  1. The Crown & Anchor has had a recent refurb and paint job. The result is a stunning pub that oozies Mancunian pride from every angle.

    First of all there’s the large collection of Joseph Holts draft and bottle beers – the ‘Manchester Ale’, a brown ale, is highly recommended and comes in a bottle beautifully decorated with a Lowryesque painting. Like all other Holts ales, a donation is made to Christies for every sale too.

    The pub is split into 4 rooms consisting of a restaurant, 2 bars and a raised area with black and white photographs of Manchester decorating the wall. Famous quotes about the city don each one, including one from Charles Dickens stating his love for Joey Holts ale’s.

    The video jukebox is crammed with Mancunian gems; New Order’s ‘True Faith’ and Happy Mondays ‘Wrote For Luck’ getting airings during our brief visit.

    The MEN Arena is just next door as is Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Marks & Spencer, The Triangle, The Arndale and The Royal Exchange. All in all, it’s the ideal place to enjoy a real Mancunian pint!

    I visit this pub at least 3 times a month and really look forward to it , my mum and i were feeling a bit fed up due to some family bad luck and as we always visit the catherdral to light candles and give a donation we were looking for somewhere different to eat and now we have found you we never eat anywhere else.We so look forward to our treat and we find the atmosphere so lovely and the staff so friendly.I have always worked in the service industry ..i was a holiday rep for many years and also worked as cabin crew so i know good service.

    Thanks guys my mum and i had a lovely lunch yesterday and will be back next week.

    Top Joey Holts pub with cheap beer and some good grub also. Cheap and cheerful bar food but it is nice! Good bit of a beer garden and three other good bars near by on the square.
