With many pubs in Manchester closed on New Year's Day, we were pleased to find the Sir Ralph Abercromby open. Although with only one other customer and the barman, it was fairly dead. BT Sport football matches were showing on several TVs. The interior was fairly dark, with a large bar in the middle. Timothy Taylor Landlord is the regular ale. The 5 guests were Sharp's Doom Bar, Moorhouse's White Witch, Stockport Snow Angel & West Coast IPA & Brightside Polaris Express. Two of the ales were being sold at £3 per pint. But surprisingly, it was the full price White Witch that tasted past its best. Tucked away in a back street, at least it was open.

Sir Ralph Abercromby KB ((7 October 1734 – 28 March 1801) was a Scottish soldier and politician. He rose to the rank of lieutenant-general in the British Army, was noted for his services during the Napoleonic Wars, and served as Commander-in-Chief, Ireland. Murdering Bastard.

This is a pub I have always admired just because of how close it is to the police station. It's got a large horseshoe shaped bar, it was quite busy when we came in here (although it was on a Friday at half 6). The ale is quite well kept but at almost ridiculous prices, I was going to be charged £7.60 for two pints of Phoenix Hopsack (a 3.8 percent beer), it was off so I was able to get two pints of the Trooper Red n Black porter by Robinsons (which, even though was 3 percent stronger than the Hopsack was actually selling at a cheaper price at 3.50 for a pint). It seems like this place is in trouble of being shut down, but I don't think the prices help it's push to bring in more punters.

A pleasant all rounder style of pub with large screens for sport, food, beer garden & smart use of interior space. I had a pint of Landlord (3.50) which was very good and the bar people were friendly & efficient. The customers were a mixture of late lunchers, early post workers & solo sippers. That would be me & another bloke watching the cricket.

Have been here twice in recent memory, the most recent visit being last night. It was pretty busy and standing room only. Had a pint of the Copper Dragon Golden Pippin which was pleasant. Seemed to be a fair mix of people in, from a table of studenty types playing a game on a mobile phone to a middle aged chap in nylon jogging pants and flip-flops. Staff seemed busy but no issue with service at the bar.
