A favourite with Manchester locals, The Old Wellington stands tall with its classic black and white Tudor stripes. Serving up an incredible menu with classic pub grub such as sausage and mash, the pub is one of the most recognisable in Manchester city centre. 

A classic pub that serves classic grub, Briton's Protection is an award-winning option, that serves real ale and a matching British menu. On sunny days, nab a spot in their beer garden and get some rays before you head back to the office.

From the massive beer garden through to the book shelves in cosy corners, The Wharf is one of Castlefield's most popular pubs. And it extends this homely feel to its food too, with a long list of classics, as well as a roster of daily specials.
