Said to have appeared on maps as far back as 1844, the historic Manchester pub the Lass O Gowrie has now been given a new lease of life after an impressive six-figure refurbishment and has finally reopened its doors to punters. Located just a stone’s throw away from Manchester Oxford Road Station, nestled next to the River Medlock, the Lass O Gowrie’s transformation is now complete, with all new furniture, carpets, floors, lighting fixtures and artwork giving the pub a new and improved urban feel.
Pub-goers can enjoy a pint of one of the bar’s extensive lagers, beers and craft ales from its new brass iron fonts, which not only help deliver the perfect pint but have become a focal point for the bar’s new look. Plus, the Lass O Gowrie’s beer garden which has capacity for up to 20 people outside, has undergone its own makeover, with a new and improved seating area, decking and fencing, making it the perfect spot to enjoy a drink over the summer months as it overlooks the river.
But that’s not all. The Lass O Gowrie now also boasts a new multi-purpose cinema room has also been created with access to both BBC and Sky Sports channels. It can be hired out for private sports screenings, as well as bespoke big screen events, with space to accommodate 20 people seated and 35 standing.
The pub on Charles Street has also reintroduced its food offering to its extensive menu of refreshing drinks giving pubgoers a chance to sample classics such as the Classic Fish and Chips as well as new dishes including the Beyond Meat Burger. Dog friendly and with weekly open mic and quiz nights, the Lass O Gowrie has got a little something for everyone.
Josh Murray, General Manager of Lass O Gowrie, said: “We couldn’t be happier with phase two of the refurbishment and are really excited to be able to welcome our regulars and newcomers back through the pub’s doors. Having received a full makeover both inside and out, the Lass O Gowrie has never looked better, and I speak on behalf of myself and the team when I say we can’t wait to show it off.”
