From 50% off pizza to free desserts and even unlimited wine, we've found you a month's worth of dining deals

So you've spent all your money on Bank Holiday jaunts and are now facing up to a month of homemade butties and yellow sticker lunches. It needn't be this way. Look hard enough and you'll find plenty of places to eat out on a budget in Manchester, from £1 tacos to BOGOF burgers and three courses for less than a tenner.

Below we've made the whole thing a breeze by breaking down these bargains over the course of the week, meaning you've got a number of options each day.
