Throstles Nest, Seymour Grove

This once-popular local's boozer on the Old Trafford - Whalley Range border closed down in 2010.  The Throstles Nest was also a match day boozer for Man Utd fans but despite this it has gone the way of so many inner city alehouses.

The Throstles Nest is next door to the Old Trafford Conservative club on Seymour Grove, and is still shown as open in 2009 on Google streetmaps.

  1. It opened in 1968. As an impoverished student, I got thrown out for sitting with the same pint for two hours.

  2. Well as someone who lived there ( my parents were managers for whitbreead ) an alehouse in its heyday it was not ! A popular food venue for office staff from Seymour Grove and Trafford Park with a great pub group downstairs in the Gaiety Bar and Al A Carte restaurant upstairs popular with local residents too. A match day boozer it was not a bit too far from Old Trafford football ground much nearer to the cricket ground in fact. No stranger to celebrities a regular haunt to the cast of Coronation Street in the seventies when filming nearby Geoffrey Hughes Bernard Youens Jean Alexander etc As for inner city well Seymour Grove is hardly inner city ! It's not even in the the center of Chorlton let alone Manchester. So for those who remember it's hey day I am sure remember it with fondness for those who only know it in its sad decline I say you missed a real gem.
