Celebrate all things merry and bright with some deals and discounts at your favourite eating out spots

What've you got on your Xmas list this year? A bike? A puppy? Something shiny that comes in a very small box? What about a selection of eating out offers, deals and discounts that are all handily broken down into the days of the week? 

Well, if the latter was on the top of your list for the big man himself, Manchester Confidential have got it all here for you with a big red bow on top. Think fondue and unlimited vino, lunch for a tenner, and pints of Bloody Mary with a whole pizza for just over a fiver. We know, we spoil you, but it's the most wonderful time of the year and all that jazz. Go out and stuff your face whilst saving a few pennies.

This month we've also featured a couple of drinks deals, just because it's Christmas. 

Here's a list of our recommended eating-out offers for the month of December, and they’re all handily broken down into suggested days. 

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