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.
Simply walk into any Sizzling Pubs from Mon-Fri and get two selected main meals for either £6.50, £7 or £8 depending on the branch. For a full list of available mains, see below. You could save between £1-4.50ish depending on what you choose and the restaurant.
This is an ongoing offer. It's worth noting if you order an odd number of meals included in the offer (three meals or more), the cheapest will be in the deal. For example, if you order three qualifying meals, the cheapest two will be used for the promotion.
Register online with Ember Inns and get a voucher that gets you £5 off a £20+ spend. The discount will be taken off main menu food and drink, as long as there's at least one main meal ordered from the main menu. It's valid at any restaurant Mon-Thu until 29 Jan 2015. You can only use one voucher per bill and table.
If you are an existing customer, you can sign up again to get this voucher.
Register with VoucherCodes* and get 30% off food at most Strada restaurants till Tue 30 Dec.
It's valid for up to six people, but be careful, as it excludes all Saturdays and all days between Sun 21- Sun 28 Dec and Wed 31 Dec . It also excludes some branches altogether – they’re listed below.
Excludes all Center Parcs restaurants, as well as the following London locations:
Can't be used with any other offer, voucher, set, specials, or lunch menu. Also excludes Tesco Clubcard tokens, plus takeaway orders.
Simply walk into a Harvester any day of the week and you’ll get a selected main, unlimited salad and soft drink, plus a Sunday Best sundae for £9.99.
The unlimited salad is usually free when you buy a main meal but with some of the mains hitting £9 alone, you can save up to £5 with this offer.
Choose between six mains, plus a tea or coffee, or unlimited soft drink. If you fancy something stronger, you can get a pint of Carling or Strongbow or 175ml glass of Vinewood wine (usually around £3) for £1 extra.
Kids can also get in on the action for £5. It includes any children's main meal, unlimited salad and a kids' Sundae Best ice-cream, saving you around 30p - 70p.
If you're not already signed up, register online with All Bar One and you'll get a voucher for £5 off your bill when you spend £20 or more. You must buy at least one food dish to qualify.
The deal's valid every day, at all restaurants until Wed 31 Dec. There's no max number of vouchers per table, but it’s one voucher per bill - so your group would have to pay separately to use more than one. The voucher's only valid at the restaurant you select when you register.
Sign up free to the Miller & Carter newsletter and get a voucher for a ‘free’ 175ml glass of house wine (usually £3.50ish) when you buy an adult main meal (from the main menu) until Thu 26 Feb. If you don't fancy wine, you can get a regular draught Pepsi, Diet Pepsi or lemonade soft drink instead.
You can print the voucher or show it on your smartphone. You can't use this on Thu 25 - Fri 26 Dec and Thu 1 Jan. It's newbies only, so if you've already signed up, you'll have to sit this one out.
Print a Burger King voucher sheet containing eight individual offers to get a range of deals, including a 2for1 double cheeseburger. It’s one voucher per person until Sun 21 Dec.
You'll notice there's actually nine offers on the sheet. The extra one - a whopper and fries for £1.99 - works differently to the rest. It ends on Wed 31 Dec and you can only get it via the Burger King app. You'll need to download the app and show it on your smartphone. There are often exclusive deals available on the app, so we reckon it’s worth downloading.
Voucher sheet printable offers include:
Both the printable vouchers and the app offer are valid at most branches, but there are some exclusions (see more info below).
As Burger King is a franchise, it can't guarantee that all restaurants are participating. The offers exclude theme park branches, motorway, airport and railway branches. Check ahead if you're making a special trip.
Each offer also has some other individual T&Cs, so check these on the voucher or the app before you try to use them. The offers can't be used with other deals.
Register with Toby Carvery and get a voucher for a free dairy ice cream (usually £2.79) when an adult orders an adult main (£8ish). A child can also get the offer, but they must order a children's main meal and they will get a child portion ice cream.
You can print the voucher or show it on your smartphone. The voucher's good for up to six people, and it's valid at all restaurants Mon-Sat for four weeks after you register your voucher. This is an ongoing promotion.
Enter the code AAPJTFT online to get 2for1 pizza at Papa John's* on any Tuesday. You can only get this deal online.
The code’s valid on any medium, large or XXL pizza (including stuffed crust) and the cheapest one's free. Small pizzas are excluded - these are the 9.5'' ones which we reckon are suitable for one person (although the boys in the office say they could eat more).
It works on collection and delivery. There is a minimum spend of £10.99 after the code has been applied (although we found very few pizzas less than £10.99). Most Papa John’s are taking part - see below for excluded branches. As pizzas can hit around £20 at Papa John's, this is a good saving!
MSE Update 5pm, Thu 11 Dec: Orange/EE has announced this offer will end on 25 Feb 2015, so make use of it while you can. See our EE to axe 'Orange Wednesdays' from February news story for full details and here's a round-up of other current cinema deals.
Orange/EE customers can get 2for1 on both mains and dough balls at most PizzaExpress restaurants every Wednesday by texting FILM to 241 (costs 35p) and using the Orange/EE Wednesdays cinema code. You can also get the code by calling 241 or using the app - although these cost 35p also.
It's valid on takeaway orders too, either show the code on your phone or mention it when ordering over the phone (excludes online orders).
One code per customer and the cheapest main will be free. Excludes Dean St London Jazz club. You won't be able to get takeaway at Great Portland Street in London, St Ives, or Jesmond in Newcastle.
Can't be used with any other offer or set menu, including Tesco restaurant tokens, Piccolo menu or Express lunch menu.
Sign-up to Sizzling Pubs' newsletter and get £5 off your food bill when you spend £10 or more. It's an ongoing offer, for up to six people, valid for 14 days from the date you register at any of its restaurants.

Choose from Americano, cappuccino, latte, tea, mocha or espresso (decaf options are also available in some stores).
If you haven't got one already, sign up for a myWaitrose card using the link above and you'll receive it within five weeks. However, as soon as you've signed up, you can register your details and print a paper version, which you can show in-store to get this offer.
There's no minimum spend, simply walk in and show your card. See the full list of participating Waitrose stores.
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 Beefeater and one child aged 12 or under can eat for 'free' when an adult buys a main meal from the main menu It's valid 12pm-5pm every Saturday. Up to six children per table can eat 'free' as long as there's one adult ordering a main meal per child - so six adults means six children can eat 'free'.
Kids will get a children's main meal from the 'Mr. Men & Little Miss Kids Menu' and a glass of squash or milk for 'free' (usually cost £4.49). You can decide to pay £1 to include a second course or £1.50 for a third course.

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.
There's no voucher to print, simply walk in to get the offer. Crown says this is an ongoing offer, and it's available at all its restaurants.
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.
It's an ongoing offer that's valid at all Flaming Grill pubs.
Get the Tesco's meal deal for one (which includes a main, dessert and drink) for £5 in 216 selected Express stores.
