Chorlton bar Elecktrik knows that Monday’s are never the best day of the week – you’ve spent all your money at the weekend and you’re tired from the first day back in the office. To do their bit, they offer Pizza Punch-Up with every pizza just £5 all day each Monday. With over 10 ten inch pizzas to choose from, you’ll find something in this pocket protecting promotion.
Another bar trying to make the start of the week just a little bit better is Common with their special 2 for 1 deal on burgers for members on Tuesdays. It may be a deal exclusive to those in the Common club but there’s not some huge joining fee – it’s absolutely free and you get immediate access to the deal which also includes 10% off beer every single day.
A midweek special from newish restaurant Mamucium is perfect for those with a meat hankering. For just shy of £50, two diners can get beef wellington, two sides, two sauces and two glasses of wine. Situated in the restaurant at the bottom of Hotel Indigo at Victoria Station, the £49.95 deal is available every Wednesday only and booking is required.
Another deal for those with a red meat fetish – one of the latest restaurants in Urmston’s foodie revolution, Astoria, offers a three day deal on their steak. From Tuesday to Thursday diners in the Trafford suburb can enjoy two steaks and a bottle of wine for just £25. That’s just £12.50 each or £25 for one very hungry steak lover. For those with a desire for veg, Tuesday to Friday sees their lunch deal from noon – 4pm with two courses for £12.
The South African inspired restaurant on Oldham Street just down from Gullivers has been quietly offering decent sized food for a decent price for a while now and its lunch deal is perhaps the best time to test it out. For under £5 diners can get a hot dog and a drink from Mon – Fri until 4pm. If you want to make that a bit bigger, add a quid and you get fries too. Veggie and meat options are available.
For the vegetarians and vegans feeling a bit left out after some meat heavy offerings, The Northern Quarter’s El Capo has got a deal to sate you. For just £16 per person, you get 3 tapas, 3 vegan tacos, a vegan burrito AND a bottle of house wine. That’s enough to fill anyone up and set you up for the last day of work. Offer is available Thursdays only.
Just off St Ann’s Square, late night bar Sandanista is no stranger to offering plenty of deals and this continues throughout November. If you’re saving your pennies but still keen to be out as much as possible you can get free pinchos until 9pm every Friday with any drink, bottomless wings for £10 on a Wednesday or Saturday day-time will get you 3 tapas and a sangria for £20.
Peru Perdu is the latest restaurant to take over the space previously occupied by El Camino at the Cotton Factory. The Whitworth Locke kitchen space is intended to be used by a continually rotating cast of kitchens and now welcomes the Peruvian inspired restaurant. One of Peru Perdu’s first points of order was to get a bottomless brunch on the menu and they’ve nailed it with one small plate, one large plate and all the booze you can handle for £30. Offer is available from 10-5pm on Saturdays.
If you’re looking for somewhere to impress without completely breaking the bank, you could do worse than High Tea at Grand Pacific. For £23, the Spring Gardens restaurant has options of sweet, savoury, meat and vegetarian high teas featuring various options including crumpet with lobster butter, chocolate truffle and much more. You can upgrade to a seasonal cocktail for just £6 and champagne for £7.
There aren’t many better ways to round off a weekend then at one of King Street’s finest restaurants. El Gato, the Michelin Bib Gourmand rated restaurant offers a special sharing platter every Sunday from just £25 for the vegetarian option and £28 for the meat. The platter, which is available only on Sundays, features a changing selection of the best the tapas restaurant has to offer. Booking suggested.
