Rob Hunter left this review about English Lounge

It's probably been over five years since I was last in the English Lounge, so decided to call in yesterday evening. The pub itself is clean and modern and pleasant. On the long edge of the bar were six hand pulls, two of these were off with the remaining offering English Lounge IPA (by Caledonian, so probably Deuchars IPA rebadged), Robinsons Dizzy Blonde, Robinsons Trooper and Doom Bar. There was a further bank of four hand pulls near the door which had Dizzy Blonde, Trooper and Doom Bar duplicated, with one pump off. Not a terribly exciting line up and nothing really to head back for on the ale front. My half of the English Lounge IPA was £1.85.

The pub was reasonably busy but not packed and soon started filling up with the after work crowd. The pub is fairly open yet with pillars and different seating types it gives the impression of separate areas.

It's not a terrible pub, but the beer choice could be a lot better.

A large high-ceilinged establishment with wooden floors and a reasonably traditional feel. It is divided into several distinct areas, with a mixture of seating and several TV screens. There appears to be another room upstairs and a roof terrace (not visited). Draught ales on at time of visit included Theakston's BB, Trooper and Cameron's Phenology.

Another pub that's OK based on the fact that its a traditional style pub and not a tedious cafe bar kinda thing. That said it does have some gaudy lighting throughout. Its also quite expensive. There are 6 handpumps with one of them for cider. The price list is shown on a small peg board behind the bar and it might be best to seek this out before you order if its your round. Still, if you're into paying £5.10 for crap like Guinness's Hop House Lager then I assume money isn't a problem for you. Not the best but it does what it is meant to do, though a little pricey.
