Manchester is a generous city when it comes to dining deals. Following the monumental list of offers that we dropped in January, and February’s impressive round-up of deals, it makes sense to share the love with another round up of bargain dinners for March. 

Many of the deals are available at lunch time, perfect if you’re after a mid-week treat in the city centre. The Blues Kitchen has a meal deal to skip the supermarkets for and if you’ve had a particularly bad morning in the office, head to Nell’s pizza between 12-4pm for a discounted 14-incher. 

There are cheap drinks deals too, with plenty of Manchester restaurants offering bottomless and happy hour specials, and since most bars are nice and warm, it might even be cheaper than putting the heating on.

Read on for our round-up of the best dining deals in Manchester this March.
