4. As a penny-pinching mum, I always save big days out like Longleat ‘til they have a special offer on. The good news is that its Dads go Free event is back for another year this weekend! Take advantage of this offer on either Saturday 16 or Sunday 17 with a full paying adult or child saving you £28.85.
5. If you really want to push the boat out, treat dad to a lavish three-course meal for £25 a head at Dinewithi, a pop up restaurant hosted at charming vintage shop Frankie Loves Ava in Totterdown. Not the cheapest, but diners often award it five stars for satisfaction and value for money. And it’s BYO alcohol, so that helps keep the costs down. Booking essential, click here for more details.
6. Treat Dad to a free roast at Toby Carvery this Sunday, available if you book a table and dine after 6pm on the day. Or if you can’t make Sunday evening, dad can enjoy a free pint of Stowford Press cider or Heineken when ordering a king size meal all weekend. Don’t forget to book online and download the app – there’s a carvery in Bradley Stoke and Whitchurch.
