We have been here a couple of times recently for lunch and have enjoyed both the food (very good portions) and the ambiance. The staff are pleasant and helpful. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Cosy pub with excellent beer and whiskey selection, plus very good food. Service is also good. Especially recommended is the restaurant area, where there is a fire.

A group of 7 of us booked here for a Christmas meal - based on a recommendation. When I walked in, I was not filled with expectations of a good time. However, my scepticism was misplaced as both the food and service was absolutely impeccable. We've eaten at several places in Manchester for Christmas, and this was by far the... More

The OxNoble pub is a Manchester landmark. A friendly environment, decent food, and a cheery fire in the cast iron fireplace. It draws locals as well as tourists.

Me and a group of friends visited The Ox (the sign says "Oxnoble", but the pictures are right for the place) for lunch before visiting the museum next door, so we were there for a short while during daytime. When I saw they had rooms for rent I wanted to stay a night, but I had to get home for... More

We went here with a group of folks and it was a nice and comfortable atmosphere. The wait staff was very pleasant and the service was excellent as well. They even were kind when it came to collecting a special drink glass from the bar. (They know what I am talking about). :-) The food was very well done and... More

After seeing that this place was a recommendation for Sunday Roasts online, we were looking forward to our dinner at this local pub. Sadly whilst the food was tasty, the service leaves a bitter taste. After multiple errors including losing our order entirely and getting us to reorder 40 minutes later, the manager had just about recovered our faith by... More

Came here for a family meal and the food was lovely, we all had different starters and a roast dinner, the portion sizes were great and the Yorkshire pudding were huge. Would defiantly recommend.

Established in 1804, the pub derives it's name from the Georgian variety of potato, The Oxnoble. Boasting 10 en suite bedrooms, The Oxnoble is a traditional gastro pub/hotel serving excellent, modern English food sourced from the finest local ingredients.

Food is served in the historic pub where you can enjoy a pint of traditional cask ale or whisky from our excellent menu, or choose from our hand-picked wine list.

We are located in the Castlefield area of Manchester opposite the Museum of Science and Industry, within walking distance of the Manchester International Convention Centre and in close proximity to the MEN Area and Old Trafford - Manchester United Football Club and Lancashire Cricket ground
