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.

Great staff and the food we had was delicious with generous portions. Shame the only ale on the burger fries and beer offer wasn’t available.

Came in veganuary and it was so good we keep coming back, love vegan hangover specials. Vegan jerk curry was amazing as was the Jambalaya, only one complaint, bit it's a big one, why can't the Philly steak sandwich with gravy not be on the menu permanent, why why why why why why

Hello Daniel, thank you for the feedback so glad you like our food and keep coming back! I will pass over this suggestion to our head chef to see if we can make the philly 'cheese' steak a permeant item on the main menu or to make more of an appearance on our specials boards. hopefully see you soon

Service and food were ok, but the venue and facilities were dismal, dirty and smelled like a student's laundry hamper.

Food was excellent as always, staff super friendly and welcoming, atmosphere was fun too. Just a shame they seemed to have stopped taking orders at the table which makes it feel a bit more like a spoons. But it’s not a deal breaker, the food is too good!

The room was orginally quoted as being able to hold 60 people. I would say at best it can hold 35 comfortably with a food table and DJ

Lovely staff. Good food though disappointed you'd run out of the quinoa bowl, though what I had instead was still very nice. Great to have so much vegan choice and that you support Veganuary :)

Food was delicious although had run out of many items, someone took our reservation table but the waitress was lovely and found us somewhere else to sit. We did however leave abruptly after our food as the music was suddenly jacked up really loud and we couldn't hear each other talk - it was 8pm on a Sunday night and we just wanted to have a chill and chat before work the next day!!

Had an amazing meal at the Deaf Institute. The service was friendly, food was delicious - mostly Vegan (which is why we chose to go there) but also a couple of meat / cheese options on the menu so something for every appetite / diet. The menu was very reasonably priced (we also enjoyed the half price on all food offer for January so was extra cheap on this occasion with a 2 course meal for 3 coming in at under £30) We will definitely be back again.

The deaf institute didn’t disappoint when I arranged a festive night for my friends, the staff were lovely and polite when we arrived for our Christmas meal! The food was great and really good value too. Alongside the management that sorted out the booking/reservation who were incredibly helpful and efficient!! Thank you!!
