We are looking at booking the Manchester lounge, but have read different reports. Some say food and drink are included in the price, others say they are extra. Has anyone been there who would like to let us know what it's like? Thank you.

Hi Annie, I've used both the Aspire lounge and Escape lounge at terminal 1. Both have free food and drink included but it's nothing very fancy. EG breakfast is sausage/bacon baps, porridge, other cereal, pastries. After 11am I think there's soup and sandwiches, cakes, biscuits etc.
I wouldn't book it based on the food choices personally, but I like a couple of glasses of wine or G&Ts and the cost of a lounge becomes worth it for a sandwich/bap and some fruit, biscuits etc. and 2/3 drinks. The last time I had a large wine in a bar at Manchester it was about £7.50. I prefer Aspire purely because there are large windows overlooking the gates. Escape I believe has better food choice but no windows.
I like to use them as at times the main airport can be rammed with people and difficult to get served and seated in the eateries. At other times it's no problem at all.
I would just say don't expect an executive type VIP experience because it's not, but it is away from the hustle and bustle (which a lot of people like anyway as part of the holiday experience).
