The Abel Heywood

The latest addition to Manchester’s N/4 has been open a full week now and so required an inspection by yours truly. Being the new kid on the block and it being Christmas (i.e. amateur drinkers hour) it was rammed to the rafters. The Abel Heywood, named after a famous former Manchester mayor, lies on the corner of Tuner and Red Lion St and was, until the mid-20th century, the Red Lion public house. Hydes brewery have spent a lot of money on it to transform it into a boutique hotel and pub. Downstairs is a large L-shaped room with a mix of booth seating and raised tables. Upstairs has a small drinking area to the left but is aimed squarely at formal dining. There are two handpumps upstairs and six downstairs. The pub opens at 7am for breakfast but drinkers have to wait until 11am before they can get a pint. It’s great to see a new pub open in the N/4 and given its location and if it delivers what it promises; it should do very well
