Popped in here on a Saturday evening and it was very busy - lots of large tv screens showing sport - boxing when we were there - all in all a nice lively pub with a good selection of beer and one for sports fans.

Superb location on the Green, off the road in a little Haven of social calm. Dogs and all sundries are welcome. The eclectic variety of customers and staff alike, combined with hearty food and welcoming smiles is refreshing. I like it here

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.
