More than 50 venues have signed up to take part in a second York Restaurant Week for 2020 – making it a fantastic event for foodies and giving a boost to the city’s hospitality sector.

From Monday 12 October to Sunday 18 October, restaurants, cafés, pubs, bars, hotels, and street food vendors in York city centre will once again be offering a delicious variety of set menus, priced at either £5, £10, £15 or £20.

Vouchers are available to download (completely free) from the website now.

 Some of the fantastic offers include:

  • Double Dutch Pancake House – Any sweet pancake with one topping and a drink for £5
  • Zaap Thai Street Food – 2 courses for £10
  • Ambiente Tapas, Goodramgate & Fossgate – 3 tapas and a drink for £15
  • The Blue Barbakan – 3 course meal (including any choice of cake) for £20

York Restaurant Week is organised by the York BID (Business Improvement District) and was set up to encourage people to eat out during a quieter time of year. 

With the Covid situation putting pressure on the hospitality sector, Restaurant Week offers a welcome boost to business.

BID business manager, Chris Bush said: “We’re really pleased that despite the recent curfew, we are still able to go ahead with Restaurant Week, and the fantastic response we’ve had from venues proves the benefit they gain from taking part.”
