Attractive pub. Nice inside too, feels a 90's nicotine refit which retains multiple areas via wood and glass partitions (though of course I do wonder what it may have replaced…). Of particular note is the exquisite bar frontage decor, incorporating tiles and wood carving. Elsewhere there’s chequerboard flooring, wood trim and an air of independence. A rock pub, with some classic standards playing – AC/DC, Zep etc plus the obligatory pool table in a corner room. Pickled eggs and onions at the bar, the only place I saw any in town. Five cask majoring on Marstons and regionals; sadly my Theakston OP was flat – I suspected last one out and indeed they started to replace the barrel a few minutes later; they were good enough to exchange mine without fuss, though they should have really made an effort to notice the slack pump handle when they were pouring. The replacement was OK, though I suspect the entirety of the old barrel didn’t quite make it out (NBSS 2.5). I liked the place but was not 100% convinced about its GBG ’22 status. That said, I’d be happy to try it again in future.

Characterful pub outside Oxford Road station, you can see where different rooms have been broken into one- this must have been a beautiful interior in its day. Decor was all rock music posters from where I was sat. the atmosphere on a Friday afternoon consisted of very noisy chatter and decent music at a reasonable volume. 5 ales from the Heineken approved range (Boltmaker, Landlord, Old Peculier, Plum Porter and Theakston Summit), plus a real cider. Card only but a good pub, worth a visit.

The Salisbury Ale House has long been on my shopping list of pubs to visit in Manchester city centre. It was last in the Good Beer Guide in 2016, until it recently made it in again for the 2022 edition. As this was the last remaining city centre pub for me to visit in the latest GBG, I'd intentionally hung around the Oxford Road area throughout the morning awaiting its midday opening time. However, we arrived shortly after midday to find all of the doors still firmly locked shut. Not a good start.

After visiting the Thirsty Scholar nextdoor, we returned to find a fairly traditional pub with plenty of wood and tiling. However, with the fairly bog standard ale range, I'm surprised it made it back into the GBG. Trooper & Old Peculier are the regular beers, with the guest beer being Razor Back. All are beers that you'd often see wandering through Manchester, with nothing adventurous to tempt me.

Apparently a CAMRA discount is available, but this neither advertised nor offered.

Whilst my Old Peculier was in good condition, I wouldn't go out of my way to pay this pub a return visit. However, it's location next to Oxford Road station may lead me to pop in at some point in the future.
