Top value tapas, mountains of prawns and bottomless everything

It’s been a long time since they were last unleashed in article form, September 2020 to be exact, but we can now officially toast their return. The deals are back. More deals than you can shake a stick at. Mountains of prawns, a bottomless abyss of pizza and a one-pound wing night all make an appearance in this month’s round-up.

You will also be happy to know that there are lunch deals, somewhat softening the return to the office and providing an alternative to your sad, sad Pret. The same themes apply though, deals are usually hotter earlier in the week and all are subject to availability. So whether you’re looking for a cheeky mid-week evening treat or you fancy filling your sushi boots, go forth and feast for less.

Here are our recommended dining deals for the month. 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.
