A Brand New Canalside Bar Serving Al Fresco Burgers & Vegan Grub Has Opened In Manchester

A new place to bask in the sun!

Manchester may have been blessed with a vast array of pop-up beer gardens this summer, but there’s always room for more. Particularly when they boast calm, waterside views like new restaurant Roby 1844.

Opening their doors just last weekend, the new drinking and dining spot has taken up residence underneath The Holiday Inn on Aytoun Street, taking up two levels which are complete with canal views and waterside seating.

Perfect to enjoy on a hot summer’s day when the water is glistening under the Mancunian sunshine, the brand new terrace is home to an outdoor bar – where guests will be able to enjoy locally made brews from Salford brewery Seven Bro7hers, as well as Manchester Gin and Three Rivers Gin, too.

On the food menu, you’ll find a range of burgers, sandwiches, platters and more, as well as a dedicated vegan menu boasting dirty fries, corn ribs and pulled jackfruit baps. The menu champions comforting street food, with a little something for everyone to enjoy.

If that wasn’t all, in the summer, guests can expect live music, as well as a stop for canal barges to disembark for a pint in the sun.

Steve Julian, Manager at The Holiday Inn, said; “We’ve got such a great space by the water and wanted to create a standalone destination, perfect for after-work drinks, weekend socialising and get-togethers. People are welcome to head down for a drink, a bite to eat or both – at the moment, no booking is necessary. It’s a great place to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy spending time with people, especially after being apart for so long.”

Roby 1844 is open daily from 12pm-11pm, with walk-ins welcome.
