If you’ve been hibernating over January, we’ve got everything you need to return to Manchester’s vibing food and drink scene in 2019.

Two-for-one 7-course tasting menu for £69 at Wood on Thursdays
Wood had a very special January offer: two for one on the seven course tasting menu. That means that two of you can enjoy Wood’s fine dining menu for £69 on Thursday’s throughout February (though those looking for it on Valentine’s Day will see it moved to the 13th). For those who do want the tasting menu on the 14th, the normal price will apply but will include a glass of fizz on arrival and petit fours to finish.

Beer and kebab for £12 at Bab
Just below Honey Trap, Bab is also getting in on the offers this February. On Monday to Friday you can grab yourself a beer and a kebab for just £12. They’re a bit more upmarket than your late night options so this is only available at respectable hours of 4-7pm. If you’re hankering for a kebab to show your true love, then you can order the Bab special 72 hours in advance for £36 which contains a 4oz dry aged beef, truffle roulade, celeriac, and plenty more kebab for your cash.

Free cocktail when you pick up a loyalty card at 19 Cafe Bar
If you’ve been looking longingly at your Cafe Nero card wondering why you can’t get the same deal everytime you want a slightly stronger drink, then look no further than 19 Cafe Bar on Lever Street. Not only will they give you a free cocktail after you’ve ordered 10 (not all on the same night), they’ll get you started with a free one just for picking up the card! If you just want the cocktails a bit cheaper, 3-7pm sees all cocktails at 2 for £10.
