SUNDERLAND RESTAURANT WEEK 2021 - 25 Sept to 3 Oct
SUNDERLAND BID GETS IT TEETH INTO RESTAURANT WEEK…
A POPULAR event which allows foodies to enjoy a whole host of cuisines at a bargain price is set to return to Sunderland.
Restaurant Week, which showcases the best eateries across the city, will be back from 25 September to 3 October. And now organiser, Sunderland BID, is looking for restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes which want to sign up to take part.
In previous years the event was a huge success, with restaurants seeing not only an increase in trade during quieter periods but also attracting new customers.
The city’s first Restaurant Week was held in 2017, with participants recording as much as a 40 per cent increase in footfall and a £250,000 boost to the local economy.
Since then the event has gone from strength to strength and the hope is that now it can fully return, it will once again attract diners from across the region.
Participating venues are asked to put together £5, £10 and £15 deals which will help to bring in customers who are eager to either return to favourite eateries or try somewhere new.
Sharon Appleby, Chief Executive of Sunderland BID, said it would a great opportunity for people to sample the city’s diverse food scene.
“We all know how hospitality has been badly hit over the past year but we are very lucky in Sunderland that the restaurant scene has not only survived but is actually thriving,” she said.
“We have some absolutely amazing places to eat across the city now which is helping to strengthen our offer.
“Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity for people to try new places or visit somewhere they may not have been for a while and at the same time help support the local economy.”
Any venue which would like to get involved should email email@example.com
