Welcome to The Rain Bar

Having been recently refurbished, the Rain Bar is looking the best it’s ever been. The central bar at the heart of our pub is stacked with award-winning cask ales, lagers and an array of wines & spirits from around the world. We also serve a number of cocktails and non-alcoholic options – if you have a drink in mind, chances are, we have it.

The Rain Bar makes for the perfect place to grab a bite to eat and enjoy a couple of beers or a glass of wine before heading off out into Manchester. Our menus are stacked full of choices, with pub favourites such as fish & chips and not forgetting our legendary Brewery Tower Burger.

Beer Garden

Come and enjoy the best beer garden in Manchester City Centre. Sit alongside The Bridgewater Canal with plenty of space outside including heaters and covered tables. Sip a well deserved after-work pint, spend the afternoon in the sun with friends, or enjoy a few pints while the sun goes down before heading out with our new menus now available for alfresco dining.

OUR MENUS

Our brand-new menu has landed and we’re serving up some hearty new dishes for you to come and try like our delicious griddled Cajun chicken breast, BBQ corn ribs, baby roasties with sour cream & chives and coleslaw.

Let’s not forget about our unbeatable Sunday roast too with bottomless Yorkshire puddings and unlimited gravy. We think we serve the best Sunday roast in the area, but there’s only one way for you to find out…

BEST BEER GARDEN
IN MANCHESTER CITY CENTRE

When the sun decides to show its face, join us for a Manchester Craft Lager out on the terrace and enjoy your pint in the best beer garden in Manchester, just off Bridgewater Street looking onto the canal. Our beer garden ticks all the boxes and with its outdoor heaters and it is the perfect place to wind down after a day at the office.
