We stayed at this pub so we could go to the Opera House - the price was excellent compared to major chains of hotels - the pub is full of character with a fantastic range of beers including a number of real cask ales. The place was buzzing all afternoon with people eating - the menu caters for all tastes...

Considering the price paid I was very impressed, I was nervous as it was very cheap however I was very pleasantly surprised. Very nice lady showed us to our room which was much larger than expected, nice firm bed, good hot poweful shower and lots of towels.

Booked through trip advisor. Received an email from trip advisor who was merely the messengers stating the hotel was unable to honor our dates so had to cancel the booking! We have already booked our train tickets. Now left looking for a hotel last minute which as you can imagine is now extremely expensive and we are going to have...

We stopped in this pub for lunch before visiting MOSI. Very mixed experience, and would not go again due to the poor service. The place was empty when we arrived, and we placed orders for drinks, and then decided to eat there; a mixed platter (my father does no believe me when I say that pickled gherkins just sound so...

There we were wandering around the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester when Dan said ‘I fancy a sandwich’. The Museum café was shut (for refurbishment, I think) and we were all peckish. So we looked around for somewhere to eat. What we found was a gem – ‘The Oxnoble’ at Potato Wharf. A pub. With food. But what...

My wife and I stayed at the Ox Noble for just the one night, chosen mainly because it was just down the street from the venue of my daughter's 40th. birthday party at the Barca. However I was very impressed with this pub, although it's quite old and of the traditional variety, the bedrooms were extremely comfortable and spacious and...

This was always our fave place in Manchester for a huge delicious Sunday roast. Today was SO disappointing! Instead of 1 great big yorkshire Pudding, it was 2 small, hard (frozen. It homemade) yorkshires. Less meat than normal. No longer lamb on the menu. The veg was dreadful. Just one big mix of veg - included onions and peppers and...

Lovely lady Sarah took my booking. My room was ready on my arrival - very clean with coffee making facilities. Basic but clean. My only issue is despite me being resident we couldn't get a drink after midnight so we went 10 metres down the road to a pub that was happy to serve us a Aston drink

This pub is located in the Castlefield area of Manchester, opposite the Science & Industry Museum... The Ox dates back to the early 1800s and may not look much from the outside but once you step inside you'll be amazed by modern decor and great food & drinks... This historic pub offers a selection of good real ales on handpumps,...
