Across Great Ancoats Street from where the Rose & Crown was at the top of Store Street was the Bird in Hand. It was set back slightly from the main road, but its address was No.203 Great Ancoats Street, run by Isaac Bailey according to the Slater's Directory on the 1849 map . Its location is hard to ascertain today; suffice to say it sat somewhere beneath the car park of the Ancoats Retail Park.
