The English Lounge, Manchester


The English Lounge pub in Manchester, is on the edge of the Northern Quarter, and as the name suggests is a very British laid-back watering 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 at the pub before a big 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 often find families frequenting on weekends for Sunday lunches - the food is tasty and very good value for money. The upstairs bar areas are available to hire, and cater for private events and can seat up to 30 guests. 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.
