As the months grow colder, people are looking for warm, cosy pubs to have a nice pint in Manchester. According to Tripadvisor, these are five of the best.

It’s getting cold outside in Manchester, as we grow closer to the winter months. Why not treat yourself to a sumptuous pint of beer in one of Manchester’s cosiest pubs?

And what better way to get in the festive spirit than with a glass of mulled wine or hot toddy in hand, escaping the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. It helps that Manchester is home to plenty of welcoming drinking holes to disappear into when the crowds become too much.

We’ll be taking a look at all pubs in Manchester with warm interiors and putting the very best on this list. If a pub has a roaring log fire, that’s a bonus!

We won’t include any pubs or bars with a Tripadvisor rating lower than 4/5. We’ll also be discarding anywhere that has fewer than ten Tripadvisor reviews. We will be including the rating that the pubs received on Tripadvisor, where you can find them and we’ll also be showing you a couple of things that people said about each pub.

Manchester isn’t known for its warm weather - so these warm pubs may be worth visiting all year round! Without any further ado, let’s get into it - here’s five of the cosiest pubs and bars in Manchester.
