Established in 2010, The Gas Lamp is situated in the basement of Wood St Mission.
Founded by Alfred Alsop in 1879, Deansgate was then a narrow street and a squalid slum. Families were living in cramped houses with poor amenities. Many adults and even their children worked long hours in the numerous factories and mills around the city. Some were unable to secure employment and relied on the generosity of others to provide them with a meal for their families each day. The Mission served hundreds a meals a day to ensure the local people didn't go hungry.
Fastforward to modern day, our mission is slightly different to the ever charitable Alfred Alsop. We make it our goal to serve a wide range of fantastic drinks including craft ales, single malt whiskies and the best gins from all around the world.
