A look inside the newly refurbished Crown and Kettle

Northern Quarter pub, Crown and Kettle, has finally reopened for business following a beautiful refurbishment.

The pub has stood on the site since 1734 and the refurb has retained many of the features of the original building; notably the ceiling from 1800s. The tables, too, are the same as before, they’ve just had a good polish.

The back room to the pub with its open fire

It’s a wonderful mesh of the old and the new, traditional and contemporary, rough and polished; with freshly painted navy blue walls contrasting against exposed brick and wood panels.

The ceiling itself is an impressive spectacle, with large stone columns, which used to hold chandeliers, reaching down from intricately detailed ceiling roses.

Long traditional windows in the bar area stretch up towards the high ceiling, letting in tons of natural light, reflecting against shiny gold beer pumps and brass lamps. A wood burning fire and the dark walls makes for a very cosy seating area.

Crown and Kettle is now completely independent and is under the management of Alex Daw, who is behind arts venue Sidney & Matilda in Sheffield.

The free house has a rotating selection of 20 independent keg lines and six keg beers, with a focus on supporting regional and national indie brewers.

Parts of the refurb have involved stripping back parts of the pub to its original features

The pub can be found on the corner of Great Ancoats street and Oldham Road which, as you’ll know if you’ve walked, driven or existed around that part of town recently, has been hit pretty hard by roadworks. So much so, the pub is currently using a temporary entrance on Oldham Road.

Crown and Kettle is currently open from noon until 10pm every day with no bookings required.
