By Manchester's Finest | January 24th '23

Christmas is over and the long month of January is about to unfurl before us like a leftover roll of Xmas gift wrap. It may be cold, it may be gloomy and all the Xmas decs may be boxed up for another year but one good thing about January is restaurant deals. Every year, we round up all the best Manchester January dining deals and stick them in a handy article for you to refer to when you need something to look forward to. There’s half price, BOGOF and all kinds of offers in Manchester’s restaurants this year, it would be rude not to snap them up, and we all know cheaper dinner means you can buy more booze. Dry who?

Read on for the best of Manchester’s January dining deals.
