When Ian Brown famously said, 'Manchester has everything but a beach' he was wrong.

Stokers Arms

Stokers Arms

Cracking pub in Didsbury that delivers an awesome atmosphere for the big events and has plenty going for it when there's no sport on the box. Great pub grub at decent prices as well as great selection of craft beers on tap make this a firm favourite.
Tib St Tavern

Tib St Tavern

Footballing mecca in at the heart of the Northern Quarter. Awesome food, the best bottled and cask beers plus a cracking atmosphere when any major game is taking place. Highly recommended.
Seven Oaks

Seven Oaks

A cracking pub that has its priorities well and truly in order. Sport (lots of it), good beer and decent grub you can eat with your fingers are the key staples of this boozer located just a minute away from the city centre's Piccadilly Gardens central hub. Four screens, gourmet burgers and hot dogs as well as free bloody WiFi make this a real favourite. Get down and check it out.
Trevor Arms (Chorlton-Cum-Hardy)

Trevor Arms (Chorlton-Cum-Hardy)

Awesome community pub in Chorlton, the Trevor is a dream spot to head for a quiet pint or take in the big game.
Shakespeare

Shakespeare

Cracking boozer housed inside a beautiful old building. Expect wood paneling inside, pretty reasonable pints and heaps of screens to watch all the action on, 6 to be precise.
The Directors Box

The Directors Box

The Director's Box is a brilliant addition to Manchester's already cracking array of serious sports bars. This stylish spot has a heap of screens showing everything that Sky and BT have to offer and some awesome retro sporting decor. Expect great grub and the very best beers and craft ales on offer behind the bar.
Shooters Sports Bar

Shooters Sports Bar

Blessed with the ability to show every game going on their never-ending array of screens, Shooters is the perfect place to bed in for a long old day of sport on the box. Plenty of pool, great value drinks and traditional sports bar grub make this a firm favourite.
