BRITISH FOOD FORTNIGHT – Lots of Good Local Deals

It's British Food Fortnight and, to celebrate the very best of British, Travel Zoo Local Deal Experts have handpicked and negotiated deals on award-winning dining, traditional afternoon teas and gourmet getaways around the country. They start at £25 and you can even get gift vouchers so you can treat a friend. Most deals are valid until the end of 2013 but some have end dates as late as March 2014. By vising the Travel Zoo website:
you can select an area within the UK to view the local deals. I looked at the Midlands and London and these are four of the highlights on offer, but you need to book quickly as they all have strict time limits in which to purchase.

THE WHITE HORSE, Balsall Common, Coventry

Making a purchase is simple. Check the small print for special instructions before you redeem your Local Deal and I recommend you call the merchant as soon as possible to get the dates that you require. You have 7 days to ask for a refund if you wish to cancel your order. Most vouchers are valid for two people and are valid between certain days of the week, subject to availability. Reservations are required. Vegetarian alternatives are available but this requirement must be mentioned when booking.
