The Grafton Arms recently received a refurbishment to transform into a social sweet spot for students, sports fans and those seeking for delicious meals, with quality drinks and live entertainment in Manchester's student central off Oxford Road. We've got a new purpose built stage that has been created for live music events which will run weekly, a super large cinema screen for movie nights complete with popcorn, and an outside drinking and relaxing area - The Yard.
If that's not enough, we'll also have BBQ with gazebos to shield you from the ever predictable Mancunian downpours. There’s also an abundance of board games, and mind puzzles to keep you entertained for hours.
There’s free Wi-Fi and power sockets galore in case the dorm manila walls are failing to inspire, just grab your laptop, and come down. We have coffee and it’s always hot. Plus we’ve got TV’s, BT and Sky showing live sporting events weekly.
The pub has also had a menu revamp offering affordable and delicious tasty meals with breakfast being served all day, a full English is a steal at £5.25, to paninis, and the old school snack time favourite - The Crisp Butty. We've got plenty more comforting pub classics and if you’re missing your home cooked food, well we have that covered too, from Sausage & Mash to Chilli Con Carne.
Lastly not forgetting some amazing weekly drink offers, The Yard Sale boasts £1 half pints starting from 3-7pm every day, double up for free on spirits and £7 bottles of wine.
Please note, we do not take booking reservations, as we like to keep it casual so drop in by for food, drinks and weekly entertainment during our opening hours.
The Grafton Arms caters for all types of functions and parties. For more information, please contact us.
