Durham Restaurant Week set to return January 28-February 4

The second Durham Restaurant Week is set to take place across the historic city and beyond January 28-February 4.

Organised by Durham BID, the event will see restaurants, cafés and bars taking part – with £10, £15, £20 and £25 menus on offer throughout the week.

Businesses which have signed up for the event include The Boat Club & Tomahawk Steakhouse; Turtle Bay, The Curious Mr Fox, Old Toms Gin Bar, Tealicious Tea Rooms, Zapatista, Tortilla, Gusto, Tapas Factory, and the Collage Restaurant at the Radisson.

Paul Howard, Durham BID manager, said: “The city has an amazing food and drink scene with lots of independents as well as big-name restaurants. From Turkish cuisine to tapas, Mexican burritos to Japanese flavours, the city has a strong culinary offering that people can sink their teeth into. Whether it’s visiting their favourite place or trying something new, customers can enjoy dining out at bargain prices during the week.”

Durham BID’s Emma Wright added: “Whether it’s a lunchtime bite to eat or organising a night out with friends or family, Durham Restaurant Week promises to offer a tasty experience for all. Durham BID successfully held a Restaurant Week in 2019, which was organised by the BID’s former management team. As a new BID team, we decided to bring back the event post-Covid, and we are hopeful we can build Restaurant Week into our events calendar year on year.”

Rich Morgan, general manager at The Boat Club Bar & Tomahawk Steakhouse, said: “It’s great to see Durham city have an official restaurant week – why should Newcastle and Teesside get to have all the fun? We know from experience how our sister brands, Tomahawk Steakhouse & Rio Brazilian Steakhouse, benefit from such a great offer. All venues should be on board with anything that promotes people staying here as opposed to a short train journey over the Tyne.’’
