The Crown & Anchor is located in the famous Shambles Square area of Manchester, next to Harvey Nichols, M&S and Selfridges. It's perfect for shoppers, workers and city visitors alike there’s something for everyone.

The new menu, offering a variety of pub classics as well as traditional stone baked pizzas has been a hit with local foodies visiting Manchester who have paid compliment to their yummy breakfasts, cakes and huge cups of coffee!  Food is served from 12 pm until 8 pm Monday to Saturdays and on Sundays food from the menu finishes at 7pm. However, you can always grab one of the homemade pizzas right up until close – or take it home with you instead.  All of this can be washed down with our premium drinks menu, including 6 casks, 8 kegs, 26 whiskies, our very own wine cellar, cocktails and craft bottled beers.

Being the best local in Manchester City Centre, the Crown & Anchor’s popular pub quiz on Monday’s has been a hit with students, professionals and everyone who enjoys a bit of trivia whilst meeting new friends and enjoying free pizza. Say goodbye to Monday-blues, the Crown & Anchor is the place to be. Come see for yourself and join in the fun. 

Please note, we do not take booking reservations.
