Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Town Hall Tavern

Very loud, city-centre pub doing reasonable sing-along business on a Friday night (although probably less than pre-pandemic). Not been to a place like this for more than 18 months, so it was interesting in its own way. There are remnants of the original multi-room interior, although most of the character has been stripped away during various refurbishments. I found two of the four handpumps in use, offering Landlord and Robinson's Dizzy Blonde (£3.85).

Five cask ales on Saturday evening. THT (Town Hall Tipple) by Brightside, Dizzy Blonde, Doom Bar, Hop Pale Ale by Blackedge, and Gold by Beer Brothers.

Pleasant enough pub.

Bogs are downstairs, where the floor is a bit uneven, the doors stiff, and the ceilings low. The gents have those awful waterless urinals which I'm sure are great for the environment but mean there is always someone else's piss left festering at the bottom of them, which is less than pleasant.

Larger inside than it looks from the outside, with a multi-level arrangement giving a selection of drinking areas, though the downstairs seems set up more for eating than drinking. Friendly enough, though the unwatched TVs noisily showing sport can be annoying. So-so TT Landlord.

A stunning looking pub from the outside, l was expecting the interior to be traditional and to have more heritage. Once inside, the layout is modern and is in keeping with the building. The main bar is on the left as you enter up a couple of steps. There was a smaller room to the rear and was set out mainly for dining. The pub is well run and staff were friendly. Three ales on, Wainwright, TT Landlord and Jennings Cumberland.

This pub had had yst another spruce up, in exactly the same style as before. Now has 3 handpumps serving Thwaites Wainwright, Black Sheep Bitter and Taylors Landlord. The Wainwright was a decent pint. Rather more foody now with meals served until 8.

Called in last Friday for a pint as I had been told it had been refurbished. To be honest I couldn't see much difference. You enter up a couple of steps and to the left is a small seating area. To the right up another step or two is another small seating area. At the rear there is a much larger seating area down a few steps. The bar covers most of the left hand side of the pub. Two handpumps on the bar serving Bass & Deuchars which wasn't very inspiring. I had a pint of the Bass which was OK if not really top notch. It's a very average pub for central Manchester and it could be so much better with a bit more effort.

Visited this lovely pub the past weekend to be greated by warm welcoming staff and a friendly atmosphere.

I have heard that it has been taken over by new management and it really shows.

My partner and I enjoyed a fantasic meal; I had the eggs benedict to start which was served with a homemade hollandaise sauce, followed by the homemade steak and ale pie which were both outstanding!

My partner had the bury black pudding which came with a homemade mustard dressing then to follow he had the wild mushroom risotto which was dressed with a white wine, cream and garlic stock, he was silent through out which means he was really enjoying it!!!

It is really worth checking out this quaint little pub.
