I know it sounds extremely selfish but on the very rare occasions that sort of things breaks out, my first thought is "My pint!" :)

I think I've been in the Church. The one I'm thinking of was literally a Church and had a high cruck-framed roof and was near a trendy veggie restaurant (well, more scruffy than trendy actually - which is better).

When I'm in Manchester now I go to the Lass O'Gowrie near the BBC - that's a nice pub.


Hello Looby. You haven't been in the Church on Stockport Road, cos it's not shaped like a church. It's shaped like a pub. Maybe you've been to the Queen of Hearts at Fallowfield, or the Jabez Clegg by the universities? They are both big old church halls converted into student drinking emporiums. They've possibly got cruck-framed roofs but I don't know what they would be when they were at home. So you win a special prize for putting a word in my comments that I don't understand. (it's a one-off special prize- don't all go trying it....)

And the special prize is.. a story about a bloke who works on the trains, just like you. Well he's not just like you- I'm sure you are the very picture of cheeriness and helpfulness. But I just hope the bloke in Levenshulme ticket office isn't a mate of yours....


Think u will find the packhorse is full of criminal looking types,since the Union has been taken over by the levenshulme pub company it has become a decent pub. Maybe u should give it another try?


Maybe I will Mary, maybe I will.... one or two people have said the Union is OK nowadays, they have live music in there quite a lot now don't they??

Mongs! The Horseshoe is shite


they are ALL shite - but the majority of people around leve are lovely!!! (apart from the few arseholes we ALL know!!!)
