ALBERT’S BIER PALACE
The thinking man’s selection of booze on offer is nothing short of Holy Grail. Albert’s Schloss is Manchester’s first Tankovna, serving the freshest Pilsner this side of the Danube. Add to this, 10 heritage brews on the taps, Alpine cocktails, homemade Schnapps, an uber wine list and… well you get the picture. A text book Alpine Bier Palace that would make Albert proud.
COOK HAUS & BAKERY
Pretzels, doughnuts and cinnamon knots are freshly made everyday in the Schloss’s very own bakery. Albert’s Cook Haus serves up rustic, simple and fresh Schloss nosh all day long. The fodder is befitting of a country manor with more than a subtle Bavarian vibe. The more authentic fayre has some with incredible names (that really have to be shouted) such as ‘SCHWEINSHAXE’!? (pork knuckle). Keeping things slightly more real are the cracking steaks, heavenly burgers and seasonal specials together with fancy pants Bavarian flatbreads, sausages and snitzel…DAS IST SO DAM GOODE YAH!
Albert’s Schenke (which means a pub or a tavern with a bar) is named after Prince Albert, the Anglo-Bavarian prince and husband of Queen Victoria. It will stock an extensive range of bier, available by the schooner, pint, and in bier flights. The Bier Halle will offer over twenty biers on tap, including Munich and Bohemian pilsners, weiss biers and limited-edition Oktoberfest special editions. If you’re having trouble choosing, you can take a tour of the taps via a range of bier flights.
Our dream is to bring authentic Neapolitan pizza to everyone. For us it’s all about the pizza. Just like in Naples, our dough is made on site every day, takes 24 hours to double ferment and just 60 seconds to cook. It is soft, light and floppy… so fold for strength or tuck in with a knife and fork. Enjoy.
A Grade II listed Wesleyan chapel in Manchester City Centre closed and hidden for over 40 years. The grand and ornate chapel has been restored into a stunning music hall and is set to become one of the most atmospheric music and events venues in the UK.
Liberty Tavern is a melting pot of recipes from colonial dining rooms of the 1890s, contemporary taverns and brasseries of the great metropolitan cities, BBQ pits of the deep south, crab-shacks, food trucks and diners the length and breadth of the USA. All our food is sourced from local food suppliers who have worked with us to produce the tastiest American plates. We thank them.
Our grade II listing building was built in the 1800’s as a manor house.
In 1934 it was renamed ‘The Elephant Hotel’. Over the years the elephant has always played an important role in Woolton Village. In 2014 Mission mars acquired the Elephant and set out to restore it to its position as the heart of the community and gave it a new lease of LOVE.
Over a thousand years ago a band of Norwegian Vikings, named the black pagans, invaded the city of Chester under the command of their leader Ingimund. After a fierce battle, the city of Chester was regained by the Saxons. The Vikings retreated to the Wirral peninsula and were joined by compatriots from across Scandinavia. West Kirby is an adaptation of the Viking ‘vestr kirkjubyr’ which means ‘village with a church’.
This influenced our name ‘the Viking pub & bakehouse’ as a tribute to West Kirby’s rich Viking history.
Trof is a dandyish den of indulgence in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter. Famed for brunching and daily food specials, classic cocktails, rare bourbon and an abundance of beer.
Under the railway tracks on Whitworth Street West is GORILLA, a bar, kitchen, live venue and club space.
The Deaf Institute is an independent fun-loving bar & venue, spread across 3 floors, with 3 bars, a kitchen & a roof terrace.
Housed in a historic Manchester building originally built in 1878 as The Deaf Institute, the building was derelict when we first got our hands on it over a decade ago, and we have refurbished it back to something we hope approaches its original glory.
