About The Deaf Institute

The Deaf Institute is an amazing three-tier bar and live music venue that is a Manchester nightlife staple in the student hub of Oxford Road. Music magazine NME said of The Deaf Institute that “It looks like it's been dragged out of some ancient crevice of history before the invention of soulless corporate venues.” The quirky charm is what makes this venue so cool and current amongst the ever changing Manchester bar scene.

We had a very successful Christmas Party. Our students asked for more.

Fantastic pre-show meal. The fact that the band members of main act sat at adjacent table topped the evening off for us.

We didn’t like our food at all. I had visited previously and had the Sunday lunch but tried other dishes. To be honest both my husband and I thought they were awful.

Terrible food. Chicken and waffle(s): only one waffle, unattractive looking dish, dense flavourless seitan. Seitan hot dog: extremely firm seitan, unpleasant. Bad service: no table was reserved and we had to stand around waiting. Eventually the waitress asked another table (occupied with staff) to move - extremely awkward. Waited ages for my drink and it was bad quality when it arrived (margarita). Would be good value for money if the food wasn’t so unpleasant.

Food was so so good, also loved the menu and all the choices! We had gins and they were nice, just a bit strange to give paper straws whilst serving in a plastic cup? Also, at about quarter past 6 the speakers above us went on at full blast and we had to shout to have a conversation so that ruined the atmosphere abit, could of probably waited till at least 8pm to make the music that loud.

Small portions, especially the chicken and waffle. Wouldn’t go if it wasn’t 2-4-1 on a Wednesday. Waiting staff lovely, bar staff a bit slow I think there was a new member and it took about 10 minutes to get my cocktails after ordering them.

Despite stating on my reservation that my wife used a wheelchair and we would need level access, we arrived to find out that the stair lift was broken and there was no other access options for the venue. Upon asking further we were told that it had been broken for some time and they just hadn't got it fixed and by the sounds of it there were no plans to do so. Please make sure you sort your access options and if they are not available make people aware when they state it would be required on their reservation!

Unfortunately half our party didn't show in the end but I was extremely happy with the service.The tables were very big, the food came out really fast and the bar staff even found me some peach puree for my beer even though they clearly thought I was mad. (Don't judge! It's called a "demi-peche" and is very popular in France and is very delicious) Over all a lovely experience and I can't wait to go back to Manchester so I can eat there again! :D

I celebrated my bday in the basement, it was a very reasonable charge and it went on till 3am. We were left alone downstairs and the venue was great. Bouncers were friendly and in general all the staff were great. Thinking of having another party there soon.

Good menu and plenty of vegan options. However the range of meat dishes is limited to mainly burgers and hotdogs. Service is very helpful and friendly
