Highly recommend the fish pie, lovely clean venue & good service. Been here a few times, ask for a seat away from the family area (if you aren't coming with kids) it's quieter!......

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.

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
