Took my Mum for what sounded like an amazing £5 Friday lunch offer. Gentleman serving us was lovely but even he couldn't make up for the food. My falafel burger was fairly crispy on the outside but completely cold and uncooked to the point of mushy within. Mums 'honey roast gammon' chiabatta was just cold cooked ham with a huge... More

Went for the beef and it was fabulous - keep it simple and do what you do well. Really impressed!! The food was great the service was great, it was busy and bustling but... More

Really good roast dinner and nice selection of beers ok draught. Our order was not take correctly and to say sorry they gave us a free round of drinks plus free cauliflower cheese which was really really nice! Would definitely recommend for Sunday roast, can get pork belly with crackling and all trimmings for £12.95. Vegetarian selection looked good too.... More

Quite simply the best Sunday lunch I've had so far in Manchester. Four of us didn't have to wait too long, despite some silly comments on here. It was about £14 per head for the food, but you got great portions and lots of meat. We did have to ask for the cauliflower cheese, seems to be the norm, are... More

Description
The Blue Pig, an illustrious drinking hole situated right in the heart of Manchester's fabulous Northern Quarter, has gone through a transformation in the autumn of 2014. Carefully crafted cocktails are a speciality, featuring many of the well known (and lesser known) spirits that cram its shelves behind the bar; from fine aged exotic rums & unusual small batch gins to flavour filled vodkas, single malt whiskies, sippers, snifters & digestifs... Craft beers have a big part to play in its revelling repertoire as do some fantastic local real ales. The Pig's signature burgers and roasts are rated as some of the best in Manchester, and sharing boards & specials guarantee there is something for every food lover. Evenings and weekends are hosted by some of Manchester's finest DJs, featuring Northern Quarter favourites So Flute and Lee Majors plus special guests. Keep an eye out for details...
