Tips on saving money at restaurants; using vouchers, restaurant discount cards and looking out for promotions and special offers.

Free Trial of the Gourmet Society

I took up the offer of three month’s free membership of the Gourmet Society available through Nationwide’s ‘Simply Rewards‘. I really liked the fact that you don’t need to give any bank account or card details to sign up for the trial. I received my membership pack through the post around one week after signing […]

£5 Groupon Meal Deals in London

After I’d booked my cheap London theatre tickets for my London on the cheap trip, I had a look on the Groupon UK site to see if there were any meals deals in the vicinity. It was quite hard to find anything for one person, most of the Groupon restaurant deals were based on two […]

Great Value at the Poppadom Express Indian Buffet in Woburn Place London

The Poppadom Express Indian Buffet in Woburn Place near Euston Station, offers quality food at the very reasonable price of £7.95 for lunch (including a soft drink, glass of wine of half pint of lager) and £12.95 for dinner. I had dinner at this restaurant on a Thursday evening in March 2013 with one of […]

Jimmy Chung’s Chinese Buffet Edinburgh

If you’re in Edinburgh and looking for a cheap, tasty Chinese meal then head to Jimmy Chung’s in Grindlay Street, just off Lothian Road behind the Usher Hall. There’s another Jimmy Chung’s in Edinburgh near Waverley Station, but I think Grindlay Place is better and £1 cheaper for lunch than the Waverley restaurant. The standard […]

99p Coffee at Pret a Manger

At Pret a Manger you can buy a filter coffee for 99 pence. I think this good value for money, as many UK cafes charge around £2 for a coffee. Not quite as cheap as the 50 pence  coffees at Hummus Bros in London, but still a good money saving tip if you need a […]

£6.50 Chinese Buffet in Newcastle

We’ve tried a few of the Chinese restaurants in the China Town area of Newcastle upon Tyne and our favourite is the Ho Buffet in Gallowgate. Our most recent visit was on a Sunday afternoon in November 2011 when it cost £6.50 for lunch. This was excellent value for money as the selection included king […]

Review of Taste Card Trial

I have a one month free trial of the Taste Card restaurant discount card.  I haven’t had great success with the card, partly because we live in a small town in north east England where there aren’t any restaurants accepting the Taste Card. We were in Oban in western Scotland at lunch time in the […]
