Here’s a peek into the newly refurbished Deansgate Pub

The much loved boozer has re-opened and is looking in fine fettle after a huge refurbishment

The pub, which started life in the city in the 19th Century, has undergone a three-month refurbishment to transform the space into an authentic city pub with a modern twist.

The pub shut their doors during the pandemic in 2020.

A statement from Greene King, who now run the pub, said they are hoping to bring “three floors of first class food and drink, as well as live entertainment to the city.”

The refurb includes the full transformation of the venue’s existing two floors, as well as opening up a third-floor space, taking the venue’s capacity to 312 seats.

Jonathon Evans, General Manager at The Deansgate, said, “The Deansgate has always been a Manchester staple, from when it was first opened back in the 19th Century and we’re so excited to be able to open its doors once more.

“The transformation from an empty to space into a proper yet modern pub, with extensive food, drink and live sports offering has been months in the making and we’re looking forward to welcoming guests back to The Deansgate!”

There’s also not one, but two roof terraces, with built-in seating, lighting and outdoor heaters, making it the perfect all weather outdoor drinking space.

In a nod to the history of the pub, the refurbishment has been careful to retain some of its original features including the stained-glass windows, external frontage, ceilings, and woodwork whilst also giving the venue a modern, on-trend feel.

New features include green décor and solid wood flooring and bar areas, which create a proper pub feel and the introduction of booth style seating on all floors.

The ground floor also includes a feature bar area in a half moon shape, made from solid wood in the venue’s signature green colour, with bespoke brass fonts and a glass back bar.

What’s more the refurbishment will also see the return of The Deansgate’s much-loved festoon lighting, which had previously adorned the venue for decades.

Greene King say they hope this helps to ‘bring a little sparkle back to Deansgate’.

The pub hasn’t just been given a bold new look – they have set out a new menu too.

As well as a whole new look, guests will also be able to enjoy a new food menu which features a mix of pub classics as well as sharing plates and platters.

Traditional dishes include Steak and Ale Pie and Beer Battered Cod and Chips, as well as classic Sunday Roasts, with a range of meat options or Nut Roast Wellington, served with all the trimmings.

For those who want to try it or all or simply can’t decide, the menu offers a range of small plates including Karaage Chicken, Crispy Squid and Beyond Meat Burger Sliders to name a few.

Guests can get their hands on these at three for £15 or five for £26.

The Deansgate’s drinks menu offers a range of 12 premium beers on tap, including regional favourite the Fuzzy Hazy Pale Ale from Manchester’s number one rated beer company, Cloud Water.

The back bar will also boast a selection of wines and spirits, including the popular Fitz English Sparkling wine. The pub also boasts an extensive cocktail menu featuring everything from Palomas to signature spritzes – including the classic Aperol Spritz and the alcohol-free Warner’s Pink Berry 0% Spritz.

The pub will also be open for the World Cup and are now taking table bookings for every match that will be shown.

You can even book a private screening place on the ground and third floor if you want to get some mates together to watch the football.

The Deansgate will boast seven TV screens showing live sports on BT and SKY on every floor.
