Gillian (Gillybob) and Vicki (Myfanwe) reserved tables for the VT Manchester Christmas Markets Meet's evening meal at this lovely historic pub restaurant in November 2011.

The Old Wellington has a separate restaurant area to the pub. The Old Wellington has a proud history with being the oldest building in the city centre; the family home of John Byrom (the writer); the first bank; first quay; and was the heart of the cotton industry during the industrial revolution.

I loved the half timbered pub restaurant with its wooden pannelled walls and ceilings and atmosphere.

Favorite Dish: I wanted to have some traditional pub food so I ordered the beef and vintage ale pie which is beef braised in ale in a gravy. The pie was accompanied by seasonal vegetables and potato mash.

The meal was excellent and went down nicely with a pear cider and great company of VTers!

I paid around 15 gbp incluing tip for the meal.

I would return to The Wellington again for another meal in the future.
