THE STORY OF The Woodstock Arms

Dating back to the 1800s and the former home of the British Council, The Woodstock Arms is one of West Didsbury’s most established watering holes, enduringly popular with local residents, workers and visitors to the area.

Housed in a striking red-brick Victorian building, The Woodstock Arms has been lovingly restored, blending sumptuous period features with upscale contemporary touches: original stained glass, wood panelling, plush furnishings and statement chandeliers combine to create an inviting bar area, whilst outside the pub’s delightful beer garden, surrounded by greenery, is the perfect spot for al-fresco dining or a glass of something special on a sunny day. During those chillier months, the openfire is kept roaring, giving a home-from-home feel.

Dog-friendly and with a private function room for hire, The Woodstock Arms fosters a relaxed village vibe and holds the authenticity of a true British local close to its heart

Well-connected to the rest of Manchester, The Woodstock Arms is an ideal spot for relaxation and refreshment after a day’s retail therapy, a visit to the Novus Contemporary Art Gallery, Chorlton Water Park or one of the city’s many other attractions.

Expertly mixing the traditional and the modern, The Woodstock Arms is a hidden gem amongst Manchester’s suburbian pubs and undoubtedly worth venturing off the beaten track to visit.
