Nice and fleshy :) we then moved on to the Sunday beef roast, with delicious potatoes, and freshly cooked veggies, and a great burger! To... More

My wife and I and two friends had lunch here recently. The decor and furnishings are those of a Victorian era pub. However, the quality of the food, service and real ales is very much up-to-date - first class real ales, traditional English fare with some modern twists and friendly professional service. To some extent this was a going back... More

Went to visit a friend last night with the full ingestion of going for a curry. Manchester was packed and we would have had an hours wait at the curry house. My friend suggested we went to Thomas's Chop House and what a great decision that was. We had the beef dripping and bread to start which I could quite... More

Iconic, narrow bar in a great, unchanged-over-time, tiled interior. The Black Sheep beer I had was good.

We were greeted with a friendly face, shown to our table and given the menus and drinks orders taken.. Bread n dripping.. oh my God.. took me back to visits to my... More

Love the charm & as always, the staff are very warm & pleasant. Today we thought we would try the food, having seen the positive reviews & noticed the regular flow of custoners who seem to go just for the food. What a disappointment - nothing really more than over priced pub food, & our fish, which was not very... More

Came here for a quick evening meal after work. Wow! It wasn't packed but the courteous, friendly staff were great. Chicken Caesar to start followed by stunning Corned Beef Hash that has to be tried to be believed. I've been here so many times drinking but never for a meal... it definitely won't be my last. Miss this wonderful place... More
