This place has really gone down hill food was not nice will not be going again. Nobody in our group out for Mothers day ate their food. I have been before and really enjoyed it but I believe it has changed hands

The place has been done out recently to a high standard. A great choice of wines and ales are available. Comfortable surroundings and a nice little smoking area too. The only glitch was a 40 minute wait for food which just seemed too long considering it wasn't busy when we visited.

We had visited this restaurant twice previously and loved the ambience and food - cosy and eclectic styling and good hearty English food. What a disappointment to return and find a bland and characterless pub and no proper food. We had looked at the website a day or so before we visited and the old menu was still displayed. When...

We loved the English Lounge - big comfy armchairs, a pint of doombar and a proper Sunday lunch. But..... oh no, not anymore. After a recent refurb and new owners, we experienced a bad wetherspoons type pub with no atmosphere, rubbish beers, hard chairs, no proper cider, boring Sunday lunch, boring menu. What a shame. You have managed to ruin... More

The English Lounge used to be one of the best places in Manchester. Quirky and characterful with a Sunday lunch that was consistently on the top of the Manchester Sunday lunch lists online. Since the new owners have taken over they’ve literally whitewashed the character out of it. Rather dull white walls and complete lack of atmosphere. It’s like every... More

An old favourite but recently this once cosy city centre pub has changed ownership and has just reopened after having a makeover, unfortunately they removed the cosy. Our favourite seating area in the window has been replaced with tables so tall they must supply abseiling gear to vacate them. Table service is no longer; order at the bar. The menu... More

As i live in town English lounge was my go to place for a fantastic Sunday lunch. I noticed it was recently refurbished and I can tell you know new isn't always better. The decor inside made the place and now it's changed to look like every other gastro pub out there, it's lost its uniqueness. On to the food... More

We always go to the English lounge to eat every time we visit Manchester . Never again unless they change the menu back to traditional food . The main menu consists of pizza and burgers . What happened to good old fashioned British menu . We was really disappointed . As the English lounge used to live up to its... More

I have been a regular at the English Lounge for the last 7 years and it has always been a positive experience. My friends and I usually dine upstairs, we have enjoyed the food and the excellent service over the years. We recently became aware that the venue had changed hands, we were worried and after our last visit we... More
