Town Hall Tavern Manchester
Town Hall Tavern Manchester was the venue for Pete Nugent’s 75th birthday party and right good do it turned out to be. The Town Hall Tavern Manchester is a very old established pub on Tib Lane just off Cross St near to Albert Square. The pub is run by the Pete’s son Nick, who has had a wealth of experience in the hospitality business and I think he may have even worked as a barman here in his younger days. The pub provides superb ales and great local dishes, perfect for a business lunch or a nice place to relax after some heavy shopping. Nick has recently taken over the running of the pub and it looks like Manchester has one of it’s most famous pubs back up and running with a talented chef and fantastic bar staff to help him.
The entertainment was provided by a jazz sextet The Tame Valley Stompers and went down a bomb. Although jazz is not everyone’s cup of tea these guys keep you entertained with some wonderfully interpreted music. The Jungle Book’s ‘King of the Swingers’ was my particular favourite of the day followed by a memorable adaptation of ‘All of Me’.
There was nice mix of old and young people with all styles of fashion (no laughing at the band’s waistcoats) to bring a colourful and warm atmosphere to the Town Hall Tavern. The chef laid on a superb buffet with some of the tastiest rare beef I have had in years. All this was washed down with some fine cask ales and even a few of the international bottles of lager for refreshment!
Well I will post a few shots of the party showing the splendid ambience of the pub and hope that you will visit it yourself to try out the experience. All this was made possible by Pete’s wonderful family and friends along with the fantastic host of the Town Hall Tavern Manchester.
