We are now open!
We are really excited to have opened our doors again and to be able to welcome you all back.
We've had to make a few changes and we would welcome your help with a some of them: Whilst we find our feet we are encouraging bookings only inside the pub. Outside tables are not available to book, however a queuing system will be in place at busy times. We have now gone cashless and would ask for contactless payments wherever possible.
For a full list of our changes, please see our 'Keeping everyone safe' page to find out more.
We hope to see you soon.
Welcome to our canal side pub
Although the Wharf is a large building, there are innumerable nooks and crannies so you can find cosy, intimate rooms and alcoves, or more buzzy, dynamic areas if you prefer. Downstairs is more pub service in style, we've got nine cask ales, a decent wine list with something for everyone, sixty gins and over a hundred malts.
Upstairs is more restaurant, with full table service. Our nine chefs develop really cracking menus which change frequently to reflect the seasons. We have a large terrace which is a really popular place to eat in Manchester with stunning views out over the canal basin.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
