[@]Eating Out? Our Manchester Recommendations
After spending a couple of hours trying to count how many food serving places there are, simply in Manchester's centre square mile, we got bored (we gave up at over 250).
The fact is there are a huge number of restaurants, cafes, take-aways, pubs, bars and streetfood hawkers vying for your breakfast, lunch and dinner money.
Presented with such a wealth of choice the Unlock Manchester team have created a list of some of our favourites ranging from delis to restaurants with some pricing guidance. Basically if you can't find anything you like in here you should be cooking...
Food & Drink OffersWe also like deals and offers when looking for somewhere to eat, after a long day. If you are going to a show you will find lots of pre-theatre packages with food and drink for to enjoy.
Check out our listings from eateries across Manchester of some the current special offers.
