We are a friendly bar that welcomes students and locals alike. We are the best priced bar in Manchester with cocktails from £2 and pints from £2.15. With one of the best outdoor spaces in the area which is partly covered so can be used all year round. We show all the football as well as have a great atmosphere on a night time where you choose the music from our jukebox.

We wanted to have some traditional English breakfast and I have to say that this was a massive disappointment- the sausages weren't exactly sausages: they had a weird mushy consistency and I was quite afraid of eating them. The eggs were not fresh and the...More

Visited here a few times over the last few years. During my last experience, it was underwhelming. The staff are disinterested and cold. The beer is cheap. The jukebox is ridiculous. Just someone who came in at 6pm and put on his whole metal back...More

The Courtyard is a quality pub, it's ideal for students. All the cocktails are either £2 or £3 or a pitcher for £9, you can't beat it! I haven't tried the food but it looks solid. The staff are friendly but my only criticism is...More
