Corbieres is great. I love Kro bar on oxford road might be a bit poncy for your liking.
Samuel Platt's on Salford Quays.
First of all you are not from the land of the pub...you are going to it!
Assuming you are looking for real ales I would recommend the following, in no particular order, apart from bracketing them in terms of locality:
Near Town Hall:City ArmsThe Circus Tavern (Portland Street). Don't take the cat...no room to swing it.Almost next door, The Old Grey Horse
Near Briton's Protection is The Peveril of the Peak (bright green tiles outside). Over the road is Rain Bar.
Others of note are the Marble Arch (on the way out of the city on Rochdale Road. Jolly Angler and Crown and Kettle..both near Norther Quarter.
Where are you staying? Best runs from in town are along the canal...run towards Old Trafford.
Enjoy, and let us know what you get up to!

When I was a teenager, I once tried a pub crawl from one end of the main road to the other (Bury New Rd at junction 17 to where it splits into Radcliffe New Rd)
JunctionBeehiveMason's Arms (Now Slattery's cake shop)Red Lion or King can't rememberWheat SheafBull's HeadChurch
I think there was another one along there, as well as the Eagle & Child on Higher Lane. This is in about a mile & 1/4. The last time I was in the Bull's Head, me & Mr K won the quiz (gallon of beer), then picked the lucky key in their accumulator game and walked out with £350. We were lucky to escape alive.
LOL H, you mean Primark
