I used to love this place! My girlfiends and I used to frequent it often whilst living in halls at Manchester uni. In those days it was quite cheap and we used to get drunk on southern comfort and lemonade and vodka and lime. We wasted many afternoons like this!
Would love to visit this place again if I'm ever in the area.

pitty about that - i used to live on the same road and spent many an early morning in this dodgy old boozer at the dark end of some mental bender weekenders.

The Whitworth has had a bit of makeover, gone are the dingy carpets and 25 yr old seating.The wholeplace has been spruced up new hardwood flooring and seating a whole new relaxed style.The emphasis is now not only on serving alcohol but giving an all round experience,open at 8 am serving breakfast brunch and fairtrade coffee and tea, with ciabbatta smoothies and a weekly speciality cocktail. The exterior boasts a comfortable terrace perfect for the odd pitcher of Pimms with a new gable terraced area overlooking the park coming shortly add to this free wifi and a new late license things have changed

The Whitworth has now been open for a solid 2 years. A great pub with a lot to offer. Previously a Marstons' boozer but now, to the best of my knowledge, under no brewery management. The Whitworth usually has two ales on both of which are Hydes, which makes sense due to its proximity to the brewery but not under their management due to the absence of any brewery branding. The beers are usually a standard Hydes Original/ Jekyll's Gold and a Hydes Festival Beer/ Guest (e.g. Spin Doctor, Mumbo Jumbo, Sacre Bleu etc).

This very pleasant pub opposite Whitworth Park boasts two spacious rooms with a connected beer garden (where smoking is permitted). There are obvious efforts to rejuvinate the pub with the weekly holding of a quiz night (Tuesday 9.30-10.30) which is brief, relaxed and great fun) with the first prize being alcohol.

Well worth a look in if in the area, especially on Tuesday night for the quiz, as it is relaxed with a good mixed crowd of locals and students and well kept ale. Their is also a good range of lagers, Heineken, Becks, Stella, Kronenberg etc
