After two years under cobwebs during the pandemic the pub is finally set to reopen having undergone a three month refit and refurb.

It has been taken over by Greene King pubs.

The pubs General Manager  Jonathon Evans spoke to I LOVE MCR saying: “The Deansgate is well-known and well-loved by the people of Manchester and we are looking forward to opening its doors once more and welcoming customers old and new.

“The new-look pub will pay homage to some of the venue’s original features and we also have some exciting new additions which we’re looking forward to unveiling.”

The two-floored pub and its roof terrace have been done up to the nines, and the rooftop terrace has also been rejuvenated.

Once it re-opens, the pub will also feature a new third floor space and another outdoor terrace too.

The new outdoor terrace will be bookable for drinks and food.

The new look pub will create 50 new jobs in the region, with recruitment currently underway for front of house and kitchen staff.

The Deansgate started life in the city in the 19th Century and was well-known for its traditional pub offering and festoon lights which adorned the venue for more than a decade.

The ongoing renovation will ensure the new look pub retains some of the venue’s more traditional features including the original stained glass windows, external frontage, ceilings, and woodwork with plans to re-install the well-known outdoor lighting.

The historic pub occupies a prominent position at the end of Deansgate next to the Hilton Hotel and Deansgate Locks.
