Readers may have seen reports in the Manchester Evening News and other press which stated that the historic Sir Ralph Abercromby pub on Bootle Street, Manchester was vacant and being demolished as part of proposed development in the area.
Trafford & Hulme CAMRA is pleased to report that this is not the case and the pub remains open offering its usual excellent range of real ales and quality home cooked food. The pubs' permanent real ales are Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Moorhouses Blond Witch, Sharps' Doom Bar and Timothy Taylors Landlord.
They have recently added Brighside Odin to the range and landlord Michael Christodoulou tells us it is proving popular so is likely to be made permanent. After a two year wait, owners Enterprise Inns finally repaired the pubs faulty sixth handpump last week so a guest ale will shortly be added to the range.
The Sir Ralph shows all live premiership football games, and has a large enclosed beer garden to the side. To keep up to date on events at the pub, follow them on Twitter at @AbercrombyMcr or Facebook www.facebook.com/AbercrombyMcr
With regards to the development, T&H CAMRA understands that the developers have made an offer to owners Enterprise Inns but that the offer has been rejected.
