Lively pub with a comfortable atmosphere. Plenty of seating. Didn't have food so can't comment. Have to be careful with price consistency with drinks as charge different prices for same drinks - one of the male barman with close cut beard. DJ Gem played some excellent music on the Saturday night

I wouldn't go to this establishment again. Not made to feel welcome at all. Spoken to in an appalling manner

Firstly, what did we expect from the place, I'll be honest, not much. What we did get, was good honest 'pub grub' done really well. Hey, this place isn't ever going to be a top notch restaurant, but what it does, it does well. The wife had a chip shop platter (a huge fish, chips, battered sausage, peas, chip shop... More

Have visited The Lost Dene on many occasions during our visits to Manchester and had always been very very satisfied with the service and the food, unfortunately during our New Year's visit to Manchester we were very disappointed... not with the food as we didn't actually get to eat there as the kitchen was 'closed' on the two occasions we...

We booked here for our office Christmas lunch. The limited choice Christmas menu is £11.99 for three courses. I can only speak about my meal which was excellent - Prawn Cocktail/Turkey/Xmas Pud. The service was good and the main course was served hot. The one real ale was cloudy and did not taste good but as I wasn't paying I... More

It is on the angle of Deansgate. It is big pub. I ate good and big dish, only one. I ate the mix grilled: rump steak, gammon steak, chicken fillet, Cumberland sausage and fried egg, served with chips, half a grilled tomato and peas. There are lot of beer of all country. Good service.

We were at the Christmas markets and wanted a sit down meal. This was near where we were and thought we would try it as we were very hungry. Lots of tables inside to choose from and was relatively quiet. We choose our food and ordered at the bar. I had the burger and chips deal with a drink for... More

The 2 for £9.49 offer caught our eye and this was a decent enough place for a quick dinner time break. It was pretty quiet so we had our choice of tables and didn't have to wait to be served. The friendly barmaid took our order of two steak pie, chips and peas. She told us it was Go Large... More

Management response:

Good afternoon, we appreciate your feedback and we take on board all of our customers comments, we will feedback to the kitchen on the food served to ensure this doesn't happen again. Although sadly we follow company specs for our food and the go large offered is just for the pie and not the other things presented on the plate,... More
