The Church Inn, Manchester

What a transformation from what it was! Now it wouldn't look out of place in the middle of theatre-land, it's had a classy revamp! Seems to attract students due to it's location, but the prices for beer/lager aren't exactly cheap, but prices for food are more reasonable, and large servings. You won't go away hungry! Plus points - good lagers, no distracting TV, warm real wood fire in winter, outside secluded "garden", good food, newspapers and mags available to read.

Bad points - (to me) the ale isn't to my tastes (think it's Lees) and there are speakers in all corners blaring out music continuously when there's an option to have a "quiet" corner. Lack of choice of real ales + the music drops the score from a 10 to an 8. But still becoming a fave haunt of mine.

Pity all the scores are averaged from the *old* days - this is now completely different from before.

The Fox Inn, New Mills

Lovely quiet pub tucked away in the countryside, not easy to find (yay!!) and a steep walk up the bridleway from the station.
Small selection of beers, but each one was fine.
Don't be put off by the "Sky Sports" sign, most of the pub is unnaffected by the TV!
Loking forward to visiting again on a warm summer's day, if we get one this year.
