user reviews of the Wheatsheaf, Manchester

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Definitely a local pub for the residents who live on the estate next to it. No ale was available when i called in, lager drinkers taking centre stage.

Nothing stands out i'm afraid to say, regulars were affable enough and the bottles of Newcastle Brown Ale i drank kept me going for a couple of hours. There are far better establishments in the area, will be surprised if this is still going in years to come.

Just had time for a swift half in this pub before treking out to the northern reaches of Greater Manchester. It's a Marstons pub which had only 2 ales on, despite 4 handpulls. Pedigree & Sweet Chariot were the beers. Music was being played too loudly for my liking. The barmaid was friendly. Many were gathering in a games area to one side of the pub. But we chose the more traditional seating area around the bar. Ok, but nothing special.

Nice old skool sort of pub with all the amenities if you're with a group of friends. Pool table, juke box and one or two decent beers on tap. Nice staff also

Marstons pub. Locals' boozer but not unfriendly. Interesting compared to city centre pubs in London in that you can still get locals' pubs in the city centre (or at least not far) in Manchester. Pedigree was good, I'd return if in the area again.

Locals' pub situated in a semi-modern housing development incongruously situated within the ring road and just a stone's throw from the busy, trendy Northern quarter- though it feels a world away. It's always been off the radar until I read that it had started to serve real ale and that it had a fine tiled interior, which led me through the residential maze to pay a visit. It's not one you'd find a circuit crowd in, very much a locals pub in the city centre. It's large and opened out, roughly an L-shape around a bar. Although the decor is reasonably traditional, the activities are very much modern with DJs, karaoke and the ilk. The regulars seemed to be enjoying it.
I couldn't find any sign of the tiled interior so not sure about the reliability of the source, but there was real ale on- Pedigree and Mansfield Bitter. Whilst not the most inspiring of selections, the Mansfield was a reasonable pint.
This isn't somewhere you're likely to stumble across,and in view of the number of fine establishments nearby, there's no real reason to try and find it. At least they now serve ale so it's an improvement.
