Eat out for less throughout the month of September

Well that’s summer done then. No more bank holidays for a while, the kids back in school and Christmas gear creeping into the shops (disgraceful, where’s the decorum?). Seasons may change but the deals remain and this month there’s still loads of corkers, with plenty of opportunities to eat foodstuffs for under a tenner.

September sees two for one tasting menus, £25 small plates combo deals, free pizza (with a drink) and lunch deals galore, not to mention a sprinkling of drinks and scran combi offers. The summer may have passed and the sun may be gearing up for a sneaky exit but we’ll always be here to soften the blow with sweet, sweet eating out discounts.

Here's a list of our recommended eating-out offers for the month of September, and 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.
