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, with several cask ales on the bar, a decent wine list with something for everyone, forty gins and over a fifty malts.

Upstairs is more restaurant, with full table service. Our 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.
