1 year ago

You’ve surely noticed by now, a pink mist has descended over the UK. Valentine’s Day is on the way, but don’t stay home with an M&S meal deal this year – support your favourite local restaurants and take advantage of some great dining out offers.

From Valentine’s high tea, to taster menus and specially crafted cocktails, Manchester is awash with love.

Below you’ll find a collection of Manchester restaurants offering Valentine’s menus and offers that are way better than a floppy bunch of flowers from the supermarket.

    Book Now Manchester City Centre

    Grand Pacific

    Bars

    Grand Pacific is the work of Living Ventures and it easily outshines its sibling venues in terms of pure glamour. Not in a big chandeliers, glass and chrome Spinningfields way, but with a decadent blend of colonial Raffles-style grandeur and some of the best of the city’s Victorian architecture.

  • yard and coop fried chicken and chips NQ
    Northern Quarter

    Yard & Coop Manchester

    Bars

    We’d rather see a restaurant that does one thing well than one that does a wide variety of dishes to the same average standard. Yard & Coop Manchester is firmly in the former category. It serves buttermilk fried chicken and that’s about it, unless you’re a veggie in which case you can have halloumi instead.

    San Carlo Manchester

    Restaurant - Italian

    San Carlo is Manchester’s most famous and, some say, best Italian restaurant. Run by the Distefano family, it’s said to have one of the largest turnovers in the UK. It’s also the place to be papped and you’ll sometimes see a bank of photographers outside to prove the point.

  • Namii Kitchen and Cocktails is a Confidential Guides recommended Christmas party venue.
    Chinatown (Manchester)

    Namii Kitchen & Cocktails

    Bars

    It’s got neon, it’s got pastels, it’s got faux foliage, it’s got innovative cocktails and it’s got Pan Asian cuisine with a definite lean Vietnam-wards. It calls itself “authentically modern”, but faithful to the Vietnamese way of life, it recommends ordering food for the table, tapas style.
