A splendid wood panelled and fake beam interior (in contrast with the plainer exterior) in this very popular two bar food oriented pub. People were queuing for tables in the separate dining area when I visited on a Sunday afternoon. A subsequent visit on a Thursday afternoon found it empty but still serving excellent real ale. The menu looks good, and good value.

Hand pump
A tiny bar side looking a little tatty in this street corner local. There's also a small, comfortable, well cared for lounge to the rear, with bell pushes for waitress service. The Commercial was a Cain's pub when I visited in 2006. Returning in 2012 I found the brewery connection had gone, but little else had changed apart, perhaps, for a coat of paint. The barmaid advised me that the shortest route from the bar side to the gents is via the street.

The pretty, traditional two-sided interior is very well cared for. The small beer yard has an aviary. When I visited on a Wednesday afternoon the pub was empty. Noted shut in 2014 and derelict more recently.

One compact bar room at the front plus a two room lounge part with waitress bell pushes (not apparently in use) and no counter. The entrance lobby has a nice "Yates's Manchester Ales" mosaic in the floor. The cask John Smith's was undrinkable when I visited in 1999 - no wonder all the regulars were ordering "smoothflow". On subsequent visits I have enjoyed some excellent ale here. I haven't visited the back rooms since 1999.

A nice interior with a wooden floor in one bar plus side and back rooms. The large front windows afford a view of the street and the fort and water beyond. The three hand pumps were not in use when I visited. Closed when I passed in September 2006.

This is the hotel bar in the Queens Royal hotel, not a pub, but it is an excellent bar with friendly staff serving quality real ales. Nicely decorated and well cared for inside with some good plasterwork on the ceiling. The menu looks good.
