From wine tasting with tiramisu to free piña coladas and a Japanese sci-fi themed set menu

Can you believe it's July already? The longest day has been and gone and some restaurants are already sending out their Xmas menu (really). 

But before we have to go back to months of 'creative ways with sprouts', let's enjoy some summery dining deals, even if a beer garden is not always an option. We've diligently put together a list of some of the best deals around for you. As usual, they’re all handily broken down into suggested days.  

Of course, there's always our trusty app - free to download and with up to 60% off at some of the region's best restaurants.
