Mary & Archie, 200 Burton Rd, Manchester, M20 2LW – Visit Now
The original Mary & Archie on Burton Road in Didsbury made a welcome return earlier this year. In its place briefly was Shak, a tiki-themed bar which was, well, a tiki-themed bar, it was fine, but it’s not a place most people are going to visit on a regular basis, is it?
Anyway, Mary & Archie is back and we’re already calling it our favorite bar on Burton Road all over again. It’s not the biggest on the strip but it’s cosy and genuinely feels like it has some heart and soul.
The weekday happy hour runs at a generous three hours from 4-7pm which gets you a pint of Flensburger for £3 or a bottle of wine for £12. Even those without an appetite for destruction might find their weekday evenings a little hazier than intended. There’s a burger and beer deal on Monday’s too and brunch is served until 4pm every day.

The food here, like it’s sister branch in Chorlton, comes in a good variety which should suit pretty much anyone. There’s prime steak burgers for those who absolutely, positively need their meat turned up to eleven and good choices for veggies and vegans too. It’s great value for money with your average meal here under a tenner. We’re especially big fans of the breakfast and it’s good to see the vegan option becoming standard across Manchester.
As the weather gets warmer and Burton Road busier, we look forward to sinking a few pints on Flens outside Mary & Archie once again.
