This is a fairly nice, modern pub in the centre of Manchester. They have TVs up showing various sports. They have a wider-than-usual selection of drinks for a pub, my friend was especially pleased that they had Kraken rum available. he prices were not too bad either considering it's city centre - five drinks (2 lagers, a cider, a rum...

Out with friends and met up here before going for something to eat. Bottle of wine from under £8.00, a round of drinks for 4 for under £16.00, compared to lots of places in Manchester this is very good value. They also serve food at reasonable prices & you can get 2 meals for under £10.00 This place gets busy... More

We called in The Lost Dene a couple of times while on a weekend in Manchester. The have plenty of great offers on both food and drink. We had a bottle of house which for £7.95 was spot on. We also popped back later and had the £5.99 meal deal which included a drink. We both had pie, chips and... More

I have a great fondness for The Lost Dene, and from the number of low budget inner city pubs along Deansgate, it is the best! Personally, I have never had a bad night here. Well, unless I include Chelsea beating FC Bayern in the Champions League Final in 2012, then that would be considered a bad night! :/ However, I... More

Visited here one Friday lunch time. Had the cod and chips offer for £6.99. First thing I noticed were that the table was sticky. Good sign.... When the food came the cod was piping hot but the chips were luke warm / cold. My friend had the same problem. Hot pie cold chips. Will go to wetherspoons next time...

Having just moved to the area I popped in here a couple of weeks ago when passing with friends and was surprised at the service from a city centre pub. The staff were very polite and helpful, food was great and really cheap as well which was surprising. Great variety of drinks available at the bar with the staff letting... More

We went to The Lost Dene 1/7/2016 we ordered our food and we really shouldn't have bothered. The portions were very small to say the least maybe the portion size befitting a three year old. Not only we're the portions small but were luke warm. The service at the bar was efficient and toilets ok. We won't be going.
