  • Dined here last weekend during the 10k run, the place was jam packed but the atmosphere was superb. We arrived, without a booking and a very large party of hungry 16 runners. We had to wait 10 mins while they sorted a table out big enough for us but we had drinks so wasn't too bad. Food was delicious, staff were attentive and friendly. We stayed for a good few hours and it was a great end to a great day in Manchester. Well done Manchester for putting on a great show and well done to The Chop House for amazing hospitality to match - cant wait for next year!
  • A great traditional British pub located outside the town hall. Excellent service from all the staff and enjoy proper British food. The Chop House is in support of their former bar manager Rhys James. Rhys loved a good beer & celebrated life through a pint as such. In memory you can enjoy this beer knowing its going towards the Shine charity in which helped Rhys.
  • Good food and good service. A bit pricey for what you get though. I mainly went for meetings happening upstairs, but downstairs has a great atmosphere.
  • Can I please say a massive thank you to you and all the staff at Albert Square Chop House for the most wonderful Christmas Day. Special mention must go to Josh, who was a complete star! The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. The British Cheese board stole the show. I am sure you have already heard that we took most of it home with us (like tinkers!). It was amazing. The whole day worked really well for us. Thank you. Thank you once again. We had a wonderful day.
  • Tasty food in generous portions. Some lacto vegetarian options despite the meaty branding. No vegan options. Staff helpful.

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
