What a wonderful experience... Worth the walk: very friendly, warm and welcoming staff. And the 'pub grub' cooked to perfection! Try the Fish&Chips on a 'real' newspaper and amaze yourself...

Me and a friend decided to venture into what looked like a great restaurant and bar type place. We ordered, and then waited and waited. Then my friends food came, after 40 mins. But not mine. I asked where mine was after 5 mins, the waiter with the ponytail then told me there was a mix up. And when I... More

After wandering around for a nice looking place for some breakfast we saw the English Lounge. We went and were greeted instantly by very friendly staff. The building is lovely and the breakfast was excellent (the Mrs said it's the best sausage she's ever had)... Definitely going back next time we're in Manchester!

Greeted by a friendly member of staff as soon as we entered and given a choice of tables to sit at. Drinks order kindly taken and served at table whilst we chose lunch from the varied menu. Our lunch was served in good time and was excellent quality. Probably one of the best bar meals I've had! Definitely worth revisiting.

We really needed a good full English breakfast and wow did the English Lounge achieve it! 2 sausages, 2 smoked bacon, 2 eggs, beans, fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns, black pudding, 2 slices of thick toast, coffee or tea AND orange juice! £8.95! The sausages and bacon were so delicious as were the eggs, tomatoes and everything else! Great service... More

Okay, so I showed up here late-ish (7pm) on a Sunday. It's not packed, but it's busy. As promised, there is book shelving, dark wood furniture, patterned walls, plenty of beers, spirits, rich savory food, and good smells. Various cheeky quotes hand painted on the walls, like "A man is only as old as the woman he feels." The staff... More

Visited the English Lounge on a Saturday evening hoping to find a table for 8 to dine. With a bit of furniture moving, the very helpful staff accomodated us, in the first floor dining room. We have dined in the English Lounge before and have always enjoyed the quality, choice, presentation and cost of food and again, it didn't disappoint... More

Very busy pub downstairs. We ate upstairs. Great value 2 courses for £15 on a Monday to Friday. Attentive service. The food was AMAZING. Highly recommend The English Lounge.
