This pub with rooms is in Manchester's bohemian Northern Quarter. It's named for Abel Heywood, a mayor of Manchester in the 1800s who published a series of penny travel guides for working people.
Its central location means it's well placed for visiting city-centre shopping areas, museums, galleries, bars and restaurants. Manchester Arndale, which is one of the UK's largest shopping centres and is home to around 200 stores and a range of popular eateries, is less than five minutes' walk from the property, while Manchester Arena, which is situated above Manchester Victoria railway station and is one of the largest indoor venues in Europe, is 10 minutes' walk away, making the property a good choice if you're in town for an event or a show.
The Abel Heywood is a Hydes pub -- expect to find a selection of the brewery's locally produced cask ales at the bar, plus an extensive choice of spirits, wines and cocktails. The bar menu includes sandwiches, burgers and sharing boards, as well as pub favourites such as fish and chips.
Rooms are decorated in an eclectic style with design features such as intricate mosaic-style tiles in the bathrooms and Manchester cityscape prints on the walls.
