York BID is excited to announce that York Restaurant Week is returning for a second time this year in support of hospitality businesses, after the covid-19 outbreak. The next event is planned to take place across Monday 12th to Sunday 18th October 2020 and we are now accepting applications from levy paying bars, café’s, restaurants, pubs, hotels and street food vendors who are interested in taking part.

York Restaurant Week is a celebration of York’s vibrant food and drinks businesses and is designed to boost trade for the sector during quieter times of the year.

How it works

Participating businesses commit to provide set price menus throughout the week, priced at either £5, £10, £15, £20.

Each restaurant, café, pub and/or bar is provided with a dedicated page on the York Restaurant Week website where details of their business and offers feature. Once the website has launched, the public will be able to browse and download the corresponding offer voucher/s direct from the website

In order to redeem an offer, customers book directly with the café, restaurant, bar and/or pub and present their York Restaurant Week voucher to a member of staff on arrival, either on their phone or as a printed copy. Only one copy of a voucher is required per party.

Some businesses may choose to submit additional terms and conditions that specify when and how the offer is made available.
