Leicester Restaurant Week kicks off across the city as people flock into The Globe pub
By Jayden Whitworth
Pubs and restaurants across Leicester are offering discounted food this week as part of the city’s new scheme ‘Leicester Restaurant Week’.
From yesterday (MON,OCT18) until Sunday, various restaurants across the city are taking part to encourage the people of Leicester to get out and enjoy what the city has to offer.
Thirty restaurants are involved with a selection of different cuisines on offer, ranging from Argentinian food at Sonrisa, Thai Tapas at The Giggling Squid or classic pub food at The Globe pub.
This week will also give these restaurants a fantastic opportunity to bounce back after a difficult couple of years.
Layla Sidat, general manager at The Globe, said: “It’s always good to have new customers try our food and experience The Globe’s unique atmosphere.
“After lockdown I’m sure there will be a bit of hesitation for diners returning back to the centre but hopefully this will encourage them to give us a go.
“Here at The Globe, we are offering two-course and three-course menus with a selection of dishes, some new and some old favourite dishes especially for Leicester Restaurant Week.
“With the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme such a hit nationally last year, it’s nice to be able to offer a deal ourselves and get people back enjoying hospitality.
“Today has been the first day and we have already had a full dining room ordering from the ‘Leicester Restaurant Week’ menu, so I am hoping this trend carries forward throughout the week and hoping for a cracking weekend too!”
