I visited The Deaf Institute for an evening meal with a friend on a Sunday, when they mainly offer vegan food. This wasn't an accident, we sought out this venue due to this dining option, despite it being slightly out of the centre and the option is welcomed. We got there late and there wasn't much left on the menu,... More

Nice, relaxing place to grab something to eat. Everything on the menu looks amazing and everything I tried was truly amazing. High quality and reasonably priced. If you get a burger, dont forget to pimp your fries! You get much more from the extra £2 you get! trust me.. ;) The stuff are nice and friendly. Seriously, if you are... More

Stayed for the nightlife after and was impressed at the array of different genres and the friendly people there. Highly recommended for a... More

Really nice pub to grab some food before a gig, Everyone really enjoyed their food and lots of vegan friendly dishes and craft ales. other than the vegan stuff they had good choice of meat dishes. The place is quite hipster friendly so that's why I am guessing that they catered for vegans.

Staff friendly and helpful, food was not long coming even though they were real busy. We tried the flatbread pizza which was very good, thin... More

Having been going to the Deaf Institute for gigs and club nights for years I went for food for the very first time. Whilst I eat meat I was with my brother who is a vegan and was looking for a place where he could have some choice. I've really struggled to find nice mid-range quick vegan food in Manchester....

First ever visit for a gig on Friday night, and asked the door staff if there was any seating as my wife had just had a knee operation and couldn't stand for long. They explained the layout and there was a suitable area at the rear. They then said that they would reserve seats for use just in case. On... More

Best venue I have ever been to. I have been to a good few. Delighted I travelled from Dublin to see Phantogram here. Also the food was fantastic and in particular the crispy tijuana chicken wings and Chicken & Chorizo burger! Fab!! Bar & restaurant staff really friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back in the not too distant future.
