Garner brings us, Chaucer-like, to this much loved pub, The Old Monkey, on Portland Street in the city centre. In this old-fashioned oasis of hospitality and bonhomie, there is good, hearty food, real ales and craft beers to be had, alongside the Trapdoor comedy club. All the ingredients for a traditional, Manc night-out. It has all the classic Garner compositional elements of street, buildings and sky, given his own immediately recognisable interpretation.
