The English Lounge

The English Lounge photo


The English Lounge pub on the edge of the Northern Quarter in Manchester is, as the name suggests, a very British laid-back drinking hole! The exterior looks reassuringly familiar, and this comforting sense of tradition continues inside where there is casual seating throughout, as well as comfy sofas and larger tables for groups who often convene here before a night out. It’s also right opposite the Arndale Centre and some of the city’s other major shopping areas, making it popular with those looking to take the weight off their feet after a bit of retail therapy!

The pub has a reputation for being very female-friendly, and you will also often see families here at the weekend for Sunday lunches - the food is tasty and very good value, plus as the upstairs bar areas is available to hire, they have a couple of set buffet menus to cater for private events! Add to all of this bookshelves with British classics, a cracking beer selection (including a couple of guest ales on tap) and a wholly jovial atmosphere, and you have one very special old-school drinking establishment.

A word from the chef:
Proper British pub food as well as platters to share and lots of lighter bites for the lunch crowd - sandwiches, salads, wraps and jacket potatoes. Sunday lunch is popular, and there are good buffet menus for private events.

Great place for after work drinks - busy most weeknights but lots of nooks to sit in. Cushions included! Decent selection of Ales - both lights and dark
