Superb Pub!

Although I'm not usually a pub goer I love the English lounge, the service, food, and atmosphere is great. There's a delicate balance of mood lighting, music, and gentle chatter. I'm taking a star off because I've seen a few hen parties being a bit boisterous in there but that's not a criticism... read more

We met up as a family to celebrate our daughter's graduation and wanted somewhere good but reasonable to eat near the hotel. The choice of beers, cocktails and wine was good as was the variety of dishes available. We all ate well and enjoyed our meals. Being a Monday evening there weren't many people in so we enjoyed a relaxing... More

Ate at this restaurant with my partner. This place is very well disguised. Although i have been past this place on numerous occasions, i have never thought to go in. It's not what i expected. Its completely different but really well designed. We both decided to have the Sunday lunch option along with some starters. The food was excellent. Fantastic... More

Went in for Sunday dinner. An excellent place to pop in on a Sunday evening. The music playing in the background was excellent and just a nice mix. The service was excellent and the food arrived really quickly. We wanted for nothing as the staff kept checking on us and got us more drinks nice and quick. The food was... More

Excellent Service and food. It's convenient for Bus and rail stations and close to the Arndale shopping centre. Loved every minute of our visit, very warm and friendly staff and the prices are excellent as are the portion sizes

Visited the English Lounge over the weekend and as usual the food was absolutely fantastic, the chefs never fail to deliver. Cajun Chicken Fillet burger was really tasty, best pub food in the Northern Quarter. The service was great and friendly as ever. The English Lounge will be seeing me next weekend.
