Harden's survey result
With a menu of “great-tasting British classics” (“corned beef hash is my absolute favourite”), this Manchester institution (est 1872) is a place of pilgrimage for those of the city’s trenchermen who like their traditional scoff with no fancy, poncey, modern nonsense. It was a regular haunt of the city’s great artist, LS Lowry; his life-size statue in bronze is by the bar.
“A Best of British experience” – with a decidedly northern slant (black pud’, Barnsley Chop…) – awaits at this family-friendly icon (est. 1872); further incentive to visit is provided by the “eclectic, interesting wine list” from sommelier George Bergier.
A well-known, local-favourite bar-restaurant (est. 1872), whose LS Lowry statue pays tribute to one of its famous former regulars; no fancy south’n nonsense here: black pud’, Lancs Butter Pie, Barnsley Chop…
“Ideal if you want filling up on a cold winter’s day or night”; this “lovely, atmospheric” room “does British classics well and feels like a proper Victorian chop house”... “I would say the corned beef hash is to die for, but given the number of calories, perhaps it literally is!”
