Welcome to Founder’s Hall

Located in the shadow of the historic Manchester Town Hall on Albert Square, Founder’s Hall is a place to meet, eat and drink.

With the Brewery at the heart of the business, paying homage to the Founders and (nearly) 200 years of history in brewing, Founder’s Hall showcases a vast range of cask ales, craft lagers, traditional brews and small batch Boilerhouse beers.

The food has been carefully crafted to complement the line up on the bar, with something to suit every palate; from bar snacks to home made, hand pressed pies and, of course, the best of JW Lees pub dishes.

 

Boilerhouse

Try something new

Available on the bar there’ll be 4 limited edition Boilerhouse beers which will vary regularly, plus our permanent Boilerhouse Craft Pale.

Beer Garden

Enjoy a relaxing pint on our terrace in Albert Square in Manchester City Centre. Our unique look and feel puts you in a contemporary beer hall in the city centre ideal for an alfresco lunch or a crisp pint outside with friends. We are the perfect location for pre-show dinner if you’re heading to The Palace Theatre for a show, or to Manchester Academy for a gig.
