Never pay full price for a meal again thanks to this website that’s just launched in Manchester


Saving up to buy a new couch with your room mates? Setting aside money to go on that holiday of your dreams? Desperately need that new clutch bag with the fur lining?

Well it’s time to stop whinging about how broke you are over a £30 bowl of pasta and a glass of £10 pinot to wash it down and cancel that meeting with your financial advisor because 5pm has launched in Manchester and could save shedloads on your meals out.

The guys at 5pm offer hundreds of deals at top Manchester restaurants. It’s free to book and free to cancel. So if you fancy an Indian at 5pm but change your mind to a Chinese at 6, that’s no problem.

And you can read up reviews of other people’s experiences, so it’s great for anyone who’s a little suspicious of pictures that look too good to be true. When we say too good to be true we mean the type of experience that has you ordering a fish pie and when it comes to your table it’s a stodgy mess and the fish seems to have swum away.

The Laundrette

The review feature will help you if you fancy trying somewhere new but don’t want to waste your time – and money. Sold? So are we.

Here’s a taster of the deals you can tuck into if you book via 5pm.
