To say spring has sprung might be a stretch, but it is certainly brighter outside. We’re celebrating the longer evenings with some midweek wining and dining, and have sleuthed around for 10 great food offers to take advantage of this April. From craft brew house Seven Bro7hers’ beer and a burger deal, to Albatross and Arnold’s small plates with wine offer. Deansgate Italian, Cibo, give you money off your bill from Monday to Friday, and Tampopo’s reasonably priced express menu might be the perfect mid-week lunch break treat.

Albatross & Arnold’s wine and small plates
Spinningfields’ restaurant Albatross & Arnold opened its doors at the end of 2018 above Manchester’s first urban golf club, The Range. As good as, or better than hitting a hole-in-one is their latest food offer of two small plates and a side from their menu, with a glass of wine for £17. Dishes include Lancashire blue cheese ‘bon bons’ and roasted pigeon breast. Offer runs Monday to Sunday 11am-11pm.
