The sausages and bacon were so delicious as... read 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

Sunday dinner and I couldn`t recommend the English lounge any higher. Fantastic food, great sized portions, great price and great service too. I honestly couldn`t fault my visit at all. Good background music too, plenty of soul and Motown at just the right sound level

What a find!! The best lamb and mint pie, chips and gravy we've ever had. Extensive menu with everything from pies to roasts to salt and pepper squid. Lovely, friendly service, good value for money and just what we need after a disastrous meal the evening before. Very busy so booking is recommended. If in Manchester for any length of... More

We ate here on Tuesday before a show in Manchester, the food was excellent, could not fault anything, the restaurant was very friendly and welcoming, also special offer of 2 courses off the main menu Monday to Thursday between 5-7 for £15 and also special offers on drinks. The service was also outstanding. We will be returning soon.
