Dine out for less in Manchester with these great deals from itison


Adam Reid at The French is undoubtedly one of Manchester’s top restaurants. In fact, it’s one of the best in the country. 

Last September The French made number 11 in The Good Food Guide’s top 50 restaurants in the UK. It offers “refined technique and a distinctive northern sensibility,” said the guide.”

It has 4 prestigious AA Rosettes, which only 44 restaurants in the UK have, and last year chef patron Adam was a winner on the BBC’s Great British Menu.

With itison’s exclusive offer, you can enjoy three delicious courses, a glass of English sparkling wine to enjoy with your meal, and coffee and chocolates to finish – all for £99 per couple.

The vouchers are valid until the end of March, excluding 11th-15th February, and you can get lunch on Fridays and Saturdays, or an early dinner from Tuesday to Thursday.


And that’s not the only great deal itison is offering right now. 

Perhaps a country pub with 2 AA Rosettes is more your style? Step forward The Church Green in Lymm, run by acclaimed celebrity chef Aiden Byrne. 

For £45 you can either opt for a chateaubriand for two, served with beef dripping chips, tomato, mushroom, watercress and herb butter; or a four course tasting menu for two with a cocktail each on arrival.

The voucher is valid until mid-March and you can either sit inside the restaurant by the roaring fire, or in the nicer weather head out the garden and large decked area to soak up the sun and take in the beautiful setting.


Or at Oddfellows On The Park, a stunning venue set within a beautiful Victorian mansion in Cheadle, you could go for a tasting menu for two including a glass of prosecco each – and a wine flight too if you wish – for £79.

Dishes might include mushroom with cep parfait, oat and black garlic followed by braised oxtail, consommé and carrot. Cod with black peas, celeriac chips and whitebait might be next, followed by lamb rump neck with artichoke and charred lemon.

Puddings include the likes of malted custard tart with date and ale sorbet.


Or are Vietnamese small plates more your style? From just £10 you can try cocktails for two at Nam in foodie hotspot Ancoats, with the option to add on Vietnamese street food dishes such as summer rolls with pork and prawn or mango and red pepper, or marinated crispy chicken wings with a choice of glazes. 


You can also save up to 51% on three or six small plates to share between two with a cocktail each at Viet Shack, also in Ancoats. 

From £18 there’s a choice of cocktails from the Saigon Sally, Mo-Vieto or Communist Cosmo, with dishes including flat iron steak in 48hr Vietnamese marinade, mixed grilled Asian mushrooms with infused lime and garlic oil, or charred Asian broccoli with spicy peanut-butter sauce or sweet chilli sauce.


Other offers currently running include two courses with wine from £18 at 24 Bar & Grill on Princess Street.


Or try the discounted pizza and prosecco at newcomer Eden, or tapas dishes to share with wine, cava or sangria at Spanish favourite La Bandera.


It’s the perfect chance to try somewhere new, for less than you might think.
