The beer is manchester brewed (Sam Smith) and is seriously good and seriously cheap. I think last time i went a pint was about £1.40. Compare that to any other place in manchester and it's less than half price. It sells traditional ... more

As pubs in Manchester go, this one is my favourite. It has quite a history, dating back almost 300 hundred years and surviving stoically through the wars and the infamous IRA bombings of '96, after which it was actually picked up (by one hundred real men with their bare hands) and moved to where it now sits next to the cathedral.

Sinclair's has got quite a bit of history, dating back to 1720 when it was built next to The Old Wellington which is another hundred years or so older than that. They were both raised up 15ft in the 70s when the Arndale was built to avoid having to demolish them and when they survived the IRA bomb in 1996 they were moved piece by piece to their current location on The Shambles, near to the Triangle and the wheel. It's nice to see 2 pubs that are so old still thriving today and their new location means they are still really popular, especially on Fridays and Saturdays when they get rammed, inside and outside, with a mixed crowd. Sinclairs is very ... Read the complete review

The START POINT is the main entrance to the Printworks, on Exchange Square next to Hard Rock Café. Inside on the left is BUDDHA LOUNGE (see Clubs), on the right is Norwegian Blue (new, big, loud and uplifting vodka shot bar, 2am). At the top of the internal street on the right is Lloyds No.1 (a newer concept Wetherspoons on two floors, including music and reasonable prices, 2am). Externally to the right of the Hard Rock Cafe is TIGER TIGER (massive multi level super-bar and club, several bars each with a different theme, from hunting lodge to loft bar to kazbar, loads of action, NB. 25 yrs+ door policy, 2am). Opposite the main entrance of the ... Read the complete review

This is going to be a very controversial opinion amongst my friends who all love Sinclairs Oyster Bar, this is mainly cos its cheap. However i can not stand the place. The few times i have been to Sinclairs i have not enjoyed it, and i refuse to go anymore. I think a good way to give my opinion about Sinclair's would be to do a list of pro's and con's and let you make up your decision whether to visit or not. pro's ( warning this list may be very short) Location: located within walking distance of the metrolink and main bus station in Manchester. Also it is located close to other pubs all of which i think are much better. ... Read the complete review

This pub was affected in the IRA attack in Manchester a few years ago. So the moved the location to the shambles near st Anne’s square, so they had to move it piece by piece. The new location is better in my opinion, as it's near three other pubs but Sinclair’s gets my service. The pub it's self is quite small and always packed, but you have a chose of sitting out side on the benches which on a nice day there is nothing better to do, sit out side with the sun on your shoulders with a pint in your hand. even if the benches are full there are other places to sit around the area, if you know the place you will know what I mean and the staff don't ...
