Bishops Baize especially between 12 & 2.50pm on a match day

I like corbieres in the centre, mainly for the jukebox and atmosphere.  But all the other suggestions are good too.

Corbieres is great. I love Kro bar on oxford road might be a bit poncy for your liking.

First of all you are not from the land of the 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 Arms
The Circus Tavern (Portland Street). Don't take the 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 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)

Mason's Arms (Now Slattery's cake shop)
Red Lion or King can't remember
Wheat Sheaf
Bull's Head

 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.

Don't think there is much in the way of drinking holes around the Copthorne, but usually get the odd celeb I believe. Quite good for running around the Quays or along the canal. And not far to nip to worship at either of the Old Traffords. Might be worth a pint in the Bishop Blaize whilst you're there.

Bloody hell you I'm missing Manc too.  Good news is I'll be there for a visit next week.  Will try and hit a couple of pubs... but not before I've spent a small mortgage in Topshop

I used to go to a downstairs bar in the block on Piccadilly opposite what used to be Saturday's - can't remember its name now - anyone know?

So, how was it in Manchester? Where did you get to, and what did you think?
