All the March Manchester restaurant deals, discounts and offers you need in 2023

A number of Manchester restaurants are running 50% off deals this March - with plenty more discounts and offers on top.

Georgina Pellant Georgina Pellant - 2nd March 2023

This March, there are plenty of great Manchester restaurant and dining deals to get stuck into if you’re eating out on a budget (which, let’s be honest, most of us are).

Given that it’s such a tough time for hospitality, quite a few of the city’s bars, restaurants and cafes have decided to extend their food deals after seeing a huge upturn in business during January.

Whilst there are still great offers, we’re going to keep promoting them – and fortunately for us, there are some awesome set menus, lunch deals and general discounts going around.

From 50% off at Chakalaka, Firehouse and NQ favourite Trof, to £1 tacos, massive £2 hot dogs and lunch deals with a drink from £10, there are loads of great dining deals to get stuck into in Manchester this March.

Keep reading to discover the best Manchester restaurant deals, discounts and offers to try this month.
