Sir Ralph Abercromby Inn – 35 Bootle Street, Manchester, M2 5GU map
- Manchester offers lots of traditional pubs like this one; just off the beaten track and hidden away, but if you know where they are then you’ve found yourself a little belter! The Sir Ralph Abercromby sits on Bootle Street next to Manchester city centre’s police station. It can be found four ways: You can walk down either end of Bootle Street (accessed from Deansgate next to 42nd Street Nightclub or from Southmill Street behind Baby Grand nightclub), you can sneak through the little passageway on Peter Street (in between Bedlam and the Army & Navy Recruitment Office) or you could take the less recommended option of getting on the wrong side of the law anywhere within the city centre, getting taken in a van to the Bootle Street cells, and then popping in after they’ve bailed you (make sure you get your shoelaces back first). Named after the British lieutenant-general noted for his services during the Napoleonic Wars (no Manchester connection), they offer cask ales and food. So step away from the binge-drinker full bars on Peter Street and experience a traditional Manchester ale house.
