These guys are famous in Glasgow for delivering on two things: great foods and some of the best steak around. So luckily, Manchester’s steak and ale scene is in good hands, as they select the top 1% of beef for their dishes, which makes it all the better to wash down with a premium pint.

Sure, beer’s in the name, but we’re after steak and ale in Manchester – not pork and ale. Luckily, these guys not only deliver on a wide range of tasty bevvies, but also grilled meats too, meaning you can get a chunk of steak washed down by the hoppy stuff.

Black Angus New York strip steaks are the cut of choice at this plush venue. mAs part of the Malmaison hotel group, quality and great service are at the forefront of dining in this restaurant. The focus at the bar is predominantly wine and champagne, but give the guys a little nudge and they'll break out all their knowledge of the beers and ales they have in stock.

Grill on the Alley

Choose from ribeye, sirloin or fillet steak and tuck in to a sumptuous side of buttered mash, or go for a hearty jacket potato or chips. Simple and understated, the emphasis here is purely on quality. The ales are selected for being the Best of British pickings; Camden Town Gentleman's Wit started off as an experimental ale but was so popular it became a fabulous brand!

Red's True Barbecue

Let there be meat! That's what the Good Book says according to these crazy carnivores. Burgers, barbeque plates and ribs fill this menu to the brim with juicy meat, but what we're most enamored with is their 12oz ribeye steak. Served with two regular or one Divine Side (we'd go for the sweet potato fries), this giant feast will set you back £22.95. Beers and lagers are available bottled or on tap, with the strongest being the 7.1% IPA Snake Dog.

The crew here at 24 Bar and Grill take no prisoners. Succulent 8-10oz steaks are served with triple cooked beef and dripping fried chips. If you couldn't decide between a steak and a burger, ground steak has been fashioned into their astonishing steak burger. Seafood lovers can dive into their take on a surf and turf meal whilst the mixed grill boasts a ribeye steak, lamb rump, chicken, sausage and beef. Craft beers and ales can be found in bottles or on tap, there is a house selection but ask at the bar for the real juicy pickings.
