The eternal search for the best Sunday Lunch in a Manchester continued on to The English Lounge which served up a sub par Beef Roast I had ordered the lamb but after 10 minute the waitress came back to tell me that it was off.Utterly disappointed with it. Amazingly as I sat there people ordered the lamb and again 10... More

My friend and I visited the English Lounge yesterday. We waited 45 minutes for a risotto and fish and chips. When my friend asked a waiter how much longer we would have to wait he casually said 'Oh,not long' without asking what we'd ordered or going to the kitchen to find out. We waited another five minutes then told them... More

We had our team Xmas meal here on 5th December. Food was marvellous - set menu of Ham hock terrine followed by lamb shank that was huge and so tender with a trio of chocolate puds to finish. I was too full to finish them! Excellent value

Called in here again on Sunday after watching United beat Loserpool, and had a great meal to finish off a great day!! I had the homemade lamb and mint pie with chips, and the huge chunks of lambinsde were gorgeous. My son had the chicken Sunday lunch, but he wasn't too keen on his.... so I helped him finish it!!...

We went to the Christmas market and built up a hunger looking round. Not being frequent visitors to Manchester we were just looking for somewhere to sit down for a drink and food when across the tram tracks we spotted the English lounge. We were quickly seated and given menus to browse, a drinks order was taken soon after along... More

We had arrived quite late in Manchester and this place was one of the closest to our accommodation. My wife's Fish and Chips was passable but a bit greasy. My Prawn Tagliatele was spoiled by the addition of too many chillies - it was, without doubt, the hottest Italian meal I have ever had. The house red was drinkable. Not... More

Nice pub and quite a jovial atmosphere about the pub. Beer and Food are both fine and quite reasonably priced too. Would go back there if in the area again.
