“Gorgeous food, amazing Sunday Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in Manchester for the weekend. The concierge at our hotel recommended the English Lounge and we weren't disappointed, so much so we ate there on the Saturday night, then went back for Sunday lunch before heading home. The food was delicious, service excellent and great value for money too. Will definitely return on my next visit to manchester.

“Fantastic Thankyou to you all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I booked a suprise 50th Birthday Party for my partner for January 1tth 13 now i booked this party early August 12 and from the minute i booked i had help and advise every step of the way,right up to the very minute of walking into the restarant bar on the night.
We had around 50ish people attend and not one person had one wrong word to say about the venue ,the food ,the staff, the drinks prices everything was just brilliant,there is a lift to the function room if needed,toilets are on the same floor and there is a smoking area (nice warm and cosy may i add) which does not interfere with non-smokers.
The food was amazing ,the bar staff were great freindly happy guys and i couldnt of asked for anything better, my only complaint is i wish we could do it all over again as i felt i was that nervous as i forgot to say it was a suprise party i missed it all in the exitement but my partner David was overwhelmed and David and i would most certainly reccommend The English Lounge to anyone.
Thankyou to all the staff, we really did appreciate all your help . Oh and the Sunday Lunch was fab the very next day .

“Very nice pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Came here in December for a Christmas dinner.Was a set menu which we had to per-order.The place itself is very nice and the pub feels warm and friendly.The bar staff were were friendly as well.Bar prices are a bit more expensive than other pubs.Very good location next to the arndale.We dined upstairs and the room was very well decorated for Christmas.Had a nice table and the staff serving the food were excellent.The three course meal was very nice and good size portions.Thought it was abit pricey but would definitely recommend to others.

“Food nice, Service and manners of staff apalling”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This pub was recommended to us by a friend. we were moderatley impressed with the food and it was presented well. However, after being shouted down to by the waitress after asking a simple question I would definatley not return. The manners of the staff there were apalling, it may only be a pub but I did not expect to be treated like that. I have never experienced customer service like it! It was truly shocking.
