Save on eating out

Ways to save on eating out at restaurants:

      • Vouchers – look on vouchercloud or sign up for the restaurant’s newsletter before visiting.

      • Social media – local restaurants are getting in on the act so look out for weekly specials and local discounts on Facebook. Most larger chains have a presence on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

      • Eating out mid week or early at the weekend can lead to big savings. Look out for early bird or daytime menus which are often served until 6 or 6:30pm.

      • Carvery restaurants and all you can eat often offer the best value. Check out Toby Carvery and Crown Carveries.

      • Book online to make big savings on eating out and get a table at peak times. Try Bookatable or Opentable.

      • Save dessert until you get home, get a cheesecake or gateau in ready for your return.

Ways to save on eating out at fast food/takeaways:

    • Order online at Just Eat or Hungry Horsejust enter your post code and food type and a list of takeaways that deliver to you will appear. You can select from the menu and pay online. Go on one of the cashback websites first to get cash back each time you use the Just Eat. Pizza Hut and Dominos Pizza also have online ordering.

    • Nip out to your local supermarket and get an Indian, Oriental or Italian takeaway pack you can heat in the microwave or oven. Many packs come with starters or sides and are usually quite tasty and much cheaper than a takeaway place.

    • Save flyers that come through your door as many have offers or discounts with a minimum spend. Make sure you mention this when you make the order.

    • Look out for M&S dine in for 2 which costs £10, you usually get a nice bottle of wine, main, side dish and dessert. Recently they have done a large posh pizza and a bottle but still good value. Tesco and Waitrose do these deals sometimes so worth getting in when you see them come up.

    • Save on eating out by staying in with a fab fakeaway, it might take you a little longer and defeat the object of the takeaway but loads of people have given it a go and loved it. If you find an easy recipe you can have it done in the time a takeaway takes to arrive and will probably cost you under a fiver to make. Food for thought!
