About our venue

Sawyers Arms is a city centre pub steeped in history, located on Deansgate - the busiest road in the city. The Sawyers has the only unbroken consecutive licence to trade in the city dating back to 1734. Since our refurbishment and rebrand in Winter 2014 we reopening having been transformed into a Nicholson's pub. You'd be hard pushed to find a finer real ale pub in Manchester. In fact, we believe The Sawyer's Arms is unrivalled in its choice of quality cask-conditioned beer and carefully compiled menu of British pub dishes. We have an upstairs which is our restaurant area which is also available for private hire. Our clientele are a great mix of shoppers, workers and business people during the day when they come to enjoy lunch or a refreshing drink with friend and colleagues. Come and visit our friendly pub soon, the team will make you very welcome.
