Help the Britons reopen post covid19

We are one of Manchesters' oldest pubs. We have stood proud in our fair city for over 200 years serving anybody who comes through our doors with a smile  offering more than 300 whiskies and a variety of  local cask and draught. 

Unfortunately  given the current pandemic like many others we are now in very uncertain  times and as such may not be able to reopen our doors without help from those we have welcomed over the years. 

We have been integral throughout the city in both heritage with our links to the Peterloo Massacre  and music. Being a flagship for many artists' career early gigs including Badly drawn Boy. The courteeners and George Ezra. 

We are in desperate need of help from the community to ensure we can re open. As we have had  been unable to rely on our working partners such as Star pubs owned by Heineken who have offered little to no support and unlike some other small business we cannot take advantage of grants that are being supplied.

Any and all help is welcome 

The donations will soley be used to help towards costs that being unable to trade makes impossible to  maintain.

We welcome you to donate to our cause and in return would like like to reward you when we manage to reopen

Let's keep a Manchester institution standing.
