tapecutBuilt in 1840 as a coaching inn, due to its close proximity to the Heaton Norris Station, The Magnet has retained its original name for 170 years.

On 13th November at 13:13:13, we tempted fate and opened our doors, with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The ribbon was cut by our good friend John who was born on Friday 13th!

Being a family run pub, families are very welcome. We have baby changing facilities. Dogs are also welcome.

Our chosen charity is Kidneys For Life at MINT (Manchester Institute For Nephrology and Transplantation). This charity is based at Manchester Royal Infirmary and funds raised helps renal patients from all over the region. It is a charity very close to our hearts. So far we have raised thousands of pounds through donations and the sale of pump clips.
