I’ve been off work this week which meant I’ve had time to explore more of Manchester. My wandering led me to Oxford Road where a lot of people where out on the streets making their brands known in the Freshers Fair. You couldn’t take 5 steps without someone trying to hand you a poster of some sort. I’m not a student, but it would have been rude not to indulge them given some of the offers at play. I ended up taking up two offers which fed me for the most part of the day at a cost of £1.The first offer was a free main course and drink at Turing Tap. It was meant to be lunch for two but couldn’t find anyone available at the time to join me so I went all by myself. Nonetheless, it was a very exciting experience. This blogger friendly spot (and I don’t just mean the very welcoming staff but also the pristine decor) was preparing for it’s grand re-opening and wanted to give their staff a chance to practice on real customers hence the offer of free dining. The excitement of course came from drawing your meal from a top hat which meant I ended up trying something I have never had before. It was the Tomato, Mozzarella and Avocado Ciabatta. I’m not vegetarian and would usually go for a meaty meal but this was a a very tasty vegetarian option which was also healthy. Accompanied with fries, salad and a drink all at no cost, I couldn’t ask for a more filling lunch.After my meal I had a chance to wander round and take pictures and the staff where very accommodating of me. It was a lovely way to spend my afternoon. It is certainly a place I will be revisiting, soon. So you ask where I spent the pound? Well, Dominos was offering free pizza for students and a charge of £1 to non students to take part in the offer. I paid the pound for a box of pepperoni pizza which I had for tea while chilling on my hammock which by the way still needs hanging.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post. As for me, I’m continuing my journey of exploring this wonderful city. See you in my next post 🙂
