Sawyers Arms reviews

By G.

A historic pub in the centre of town, it’s a shame that The Sawyer’s Arms isn’t that much to write home about.

The Venue
Sawyer’s Arms is big pub with a red exterior in a prime spot on the corner of Deansgate. It claims to be the oldest pub in the city if you check out the plaque outside. But now it’s lapsed into being a bog-standard sports pub.

There are two TVs and three big plasma screens, which broadcast both Sky and Setanta. It’s a traditional style pub although at least on the inside you get the feeling it’s seen better days and could do with a refurb to bring it a bit up to date.

There’s an upstairs 200-capacity area with a big screen, which is useful to know when there’s a big match on. There are drinks promotions from 4pm-8pm on a Monday to Thursday. But be aware that it’s got a reputation as a Man United bar, so singing blue moon on a match day is not the best idea.

The People
It’s a fairly male-dominated bar, especially during the week and attracts an older clientele - although the younger guys do sometimes bring their girlfriends at weekends.

The Food and Drink
Guinness, Strongbow, John Smith's, Kronenbourg, Stella, Foster's, Carlsberg, are all on draught, while there’s Budvar, Okocim, Holsten Pils and Magner's in bottles. It serves pub grub and there’s a specials’ board. The menu includes baguettes for £2.75, baked potatoes, salads, fish'n'chips (4.75) and they do a Sunday roast for £5.75.

The Last Word
While it’s a pretty standard pub, The Sawyers Arms serves the local male sports fan admirably well.
