Our list of non-government-funded dining offers at Manchester restaurants this month
Toot toot toot tooooooot! It’s the return of our monthly restaurant deals feature. Sunak's Eat Out To Help Out gave restaurants a welcome boost in custom but with the Government initiative coming to an end, you can still get some bargains at your favourite restaurants.
Some are, they say, 'extending' their EOTHO offering (but it's important to note that restaurants are taking the cost on the chin themselves this time) while others have different special offers available. With this in mind, many of the new deals are heavily weighted towards early in the week.
As always, be nice to the staff, spend money on drinks and leave a generous tip if you can afford to. Restaurants are really struggling right now and they need your support, big time.
Here are our recommended dining deals for the month.
Of course, there's always the OG, our trusty app - free to download and with up to 60% off at some of the region's best restaurants.
