“Still very good, but is it me, or has the music become much louder?”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Having regularly used the BLounge during my occasional visits to Manchester, and having last eaten here in September 2013, I popped in with a group of colleagues in April intending to eat, but we were driven away by the music being far too loud.

I visited again in June, firstly for a drink with a former colleague, then returning later to eat. The little bar on the left as one enters doesn't have speakers, so is a little more quiet, and I was told that there was another area at the back without speakers. This was just acceptable.

There was an offer which included pinot grigio at only £9.95 a bottle and I still regard the food as being good value, in an attractive venue. But the noise level certainly lost the pub good business in April and I would only go back if I could get a seat in one of the quiet(er) areas.

The management needs to decide whether the noise level generates more trade than it is losing.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Called in for a meal on the way to our hotel as the Blounge was on route from the station. Lovely food especially the giant open sandwiches!!! Nice and stylish inside. Food prices are reasonable considering what you get for your money. Called in again on way back to station as we enjoyed it so much
