The Oxnoble

Cosy pub with a focused food menu, a long whiskey list and rooms to stay in if it all gets too much


Naming your pub after a type of Georgian spud only really makes sense when you realise that this fine establishment has been operating from Potato Wharf since 1804. With such a long history, the place is clearly doing something right.

The interior combines a traditional feel with contemporary standards. Dark wooden floors and panelling, tartan or leather-covered chairs and a real fire all make for a cosy, comforting experience, as do the ten rooms available to stay in.

The selection of wines, whiskeys and ales is excellent and the food is very good indeed. Sensibly, the chefs offer a smaller menu – about five starters and eight mains – so that you can be sure of exemplary and consistent quality. And no, baked spuds are most definitely not on the menu.

Another traditional boozer to put on your next pub crawl list. Beer selection can be hit or miss, with some rotating taps, but the atmosphere is consistently relaxed; it does get busy at weekends but there are plenty of stools and chairs around, plus an outside area for those rare sunny Manchester days. Food is well priced and that proper pub grub you can find yourself craving after certain nights out - the Sunday lunch menu is well worth it.
