‘The King’s’ is a little gem of a pub on a relatively small street between the main drag of Chapel Street and Trinity Way. It’s slightly off the main circuit for folk in the centre, which is probably no bad thing. It successfully combines the slightly offbeat character of Salford’s mixture of Industrial and University life without veering too far either way. I.e. There’s a good mix of folk and it’s not a student pub. So far so good. There’s also usually a good selection of beer - real ales, cider and bottled Belgian and the food has supposedly taken an upward turn of late. The pub building itself is a real cracker and seems to be an example of the environment really aiding the atmosphere. Apart from it being a bit too chilly on occaision (which extremely picky folk might also say about the ale) there’s almost nothing to complain about. A great little boozer.
