Pens down! Studying is officially over and graduation season is upon us. That’s right. After months of hard work and revision, it’s finally time to celebrate the end of education and take your first steps into the world of work and real-life responsibilities. Don’t worry though – there’s still one big blow out to enjoy. In fact, there’s loads of graduation 2019 food and drink offers at Manchester restaurants and bars to be found if you look hard enough. Here’s a few of the best…

Wood Manchester
First Street restaurant Wood would like nothing more than to help you celebrate all your hard work paying off – that’s why they’ve whipped up a dedicated graduation menu featuring three courses, a complimentary glass of fizz, chef Simon Wood’s signature snacks, bread and petit fours all for just £27.50. Book your table by calling 0161 236 5211 and quoting ‘GRADUATION’.

Celebrate your success in style by dining under the picturesque cherry blossom tree at Spinningfield favourite Tattu. Graduates can make their day extra memorable by ordering one of the venue’s signature cocktails too. Will you go for the smoking Skull Candy, featuring vodka infused with bubblegum and strawberry or are you more of a Tiger Lily person, preferring sloe gin, pineapple, jasmine, blueberry and coconut foam? The choice is yours. Head here to book a table.

Turtle Bay
Popular Caribbean spot Turtle Bay is offering graduates a free cocktail to toast their success this graduation season. To claim your free drink, all friends, family and university alumni have to do is download the Turtle Bay app, book a table and spend £20 or more on food. This deal is available until Fri 19 Jul and proof of ID will be required on arrival.

James Martin Manchester
Book a table at James Martin Manchester between 4pm-10pm from Mon 8 – Thu 25 Jul, and graduates will be able to enjoy two courses for £20, three courses for £25 and a free Prosecco to help get the party started. To claim this offer, simply quote ‘Graduation19’ when reserving your table.

The free booze for graduates keeps on flowing at King Street restaurant Rosso. They’ll be offering ex-students a complimentary bottle of Veuve Clicquot when they book to dine with them in July – a drink that’s world away from the cheap booze that fuelled their Uni years. Head here to book your table.

The Ivy
Spinningfield’s The Ivy is offering graduates the chance to indulge in a selection of champagne cocktails (£11-£12) and afternoon tea (£18.95) when they book a table before Wed 31 Jul. This tasty offer will be available to enjoy on either the venue’s ornate brasserie or fancy roof garden, each adding a little extra flair to the occasion. Simply visit their website to book your table.

After you’ve done the fancy celebratory meal with the family, why not keep the graduation party going over at DiveNQ. They’ll be offering alumni a dissertation’s worth of freebees, including free glasses of Prosecco, free shots for all booth bookings and free Prosecco pong tables and two Prosecco bottles for all snug bookings. Get involved here.

After something a little fancier? If you’re lucky enough to snag a table, you can enjoy a complimentary graduation cocktail at popular city-centre restaurant 20Stories this July. What’s more, you’ll also be able to revel in your success whilst soaking in some unrivalled views of the city. Go on, you’ve earned it.

The Lowry Hotel
Celebrate your Uni success at The Lowry Hotel and you’ll be able to bag yourself a free glass of Prosecco to enjoy while you and your family tuck into a glorious afternoon tea package boasting stunning views overlooking the River Irwell and a built in photo opportunity.

So there you have it. When it comes to graduation 2019 food and drink offers in Manchester’s restaurants, you really are spoiled for choice. All that’s left to do now is eat. Enjoy!
