Manor Inn, High Street East
Built in 1839 by John Pott who obtained a 99 year lease and almost immediately started selling beer, in Slater's Directory for 1843 he was described as a beer retailer. He applied for the better alehouse licence every year from 1846 until he was successful in 1853. John Pott remained licensee until his death in 1864 when his widow Betty took over remaining until 1871 when George Winterbottom became licensee before moving up to the Royal Oak in 1874.
Betty's son Robert then became licensee until Betty returned in 1876 for twelve months. She remained owner until 1891 and took out a 999year lease six months before selling the pub to Emma Platt whose husband James became licensee, nine months later Boddington's Brewery bought it and installed William Henry Seddon as licensee.
In December 1921 Herbert Amfield became licensee remaining for 36 years until 1957 when Dorothy Holland took over remaining until 1971.
Two years later Ralph Edward Burgess became licensee, he was secretary of the Licensed Victuallers Association and a Manchester JP. He left in 1985 and Ken Batty became licensee during which time the pub was extended into the house next door to provide facilities for meals and accommodation.
As with other Boddington's pubs it became a Greenall's house in November 1995.
Above the door is a fanlight stating that the pub is "Licensed in Pursuance of Act of Parliament for Music and Singing", another original feature of a pub which needs to be preserved.
