Our list of top dining offers at Manchester restaurants this month

Despite stricter rules in place for everyone, a restaurant is still one of the most hygienic places you can visit. So stick to your household or support bubble and show some support for your favourite indie restaurants. They’re bending over backwards to comply with ever changing rules, curfews, masks and apps while they try and rebuild some of the damage that Covid has done. 

As always, we’ve put together our monthly list of deals and discounts but if you can afford to, balance the saving by spending a bit more on tips or drinks, it’s sure to be appreciated more than ever.

Here are a cur-few of our favourite dining deals for the month of October.  

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.
