Located just off Deansgate, the Ape and Apple is a modern, open plan pub ideally positioned in city centre Manchester. Listed in the Good Pub Guide 2019, the Ape and Apple is a fantastic pub for a well-priced drink, sit down meal or night out, attracting a wide range of friendly customers.

The great food menu also caters for a range of tastes – take your pick from pub classics, fresh salads, sharing platters and delicious vegan dishes to of course enjoy with a pint of real ale, cold lager or your choice of spirit or wine.

The Ape and Apple has a distinct pub feel thanks to the wood panelled bar and attractive tiling while upstairs there’s plenty more seating, a separate bar, outside terrace and stage area hosting live music and Manchester’s longest running free comedy club every Wednesday. This large upstairs event space is available for hire, please contact for more details.

There’s always something happening at the Ape and Apple including Salsa every Monday, quiz night on a Tuesday and a murder mystery night the first two Thursdays of the month. With a good number of TVs, this is also a great Manchester pub to watch live sports on Sky and BT.
