Any takers? I did some real ale pubs in the city centre the other week; The Salisbury, Peveril of the Peak and The Briton's Protection.
Locals will no doubt be able to show me others.

Off Oxford Street, near the Cornerhouse cinema.
I'm not that familiar with the city so suggestions for a good meeting place welcome. The Briton's Protection is handy for Deansgate tram station.

That's the feller. Set back behind another boozer.
The Briton's Protection it is then. I'm idle at the moment so what time suits those earning a crust?

Suppose he probably will. Unless he has some hot date. I'm sure he'll spot this thread sooner or later.

Just to test the water....but do most of you guys bring your partners or go on your own?


I guess that depends on whether we end up in Long Legs or not :tongue

I'll have to invite mine or else face the wrath, which is fair enough since I'm away most of the week.
Whether or not she comes is up to her.

Just had a quick word with 'the one who must be obeyed' and I'll put us down as a provisional, subject to getting a babysitter sorted as *apparently* it's frowned upon now-a-days to leave 2 year old kids to fend for themselves for an evening :tongue

More to the point was Wilmslow there and did he crash anyone's phone when they took a picture?
