The Ox Named Best British Pub
Wot? Not The Rovers Return?
A pub popular with Corrie stars has been named the best in Britain — and it was not the Rovers Return.
The Ox in Castlefield, Manchester, is close to the ITV1 soap’s Granada studios and regulars include some Coronation Street actors.
On the weekend it topped a magazine’s 50 Best British Pubs poll.
The Ox’s tasty food, cask ale and fine wines had already earned it a place in the Egon Ronay 2006 Guide.
Boss Nicholas Bayne, 32 — who took over only a year ago — said: “I’m stupendously chuffed."
