It's that time of year again, when you can play puntastic bingo (let's see how many times the word "spooktacular" is used this year), fancy dress is an acceptable thing to have as a dress code for an event and restaurants all get a little ghoulish with their specials.

So with that in mind, we've rounded up some of the best specials you'll be able to grab as Halloween approaches - and a few ideas for a night out too...
