near Old Trafford Football Stadium & Cricket Ground

There are only a handful of restaurants near Old Trafford football stadium, the legendary home of Manchester United, and the city's most famous landmark.

It is located just 2 miles (4km) from Manchester city centre, with Lancashire County Cricket Club's Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground nearby.

As you'd expect, most Old Trafford pubs and bars get very busy on match days, both before and after the game with fans meeting up for a pint and a sing-a-long.

Old Trafford metrolink tram stop is attached to Lancashire County Cricket Ground, just 10 minutes walk from Manchester United along Warwick Road, and only 7 minutes journey time to Deansgate Castlefield in the city centre, where there is a further choice of bars.

For those going to "The Theatre Of Dreams", you can also get off the tram at Pomona (5 minutes journey from Deansgate Castlefield) or Exchange Quay (7 mins journey), both being an easy 12 minutes walk to Old Trafford football stadium.

Salford Quays, The Lowry, Imperial War Museum North and MediaCityUK are also a pleasant 12 minute walk from Old Trafford Football Stadium, with some great pre-match offers to be had.

Alternatively, Manchester United fans can catch a match day river cruise barge direct to Old Trafford from the bars in both Castlefield and Spinningfields.

Although you'd be forgiven for thinking it dates back to the 1820s, the time of the historic warehouses around it, this beautiful Castlefield pub was actually built in 1998 and traded until 2005 as 'Jackson's Wharf'', before Brunning & Price spectacularly re-opened it in July 2012. The large building offers a huge canalside terrace alongside innumerable nooks and crannies, with cosy, intimate rooms and alcoves in which you (and your dog) can enjoy the friendly "country pub" atmosphere, 12 cask ales, 50 wines, 100 whiskies and delicious British food. Popular pre-match, it's a pleasant walk along the Bridgewater Canal to Old Trafford or you can catch one of the match day canal boats, which depart just outside the restaurant and drops you off directly at the stadium.

This stunning canalside bar and terrace was originally a stable block for the horses delivering foods off barges to the Merchants Warehouse opposite. Since 1991, it has become one of the city's most popular pubs and event venues, transforming the Castlefield heritage zone in the process. Having undergone a million-pound renovation to celebrate their 25th anniversary, the building's heritage is reflected in a subtle blend of antique furniture and modern fixed seating. The huge outdoor terrace is especially popular for the canside barbeque in summer. Popular with Manchester United fans, it's a pleasant walk along the Bridgewater Canal to Old Trafford with match day canal cruises departing outside the restaurant an hour before kick off, and dropping you off directly at the stadium.
