Expert review of Lounge 10

Enjoy good food and live entertainment in a decadently done out restaurant.

Live entertainment, red leather seats, black velvet table cloths and a clairvoyant in the attic doesn’t sound like my idea of a good restaurant but Lounge Ten makes it work; and work well.

Food and drink: 

With so much going on, it would be easy for the food to slip into the background but the French menu is packed with tempting dishes such as double baked goats’ cheese souffle with toasted almonds and a parmesan cream (£9) and oven baked lamb rump with confit ratte potatoes, asparagus, French beans, roast fennel, cherry tomatoes and rosemary jus (£20). The quality is high even on the cheaper set menus.

Ambience: 

Tables are set over three floors with chandeliers twinkling from the red ceilings and the art is not for the easily offended. The live entertainment ranges from jazz singers to magicians – I am not usually a huge fan of entertainment while I eat but really enjoyed a recent singing performance. Not to be outshone by the surroundings, diners in Lounge 10 tend to dress to impress so follow their lead if you want to fit in.

Service: 

Staff are attentive and friendly.

Location: 

Tucked down a side street off Cross Street in the city centre, Lounge 10 is relatively hidden. Remember that the address is Tib Lane and not Tib Street (in the Northern Quarter) – Tib Street is much better known.

Price advice: 

Mains range from £14.50 to £27.50 but look out for some great offers like two courses for £10 and special set menus. The house wine is reasonable at £13.50 a bottle (and very drinkable).

Tables to book: 

I love the red leather cushioned seats against the wall so would try to bag one of these.
