We’re so close to the comforting sounds of cans cracking in the park as you sprawl across the grass with your best pals. Although alfresco dining might not yet be on the cards, Manchester restaurants have got some hard to refuse dining offers for April. The discounts span everything from loaded shawarmas in Levenshulme to £10 bowls of pasta and even 50% off cheese and wine evenings at Simon Wood’s flagship First Street restaurant, WOOD

As always, we’ve tried to incorporate as many of the city’s best lunch and evening offers as we possibly can. Money’s tight at the minute – we get it – but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a well-deserved discounted treat. We’re sure many of the businesses on this list would appreciate your custom just as much, too.
