[@]Great Pub Food
The resurgence in quality British Pub Food is partly due to the introduction of the smoking ban, making the atmosphere breathable and you can see the staff behind the counter, not always recommended...
The spaces where the food is served are friendly and appealing and the food can often rival restaurant standard. Certainly there are chefs in pubs producing some excellent fare.
Manchester has a body of such pubs where the food is well presented and is great value. In this list you will find mammoth burgers, fabulous tasting pies and chunky cuts of meat served with fresh vegetables.
And you enjoy an good pint while waiting for your food to arrive. What's not to love?
Pie & Ale
The pies are the main attraction with pastry, which the (friendly, helpful) staff roll out in the open, is flawlessly cooked: the right combination of butter, crisp and crumb all the way round
Recommended: Tarka Dhal
The Ox Noble
Food is served in the historic pub where you can enjoy a pint of traditional cask ale or whisky from the excellent menu, or choose from a hand-picked wine list
Recommended: Steak and Ale Pie
Offering innumerable nooks and crannies so you can find cosy, intimate rooms and alcoves, or more buzzy, dynamic areas if you prefer. It has a large garden, pub space and a restaurant upstairs
Recommended: Charcuterie board
A dandyish den of opulence. The kind of place where you can hang out day or night, access the wifi with a big slice of cake and a frothy coffee, munch on breakfasts and burgers, sandwiches and salads
Recommended: The good old Sunday Roast
