Formally known as The Turks Head, this city Manchester favourite has had a revamp. Please welcome The Lower Turks Head and Scuttlers Wine Bar. Dating back to 1745, The Lower Turks Head is an established part of Manchester history, claimed as one of the oldest pubs in the area.
Although deceiving from the exterior, a step inside proves how huge the pub actually is. The new refurbishment showcases a modern stylistic approach with comfy chairs, lounging booths and a great outdoor balcony when Manchester offer us that rare warmth. The pub's adjoining sister bar, Scuttler's Wine Bar, is a new direction for the venue. Converted from an old bookshop, the name derives from nineteenth century Manchester gangs - The Scuttlers. For anybody who doesn't fancy The Lower Turk's Head's impressive selection of real cask ales then a trip next door may be better suited. The bar offers a brilliant range of wine that can easily compete with any of the well-known top dogs.
A word from the chef:
Tasty food inspired from pub classics with lighter options available too!
From its origins as an old stagecoach stop to its time as a favourite of the journalists of the now-defunct Manchester Guardian, The Lower Turk's head has a proud heritage of boozing throughout the centuries in Manchester until its untimely closure....
