The Smithfield Hotel
The Smithfield has also been described by Tandleman in his beer blog, and is indeed a Manchester drinking institution. Tonight it was the landlord's birthday do and the usually drab tables were adorned with crisp white tablecloths. A good mix of 60's music and quality beers ensured that a good night was had by all. Taking a conservative stand at this time of night, I stuck with Roosters White Rose and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, both of which were excellent.
