Oh yes, it's back! Our ultimate guide to (probably) every restaurant offer in Manchester this January

Written by  The Confidentials | Follow @ | Monday, 26 December 2016 00:01

JANUARY can be a drag. It’s cold, you’re broke and, wait, *RIIIIP*… you’ve just torn a ruddy great hole in the arse of your favourite jeans.

Well, sod it, because, for January at least, the going is still good.

Here we’ve pulled together the most definitive guide to good food on a budget you’re likely to find in any city anywhere.

100, yes one bloody hundred Manchester restaurants, pubs, cafes, diners, whatever are pulling out all the stops to make sure you stay in loose pants and, more importantly, they stay in business this January (and if you think January is rough, you should try being a restaurateur).

So save the scrimping 'til February, it's a crap month anyhow.

(All listed deals were correct at the time of publishing. Please contact the individual venue for full T&Cs)
