Treat yourself to a cheaper meal out with our curated daily eating out deals

Summertime, when the eating out (for cheaper) is easy. Menus are changing, and the prices are high. Plenty to dig into on the deals front this month with everything from cut-price roasts and Sunday steak deals to pre-theatre set menus and tenner food and beer combos.

Said deals become even more enticing with the prospect of sunshine cameos and warm evenings sitting outside. Of course there’ll be a bit of rain, but even torrential summer showers are easier to forgive when you’ve just stepped out of a place doing an extremely good value for money £1 hotdog. Go forth and feast.

Here's a list of our recommended eating-out offers for the month of May. As usual, they’re all handily broken down into suggested days. You're welcome. 

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.
