Cask, 29 Liverpool Road, Manchester, M3 4NQ
Cask is a well-loved pub on Liverpool Road in Manchester, it is one of the most laid back pubs in town – one, it should be noted, with an excellent selection of continental beers. If you are after a Belgium beer with enough volume to need a council permit, look no further.
The beer garden isn’t fancy, but it does the job, with lots of seating packed in. It’s in Castlefield, but without the canal-side vista.
Cask is right next to a chippy, too, which means it can be a wee bit smelly out there. But on the plus side, you don’t have far to go if you get hungry, and they let you bring your chips in the pub!
