Real Ale Ray left this review about Sir Ralph Abercromby Inn

A traditional pub tucked away down a side street and has managed to survive numerous threats to make space for another glass boxed tower as one of the customers put it. We visited on a Friday afternoon and the pub was moderately busy. There did seem to be a lot of bar staff on our visit, so it must get very busy on a Friday evening. The interior was mainly cream painted walls, along with lots of dark polished timber work and Dark brown bench seating. Along with a timber floor throughout and a pot shelf above the bar. Six handpumps serving beers from Wainwright, Lees, Mancunion and Brightside Brewing Co. We went for a the Brightside, which was in good shape.

Visited Saturday afternoon. 6 hand pumps at the bar, all of which were on. Two were by JW Lees but the rest were more interesting. I recall there may have been one or two by Brightside, and the one I went for was the Factory Pale Ale by Manchester Brewing. You can't complain that Manchester breweries are not being represented here.

I first came in here a few years ago and I am pretty sure the real ale choice has improved since then. I like this pub, and it has the bonus of an outside area. One to return to.

Long standing inn with a long standing landlord. It's a bit of a strange shaped pub really. As you enter there are two small lounges either side of the door and a further room towards the rear. Several TVs around the place all showing racing, the landlord was watching one of them intently so I suspect he'd had a bet. Four (I think) handpumps on the bar but only two beers available on our Thursday evening visit. The pint of Copper Dragon Golden Pippin I had was very average and that's being kind. After we sat down the landlord placed a small bowl of crisps in front of us. We then noticed that most other tables had been given them as well. A nice touch. It's a friendly little place, but sadly the beer wasn't very good.
