The Circus Tavern in Portland Street, Manchester, England, is the smallest public house in the city, with one of the smallest bars in the country.[1] Built in about 1790, it is also one of the oldest pubs in Manchester, although it only became a pub in about 1840.[2][3] The pub is owned by Tetley's, a local brewery, and contains photographs of former Manchester United players who frequented the pub, including George Best.[4][5] It was listed as a Grade II building in 1994.[6][7]
