Welcome to The Rain Bar
Located on Great Bridgewater Street, we serve a selection of JW Lees cask ales including Bitter and MPA, as well as our refreshing Manchester Craft Lager; perfect for enjoying while catching up with friends in the city centre. Our back bar is filled with premium spirits and our cellar is full of quality wines; there’s something to suit all tastes, whilst our attentive team ensures you receive a warm welcome whatever the weather. We serve traditional pub grub and mouth-watering specials, all day every day. Our new Autumn menu is filled with hearty pub food favourites and fresh dishes, perfect for the season. Be sure to arrive early when the sun is out as our beer garden overlooks the Bridgewater canal, voted the Best Outdoor Terrace by Manchester Confidential, for summer 2016 and is the ideal place to relax with a pint.

I have been here a few times for lunch. Bar staff always lovely. Food always arrives fast and always good. Never had any reason for complaints here!
Was my first visit with a group of friends from work. Really nice bar large enough for lots of people but cosy as well. Different seating areas and levels. Bar staff friendly. Had a good selection of food. Had a veggie wrap with chips and coleslaw it was only £6 and was really fresh and tasty.Will definitely return here when in Manchester.
It was my first visit here. Lovely welcome to me and my 2 dogs. A cold wet afternoon in Manchester, the place was lovely and warm spotless and so friendly. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We will certainly return, especially when it’ll be nice enough to sit on the lovely terrace on the canal side.
