The Trafford & Hulme branch Pub Of The Year for 2016 is Pi (Altrincham).

Presentation Thursday 23rd June from 8pm. Will also be presenting runners up awards to Blackjack Beers' Jack In The Box and Marble Beer's Marble Beer House with beers from both breweries invading Pi for the evening.

Situated on Shaw’s Road opposite Altrincham Market Hall, it’s not a bar which shouts loudly about itself but has quietly spent the last three years building a well-earned reputation for serving good beer in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. There are no pretentions about this bar - no DJ nights, no TV sports and no desire to be a gastropub or do “street food”. Quite simply while it may not be a traditional pub, it is very much a proper pub – all about enjoying beer in good company.

House ale Tatton Blonde is joined by two guest ales most commonly from RedWillow, Saltaire & First Chop while the fonts serve only quality local and imported beers and lagers – there are no mainstream brands. Where bottle menus may be a common sight at craft beer bars these days, the Pi Beer Bible has been a fixture since the first Pi opened in Chorlton back in 2007.

The simple but effective menu offers a choice of four PieMinster pies usually including two vegetarian options, served with your choice of creamy mash, minty peas and gravy. Service is quick and food is served until 11pm daily.
