The Bay Horse Tavern, 35-37 Thomas St, Manchester, M4 1NA – Visit Now

The Bay Horse Tavern is a wonderful Victorian-style pub on Thomas Street in the Northern Quarter, with everything you need to eat, drink and socialise. Voted the ‘Best Pub in Greater Manchester’ in 2018,  you can expect top-quality pub grub and an extensive selection of wines, spirits and locally produced beers. It’s a traditional pub, complete with contemporary twists throughout, making it the Northern Quarter’s go-to destination for drinkers and diners looking for a modern take on the humble local boozer.

They have their very own gin, the Bay Horse Tavern x Portobello Small Batch Gin

Gin-lovers can check out the venue’s very own gin, Bay Horse Tavern x Portobello Small Batch Gin, best sipped in the newly-opened gin garden. They’ve teamed up with Portobello Road Gin to create a bespoke gin using fresh bay leaves (picked from owner Jobe’s back garden, no less) to add a warming herbal note, while dried hay adds texture and a smart sweetness to the finish.

Must-attend events include a quiz night every Tuesday, with an open mic on Thursdays, hosted by Manchester’s very own country singer-songwriter Izzie Walsh.
