We hadn't planned on coming here but Mike wanted to pop in, so we did. We planned on having a half but on seeing Black Cat Mild that quickly turned to a pint. Other than the Marble Arch, this pub had the best interior of all the pubs I visited in Manchester.

Day Three of my Gtr. Manch. "jolly". 17:00 visit. Late start today as I did a lot the day before! Very quiet. This was the quietest evening in Manchester for my trip this week. Nice to see the old place. 12 times previous a gbg entry in 1978/9/84-6/96/2002/4-8
BeerABVScoreNotes
AllGates - Florida (was called Ostara)3.60GoodVery good, and another winner too!
Tetley - Britons Protection3.70GoodAgain, awiner and very good. A house ale I've not had before and noted the Tetley's name on the clip which, I believe is brewed by Marston's in Burton-on-Trent.
