Seems nice for what and where it is

I only stopped by here for one soft drink whilst waiting for a decent lunchtime, however the pub appears in reasonable order and the drinks are well-priced (being the city centre, everybody is no doubt in competition) and the staff seem polite, however they weren't exactly rushed at midday, I... read more

This was recommended by someone in the Manchester Art Gallery as they'd stopped serving hot food, from the moment we went in Phil looked after us, the food was lovely, the atmosphere just right for late afternoon/early evening & I'd like to say that I thought Phil handled a very difficult customer (not me) very well, he continued looking after...

We went there yesterday with family (9 of us). We ordered different dishes : we all loved the food. Quality food, generous portions, at reasonable price. The staff are very efficient and friendly.

Have just returned from the English Lounge, another great meal, thank you Phil for finding us a table even though we hadn't got a booking. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the English a Lounge. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Phil and he is so pleasant every time we visit. Thank you. Red Deb x

I'm a regular at the English Lounge and the service and friendliness of the staff is second to none. Love the Sunday lunches, but the food served throughout the week is also excellent. Would highly recommend to fellow Mancunians or anyone visiting from out of the area.

I've been to Manchester hundreds of times and never knew about about this Gem of a place. English Lounge is bang in the town centre 100yds from Debenhams... Just follow tram tracks from Debenhams and it's on your right. Came for lunch and found it very homely, friendly and very welcoming, thanks to the ambience & the staff, who I... More

It was recommended to us by a local barman as being a good place to eat in that locality. It had a pub downstairs & restaurant upstairs and the same menu could be had in either. We chose the restaurant as it was quieter.We were both very happy with the food & the menu choice & came away very satisfied.... More
