Would you like the opportunity to help develop a landmark pub in the heart of Manchester?

The Union, Manchester Met, working with Bollington Brewing Company, run The Salutation which is one of Manchester’s most historic pubs, one of only two in the city with original 1840’s décor.

Working within an inclusive, empowering and aspirational culture, you’ll be instrumental in raising the profile of The Salutation by championing service excellence, quality real and craft ales, creating an events and promotions programme and by using social media to increase online presence.

The Salutation

With over 170 years of history, The Salutation is widely known as one of Manchester’s most historic pubs. This venue boasts an authentic Victorian décor all restored from its original state.

In 2011, Manchester Metropolitan University purchased the pub from Punch Taverns and in June 2013, The Union took control of running the pub to re-establish its reputation as a city landmark.

In the summer of 2014, a £235,000 refurbishment of the building took place, which saw many of the original features retained to restore the character and ambience of the pub. During this time, the letting rooms upstairs were converted into function rooms available to book for all types of meetings and intimate events.

We are now looking to affirm our commitment to real and craft ale from Bollington Brewing Co and other independent local breweries, and with a further ground floor refurbishment taking place, we want to make the Salutation a must visit pub on anyone’s bucket list.
