The Old Wellington Inn Manchester

The Old Wellington Inn and Sinclair's Oyster Bar in Shambles Square, close to Manchester Cathedral, are historic venues in the city.

The Old Wellington Inn survived the Blitz in 1940 and the IRA bomb in 1996 to remain the only surviving Tudor building in the centre of Manchester.

The pub was moved to its present location in the 1970s to make way for the Arndale Centre development.


The two pubs share a large outdoor area with trestle tables, which always seem jam-packed, unless it's raining of course. Not everyone's cup of tea, as it can get a bit rowdy, but definitely worth a try if you are in the city. Pies are a speciality.
