Eat Leeds Restaurant Week Announces First Bus Partnership

Eat Leeds Restaurant Week returns to the city this summer from Monday 15 – Sunday 21 August in partnership with First Bus, enabling people to travel to their chosen restaurant via bus for less with a Single £2 Flat Fare ticket.

This August, Eat Leeds Restaurant Week returns to the city with specially crafted menus of £5, £10, £15, £20 and £25, in partnership with First Bus. As part of the week-long celebration, audiences are invited to dine out at some of the city’s outstanding food and drink venues, and travel to their chosen restaurant using the bus on a First Bus, Single £2 Flat Fare ticket.

Available to buy via the First Bus App, the Single £2 Flat Fare ticket can be used at anytime, anywhere, across West Yorkshire, allowing diners to travel into the city for less from across the wider region. As customers feel the squeeze of the ongoing cost of living crisis, the partnership will help diners to avoid city centre parking costs and rising fuel prices. As well as removing congestion from the city during the week-long celebration.

Customers will be able to enjoy specially crafted menus from a select number of Eat Leeds eateries, with more than 30 restaurants being confirmed so far. This includes newly added restaurants: Iberica, an elegant Spanish dining room offering traditional tapas in a sophisticated converted auction house. Aagrah Leeds City Centre and Chapel Allerton, contemporary restaurants serving traditional regional dishes from India and Pakistan, and creative cocktail bar and restaurant The Alchemist. Plus, Grand Pacific which allows customers to experience all-day dining and blends English classics with exotic flavours.

Managed by Eat Leeds, Restaurant Week provides customers with the opportunity to taste what’s on offer at restaurants across the city. From fine dining to popular pubs, tasty street food, or good old grub served on a sun-soaked terrace, the week-long event is designed with every diner’s needs in mind, served with an affordable price tag. To try flavours from across the world, and tuck into a variety of cuisines, as well as encouraging a broader audience to the city.

Amy Rolinson, Manager of Eat Leeds said: “At Eat Leeds we are very aware that Restaurant Week is launching during a time when diners may be finding their living costs rising. Restaurant Week provides exclusive dining options at the fraction of a cost, but door-to-door, customers may experience other expenses, specifically travel costs.

“That’s why we’re thrilled to have First Bus as our partner for Restaurant Week this year. Thanks to their Single £2 Flat Fare tickets, we hope that more diners will be able to visit Leeds for less. This includes Leeds locals, as well as a broader audience from across West Yorkshire who can enjoy the fantastic food offerings Restaurant Week has available.”

John Godfrey, Head of Marketing for First West Yorkshire, said: “We’ve been supporting the leisure and hospitality sector for a year now to help them build their recovery from the pandemic, through a fund to boost new ideas, joint promotions with brands and travel partnerships.

“We’re delighted to support Eat Leeds in bringing people to great experiences all over the city and giving them a great value sustainable travel option for getting there.”
