This is a regularly-updated list of restaurant vouchers, deals, and offers (for shopping, days out & more, see full Deals page).
We aim to ensure all vouchers can be used by everyone (unless stated). Most vouchers have restrictions, so check they're valid on the day you want to go, and present them before you order.
This voucher’s good if you’re planning to get mains, starters and/or desserts.
Register with VoucherCodes* and get a voucher for 40% off the food bill at Ask Italian for up to six people till Mon 26 Jan, excluding Saturdays.
It's available at all restaurants, apart from it excludes the Lichfield (Staffordshire) branch due to refurbishment on Mon 26 Jan. The voucher's valid at the restaurant you choose when registering.
If you’re just buying mains, you’re better off with going for the 50% off mains voucher (see below).
Register with Ask Italian to get a voucher for 50% off main courses for up to six people at all restaurants.
The offer's on till Wed 28 Jan, but the days and times it's valid vary by restaurant, so check your voucher. It's valid on main courses only and excludes specials, set menus, Menu del Giorno and kids' menu. It's only valid for the restaurant you choose when registering.
Order this 'Winter Survival' takeaway pizza deal from Domino’s* by 11.59pm on Sun 1 Feb to get a large pizza (norm up to £18.99), garlic pizza bread (up to £3.99), potato wedges (up to £3.99) and four doughnuts (up to £3.99) all for £14.99. Individual prices can vary by store, so we tried it at a few different UK locations and found savings of £10-£15. Available every day for collection or free delivery.
There’s no voucher - simply ask for the Winter Survival Deal* when you order over the phone or in store, or select it from the deals menu when ordering through the Domino’s website.
You can pick any pizza flavour, or create your own with up to four toppings, but if you add extras such as stuffed crusts you'll have to pay for them. If there’s more of you, choose Bigger Winter Survival Deal* and pay an additional £5 to add a medium pizza (norm up to £15.99).
If you've given up on 'dry January' already sign up online to Pitcher & Piano's newsletter (or if you're already signed up, see below) and you'll be sent a code for one free Bacardi Superior Mojito cocktail (usually £7ish) at any of its bars. You don't need to buy anything else to get the free drink, just note down the code or show on your smartphone.
If you're already signed up, Pitcher & Piano should have already sent you this offer. If you haven’t seen it, check your inbox or spam box or sign up again and it’ll resend you the offer.
You can opt for a free soft drink instead. It's valid at all 18 Pitcher & Piano bars until Thu 29 Jan. The bars are mostly located in England, with one in Swansea, south Wales. Use this link to find your nearest bar. Please be Drinkaware.
Why not get 50% off the food bill while you’re at it?
There's another offer (with a different code) on the same voucher for 50% off your food bill for up to four people. This is an entirely separate deal and if you want it you'll need to also show this code (noted down or on smartphone).
Can't get the deal?
A few people are having technical issues getting the codes. We've been in touch with Pitcher and Piano, but haven't heard back yet. In the meantime, try it and see if it works for you.
Order two main courses at Carluccio's and get the cheapest one free until Mon 9 Feb. Simply register with Vouchercloud* and either print the voucher or show it on your smartphone at the restaurant.

Register with PizzaExpress and get a voucher for 40% off your food bill between Mon-Thu and after 5pm Sun, until Sun 1 Feb.

Waitrose has told us that six stores (Bedford, Hitchin, Exeter, Weston-super-Mare, Nailsea and Chester) are trialing a scheme whereby free drinks are only available at the normal cafe till to customers who are buying a food item as well. However, you can still get your free drink (with no strings attached) by using the self-service machine.
If you fancy a bit of 'cloak and dagger' identity, mystery shopping can be great fun. My partner and I did it at university and dined out on gratis grub about twice a month - it was a great way to treat ourselves when money was tight.
Stick to the budget you're given and you dine out for nowt, or if you fancy spending a bit more, you can treat it as a discount. The reports take about an hour to write, and I recommend completing it the same evening so you don't forget any of the details.

Simply walk into any Table Table restaurant and get one free main for a kid (usually £3.99) when an adult orders from the main restaurant menu. The offer runs every Mon-Fri and you must be seated before 5pm.
We got in touch with Table Table and it said although it doesn't have an age restriction for the child, the kids menu is suitable for up to 12-year-olds. There's no limit to the number of kids per table, but it's one free kids meal per adult - so if there's two adults, two kids go free.
Table Table is a chain of pubs with 100+ branches in the UK. Use its pub finder to see if there's one near you.
Every Sunday, buy an adult carvery (£7.29) at Crown Carveries, and get a kids' smaller one (usually £4.29, for little 'uns under 10) for free. This means a family of two adults and two children get both kids' meals free.

When an adult orders a main meal (£4.50-£10ish) at any Flaming Grill pub, up to four children (aged 12 or under) can get a 'Build your meal' main from the kids menu for £1 each every Thu 3pm-7pm. These meals usually cost £2.99 so you're saving £2 per child.
There's no max number of children per table as long as there's one adult per four children - so if there’s two adults, up to eight children can eat for £1. Kids can upgrade to a mighty meal for an additional £1 per child, making the meal £2 in total.
