One of the most pocket-friendly pubs of Manchester, Turing Tap is neatly positioned in the heart of the city's student hubbub. If you're in the area and looking to put your feet up, mosey on inside for hearty meals, affordable pints and plenty of live sport on the big screens.

Set in leafy surrounds in the laidback neighbourhood of West Didsbury, The Woodstock Arms is surely one of the best pubs in Manchester with outdoor seating. And for refreshments?
