What Pub?

The What Pub? website is the product of thousands of volunteers visiting pubs, adding content and developing the site over a 2 year period.

The 'WhatPub' website aims to become the best, most comprehensive online pub listing which all pub-lovers can use and enjoy. At present there are currently more than 21,000 pubs listed on this site but we need YOUR help to ensure these listings are as complete and accurate as possible.

We realise that this is only the end of the beginning for 'WhatPub'. We know that we must continue to develop and improve the site and with the help and support of members like you we can make this the best pub website in Britain.

How you can view and review..... Logging in to WhatPub
Visit and log in with either:
The same details you use to visit the Members Area of CAMRA’s national website.
If you have not visited the Members Area of CAMRA’s national website before, then please try your CAMRA membership number (which will be 6 digits – if it is less, please use the leading zeros e.g. 001234) and postcode when you joined the Campaign (upper case, no spaces e.g. AL44LW).

If none of these seem to be working, please email with an email titled ‘Membership Password for WhatPub’, your name and membership number and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Submitting & Editing Pub Data
Enter a pub that you would like to view in the search field – pubs can be searched by pub name, town, station, post code etc. e.g. Mermaid St Albans.
If there is some information missing, or you feel needs improving/updating then click on the red button ‘Add/Edit Details’ at the top right of the page.

You will be taken to a Pub Feedback form that will allow you to submit additional information and recommend changes.

This information will be sent to the appropriate CAMRA branch and updated. Please be patient as these branch officials are volunteers and will try their best to update the site with your suggestions as soon as they can.

If you cannot find a pub that you wish to view/review then this is because it has not yet been entered on to the system by the local branch. Unfortunately only pubs that have been listed by your branch can be viewed and edited. If you would like to offer help to your local branch or want to check if your branch is participating then visit and get in touch.

If there is not an ‘Add/Edit Details’ option on the pub that you have searched for then this is because the CAMRA branch that manages this data has yet to agree that they have the resources to manage updates/changes. Again please visit if you would like to contact your local branch on this matter.

We hope you will enjoy using 'WhatPub' and we look forward to your help in developing the site. Once we are happy we have the best pub website in Britain we will launch to the public but for the time being this is for members only.

Find a Pub By Tram

Manchester Metrolink's rapid and frequent service is ideal for visiting the many pubs and bars along its route. The expansion of the network taking place between 2011 and 2016 offers the ideal opportunity for days out exploring new areas. The first of the "Big Bang" extension took the network to the real ale haven of Chorlton-cum-Hardy. To mark this expansion, Trafford & Hulme CAMRA have published two guides to visiting pubs along the two Metrolink lines which run through the Trafford & Hulme branch - the line from the City Centre to Altrincham and the new South Manchester line to St Werburgh's Road via Chorlton.

Leaflets are available from tourist information centres and pubs across the Trafford & Hulme branch or can be viewed and printed from the Trafford & Hulme website.

Pubs by Tram - City to Altrincham

Pubs by Tram - South Manchester Line

To order a paper copy of either leaflet, send a stamped self addressed envelope - preferably DL (1/3 A4) sized - to
Pubs By Tram,
c/o 28 Barlow Moor Court,
Manchester, M20 2UU.
Please write which leaflet(s) required in top left corner.
