Summer has arrived in Belfast, and the longer brighter days are filling us with the inspiration to get out and about after work.
Whilst previously our limited budget might have put a stop to our socialising, it seems the bars and restaurants of Belfast have gotten wise to our needs and come up with a series of seriously budget-friendly money savers.
So now, going out doesn’t have to break the bank. Check out some of our top money savers in Belfast! Some of these are unbelievable…
1. Honest Pizza Company
153 Stranmillis Road – Website
Honest Pizza Company create their food using only the best possible quality ingredients, with their cheese imported directly from Italy in addition to most of their meats. Meanwhile, the chicken and ham is sourced locally. The dough is made on the premises using Italian flour and a sourdough starter which results in a tastier, crispier and healthier pizza.
With all this in mind, you’d be forgiven for assuming Honest’s price reflects the extremely high quality product. But luckily for any passionate pizza lovers out there, Honest do a whole range of amazing Meal Deals. The Student Deal at just £8.95 will get you any 12″ pizza with house made tomato sauce, real Italian mozzarella cheese and two toppings of your choice, a garlic pizza bread and a drink.
