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

Just your typical pub. Selection of seats and drinks. They also have a few TV screens where you can watch football during the weekend.

Have been in here a few times for the lunchtime deals during my lunch hour. The food has always been good. Nothing amazing but pretty much what you would expect from standard pub grub. The service has always been prompt and friendly and for £5-8 for a meal and a pint there is really nothing to complain about. Will happily... More

I went to the Lost Dene with my work colleagues during our lunch time as we dont work too far away from it. We came as a group of four. We waited for almost 40 minutes for our food to come out - and when it eventually turned up only 3 orders came out. We asked for the fourth order... More

Modern pub on Manchester's Deansgate. Conveniently situated close to attractions and other pubs. Good drink choice and reasonable priced food available. Good pub for sports fans.

Shocking food quality! Would not eat there for free. Quite Nice sport atmosphere but that is it. Burger was terrible. Nothing more to add.
