terrace. Head here for Friday night drinks and tasty nibbles, with refreshing summer spritzes to get stuck into at two for £12 on weekdays.
