Lower Turks Head

36 Shudehill, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 1EZ

Dating back to 1745, the Lower Turks Head is a unique pub rich in history, heritage and community spirit. The pub is packed full of distinctive features, including three solid wood carved bars, checkerboard flooring, panelled walls, pew seating, Manchester artwork and locally brewed beer.

With an historic tile façade on the outside, the Lower Turks Head is deceptively deep and roomy inside. There are plenty of nooks and crannies, as well as larger areas, to gather with friends and family.

On the ground floor there are two bars, plus a smaller cubbyhole wooden bar upstairs, all serving a range of Joseph Holt beers, cask ales and lagers. In total there are 30 keg taps and 12 cask pumps serving Joseph Holt Bitter, IPA, Chorlton Pale Ale, Two Hoots and Mild. With the pub less than a mile from our brewery, you can guarantee the beer will be in top condition!

On the first floor you’ll find a heated outdoor terrace area with local, hand painted artwork paying homage to the pub’s Northern Soul history, plus a pub-dedicated poem on the wall penned by The Thirsty Poet.

If you’re visiting Manchester, stay over with us too. There are 4 renovated en-suite bedrooms at the Lower Turks Head hotel accessible via a separate entrance. You can book your stay directly using the booking app below
