As quick as Summer arrived, it seemed to disappear into torrential rain but thankfully it seems the sun might yet force its way through and there’ll be plenty of excuses to go searching for the best food and drink in Manchester. Luckily, we’ve also searched out the best deals for the month of August and we’ve gathered them all together in a handy list. Check it out below.

Alberts Schloss 50% off

Continuing for another month is Schloss’ half price weekday breakfast deal. Not just a late night, dance on the tables place, Alberts Schloss opens at 8am Monday-Friday and serves breakfast up until 11.30am. The legendary Cruffins and mammoth Royal Breakfasts are now at £2 and £6 respectively until the end of the month. Booking is required to take advantage of the deal Mon-Fri.

Erst Lunchtime

Erst, the latest venture from Levenshulme and Ancoats bakers Trove, has a special lunchtime offer. Everyday from 1pm-4pm you can get a steak with anchovy dressing or beetroot flatbread with a glass of wine for a crisp £10 note from their Ancoats restaurant, erst. With their sibling Trove being known for their bread and baked goods, you can be sure that their flatbread is going to be more than enough for a midday pick me up. Wed-Sun, 10am-4pm.

erst., 9 Murray Street, Manchester M4 5BN, Tel: 0161 826 3008
Bunny Jackson’s 10p Wings and 50p Hot Dogs

Dive bar and rock ‘n’ roll joint Bunny Jacksons embraces its American influences with a range of wings of varying spiciness and hot dogs on offer all day long. If you order a drink you can also order as many wings at 10p as you can handle, while those drinking until late can order hot dogs from the bar for just 50p after the kitchen has closed. Enough to keep you on an even keel through until the late hours.

Bunny Jackson’s, 1 Jack Rosenthal Street, Manchester, M15 4RA
Fress Crumpets and Coffee for £3.50

Another cheap breakfast deal as Oldham Street’s Fress are offering the simple but filling croissants and any hot drink for just £3.50 every morning. Two freshly homemade crumpets alongside a tea or coffee for shy of £4 is as quick and cheap a breakfast as you can get around the Northern Quarter.

Fress, 62 Oldham Street, Manchester M4 1LE, Tel: 0161 236 0856
BOGOF burger Common every Tuesday

Members at Common have probably been aware of it for a while but if you’re not, get yourself signed up and receive a free burger with every one you buy on a Tuesday. Having not long ago relaunched their menu, it’s a good time to get trying it out with a pal, or ensuring that you’ve got enough food to last you through the Common cocktails. Tuesdays only.

Common, 39-41 Edge Street, Manchester M4 1HW, Tel: 0161 832 9245
The Reel Deal Home

One of the oldest food and drink deals in the city keeps ticking by as HOME’s Reel Deal remains on the menu. Offering a choice of any film, any stonebaked pizza, and either a house wine or a pint of Dortmunder Vier (or a soft drink if you want to keep your senses sharp for the film) for £16.50 on Mondays and Tuesdays, it’s a whole date night for under £20 each. As the premiere arts cinema in the area, there’s a wide choice of possible films from big budget to indie. The deal excludes any special events running at HOME and has to be booked in person or by phone.

HOME, 1 Tony Wilson Place, M15 4FN, Tel: 0161 200 1500
TNQ Unlimited Wine

Another old staple of the Manchester food and drink scene, TNQ’s 3 courses and unlimited wine deal is still going strong. For just shy of £30 diners can get three courses from the set menu and as much wine as you can drink over the meal. It’s as much a test of your weeknight restraint as it as a rest for your wallet. Mondays and Thursdays only.

TNQ, 108 High Street, Manchester M4 1HQ, Tel: 0161 832 7115
Sugo Friday Lunch Deal

Whether you’re in the centre of town or on one end of the Metrolink, Sugo have you covered on a Friday lunchtime. For £15 you can get a glass of house wine or house lager, plus a pasta, a salad and a coffee to keep you going through until the evening. The House Sugo beef shin is even on the menu though requires a bargain £2 supplement per diner. Fridays noon-2pm.

Gorilla Happy Hour

A favourite of many a worker down Oxford Road, Gorilla’s Happy Hour is more than enough to help you forget the stress of the day. From 5-8pm every weekday their cocktails are just £5 whilst a carafe of house wine comes in at £10. With a carefully crafted selection of cocktails with musical names – a favourite is New York I Love You (But You’re Turning Me Sour) it can get rather busy in an evening, but if you grab a seat it’s worth settling in. Mon-Fri 5pm-8pm.

Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street, Manchester M1 5WW, Tel: 0161 826 2998
Pre-Theatre Dinner at Mr Cooper’s

Whether you’re off to see a show or not, you can enjoy two courses at Mr Cooper’s in The Midland Hotel for £16 or three courses for £20. Obviously, we’d recommend going for the three and that way you can get the smoked ham hock with black pudding as well as the caramel tart with a pork loin in the middle of it all. Vegetarian options are available too, of course. Offer is available Mon-Sat from 5-6.30pm.

Mr Cooper’s, 16 Peter Street, Manchester M60 2DS, Tel: 0161 235 4781
