Our son attends a school nearby so we are here all the time. Feels like a family owned place, service is fantastic and food is consistently great. Feels like an old style pub from England ...great beer selection good drinks friendless atmosphere

Manchester Arms looks like your typical English pub. Great atmosphere and ambiance with a nice bar. Our waitress was very helpful and informed. My friends got the fish and chips while I had the bangers and mash. Both were very good.

Wasn't at all impressed with their "signature" Pork Chop. Impressive size, but doesn't have an impressive taste. Ribeye was only slightly better. Beer selection is non-exsistant. Waited at an empty hostess stand for almost 10 minutes, before anyone even recognized I was there. Set a table for us, upstairs, but decided to make us wait downstairs until a table was... More

3 visits. While on business over a one month period. 1st - voluntarily, an off night? 2nd - could it be that bad, yep. 3rd - because that was what the group wanted -- confirmed 2nd visits review. Small and personalized beer selection - not what's on the web site - so if you don't like the owners taste -... More

Loved the open air setting outdoors. Friendly and fast service. Menu items are authentically British, (although I didn't taste them all). I had the fish and chips. Not the standard British batter I expected, but not bad either. Great place to await a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson. Disappointed there was no wi-fi.

Excellent dinners, great location, awesome pub. I always recommend M/A to anyone asking about a great place to go for dinner. Here's one complaint....I was in town for flight training last week. I was really looking forward to going to M/A. I could only go on Saturday or Sunday. According to their website, they are open 4pm to 10pm on... More

...and this one ranks right up there. Traditional decor and some British fare on the menu. A co-worker and I had the fish and chips, and although not the traditional batter, it was very good and served hot. Nice beer garden for those great Atlanta days, like we had today. Friendly staff.

The night we visited, the restaurant was full of well-fed middle management types in casual wear (I assume on expense accounts) mainly eating pork chops the size of their heads. The men outnumber the women 10 to 1. it was a very jovial atmosphere. the meat here is first smoke and then brined and then roasted/grilled. Really spectacular. We were... More

Loud, boisterous, crowded, looks like a pub because it is! This is the closest to I real UK pub I have been in since my last visit to London. Actually reminds me of a smaller version of a pub in the Garden City of Letchworth in Hertfordshire. Unfortunately I don't think the Manchester serves scrumpy ( maybe if you ask... More

Picked a colleague up from the airport and chose this place nearby due to positive TA reviews. The place was packed at 5:30 on a Thursday night, always a good sign. Nice beer selection including some local craft beers. Small but nice menu, a mix of pub favorites and other various fare. Both my friend and I got specials for... More
