Probably a former estate pub, not especially interesting to the casual observer, but possessing a certain nostalgia value for me and so I'm sorry to see it fall on hard times. While a student in Manchester living in a nearby hall of residence, Cornbrook House, a few of us made this pub a reasonably regular haunt. We would often play darts. This was in 1987/88 and people would have you believe that in the bad old days of Hulme, before the crescents were pulled down, it wouldn't have been possible for a group of students to enter a locals' pub like this and emerge with their limbs intact. However, there was never a sniff of trouble.
