REPUTED to be the oldest pub in Manchester, the Sawyer’s Arms dates back to 1730 and is just a short stroll from the Arndale Centre, The Lowry and Manchester Opera House.
This Grade 2-listed building is a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food.
The Sawyer’s Arms is part of the Nicholson’s brand of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere and operated by pub and restaurant giants Mitchells & Butlers.
The external extravagance of the building in Deansgate hints at a history of mosaic, mahogany, tile and etched glass, numerous rooms and pub games.
Now, artworks are highlighted by tasteful lighting, quirky lamps and feature pendants. Throughout the pub, there are antique tiles, cut-glass mirrors, dark ornate Victorian bar counters, velvet curtains with gold tassels and Chesterfield sofas.
