The Cheshire-based New Moon Pub Co is set to open his fifth venue in three years.
Its new Manchester site will be called the Beef & Pudding, an urban pub and kitchen.
The business is run by co-owner and chef patron David Mooney, and business partner and former Living Ventures director, Paul Newman (pictured above).
"Manchester is a thriving city, where quality is recognised and expected. We're excited to bring our brand of dining experience to the area and we know it will meet the strict criteria for excellence demanded by city diners," Newman said.
The Beef & Pudding will be on the site of what was the Crown on Booth Street. It will serve locally sourced food, real ales, wines and a bespoke list of cocktails.
The pub, which takes its name from its location, close to St Peter's Square, and makes reference to a famed caricature of the Peterloo Massacre by George Cruikshank, where a soldier says: "Give them no quarter, they want to take our beef and pudding from us."
Mooney said: "We'll be giving the beef and pudding back to the people of Manchester. "This is an exciting project for us, and personally for me, as I was born just a stone's throw from the site at St Mary's Hospital."
Beef & Pudding is scheduled to open at the end of March 2014 and is expected to employ between 20 and 30 people.
