Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is a once abandoned Victorian watering hole that's been brought back to life. Downstairs is a traditional boozer, while upstairs leans towards restaurant dining, making it one of the best pubs in Manchester city centre for food. That means Sunday roasts and set menus, offered up with beers and a generous selection of whiskey.

The Wharf

Perched just seconds from Bridgewater Canal, The Wharf is a pub that's got a whole lot of character. Head here for cosy corners or quiet nooks filled with fish 'n' chips, buttermilk chicken burgers and a massive selection of cask ales, malts and wines.
