Had Sunday lunch today in the newly refurbished Bowling Green. Very popular place with most tables taken. Lovely roast beef with all the trimmings - excellent value for money & brilliant service. Highly recommended

Wow !! Darned good compared to the Lloyds and the Horse and Jockey, which are also good but in terms of value for money and quality of food, I would say it is the best in the area !!

We are a warm and welcoming traditional pub that prides itself on providing great quality homemade food, sourced from local suppliers, such as the award winning 'Frost' the butchers of Chorlton. We are a family friendly pub showing all live sports, from the premiership football to the Irish GAA. Our recently refurbished Green Room is now dog friendly, providing a warm atmosphere to sit and have a drink after a long walk in the Chorlton Ees meadows just across the road. For those rare hot summer days, we have a large beer garden to sit and enjoy a cold drink and bowling green for a fun game of bowls with your friends. We have baby changing facilities in both the ladies and the mens toilets and a good sized car park to the rear of the pub. We offer free function room hire for a variety of occasions, from funerals to christenings, with no minimum number of guests required, nothing is too big or too small for us to cater for, just ask ! We look forward to seeing you soon. Mark,Jenny and all the team.
