With the Prime Minister confirmed on Monday that restrictions would ease from 19 July, Eat Leeds – together with a growing number of restaurants and cafes – is cooking u a tasty treat to tempt food lovers back into the city centre this summer.

So to celebrate the return to eating out Eat Leeds and participating Leeds restaurants are giving diners the chance to sink their teeth into specially crafted two or three course menus priced at £10, £15 or £20, or free children’s meals available Sundays to Wednesdays until 25 August with a side order of savings.

Venues taking part include Cantina, Leeds’ first all vegan restaurant, Tharavadu, the city’s only Michelin recommended Indian restaurant and Ambiente Tapas serving up a variety of Spanish tapas dishes guaranteed to get mouths watering.

Amy Rolinson, manager of Eat Leeds, said: “It’s been a really tough time for the hospitality industry, and we are proud to do our bit to champion the city’s fantastic food offering and encourage families and food fans back to the city centre once more.

“The industry has been working solidly, behind the scenes, to create a safe and comfortable environment and this is a great way to boost local businesses and gives food fans the opportunity to support Leeds’ hospitality industry which plays such a key role in the city’s economy.”

With a wide range of family-favourite restaurants taking part from Bibis Italianissimo to Harvey Nichols Fourth Floor Brasserie and Bar, with a ‘kids eat free’ offer, it’s a great way to keep the family entertained over the summer holidays without breaking the bank.

Annabel Hutchinson, Bibi’s Restaurant, said: “We’re thrilled to be back in business and welcome diners back the Bibis. The Eat Leeds scheme is a great way to encourage families back to the city centre to come and enjoy the shopping, the museums and everything that this wonderful place has to offer.”

The Eat Leeds event is being organised as part of the Visit Leeds’ wider recovery campaign to welcome visitors back to the city and surrounding areas and champion the Leeds hospitality industry.

Councillor Jonathan Pryor, deputy leader and executive member for economy, culture and education, said: “Leeds’ tourism and hospitality industry plays a crucial role in the city’s economy, and has had to face many challenges over the pandemic, as have the city’s wealth of attractions and cultural venues. Supporting the Eat Leeds initiative demonstrates Leeds City Council’s commitment to encouraging visitors and residents into the city centre as part of the city’s wider visitor economy recovery.”
