Monday: 50% off Food
Monday’s are pretty depressing, and that is a fact. I know you’ll be tempted to polish off a couple bottles of wine whilst trying to remember the weekend’s antics, crying Bridget Jones-style, but that isn’t the way to relieve your Monday blues – I speak from experience. Instead of weeping into a sad takeaway – pop down to the Black Dog and enjoy 50% off all food. From classic Manchester burgers to artisan pizzas, Black Dog is guaranteed to satisfy your taste buds.
Tuesday: Pizza Twosdays
Who doesn’t love pizza? And, who doesn’t love pizza that little bit more, if that’s mathematically possible when it comes in at half price? Every Tuesday at Black Dog, you can tuck into 2-4-1 pizzas, so they come in at around £6 each. What’s not to love? Chow down on classic toppings like pepperoni or mushroom, or step into the unknown with more adventurous toppings such as the cheeseburger or my personal favourite, the Salt & Pepper Chicken – basically the best thing at a Chinese takeaway, on a pizza.
Wednesday: Free Pool
Unleash your inner Paul Newman, or rather don yourself a snazzy waistcoat and channel the John Virgo inside of you to take full advantage of Black Dog’s Free Pool Wednesday’s. They’re famed throughout the city as some of the best places to play a bit of billiards, so why not get involved and knock a few chunks of resin around a bit of felt while chatting bubbles with your mates over a few wet ones. All you need to do is buy a drink (or round) and you’ll get a free hour of pool. Easy peasy.
Monday – Friday: Happy Hour
There’s nothing better than finishing a depressing day at work with a few swift ones – and it’s even better when it’s cheap. That’s why Black Dog is always a winner – their Happy Hour runs from 4pm – 8pm every week day – with selected cocktails for £4, Corona, Asahi & Camden Pale for £3, Bottles of House Wine for £10 and Jagerbombs for £2.50. Lovely stuff.
Saturday & Sunday: Bottomless Brunch
Sure, you are feeling slightly fuzzy-headed by now, but did you know that the only scientifically proven cure for a hangover is painkillers, breakfast food and more booze? That’s a fact. Between 12-4pm on Saturday and Sunday, you can tuck into any dish form the brunch menu and bottomless selected drinks from £25. I will always go for the chicken and bacon waffle smothered in maple syrup and enough Prosecco to sink the HMS Belfast. There are some fantastic VEGAN options here too (just in case you’re off the meat and diary).
