Diners with discerning palates can tickle their taste buds when an annual favourite returns next month. 

Middlesbrough’s food scene is better than ever, and with this year’s Restaurant Week - from Monday, May 1 to Sunday, May 7 - being the biggest yet, there has never been a better time to explore it. 

From independent cafés and bar-restaurants to much-loved family favourites, Middlesbrough has a truly diverse dining offer that caters for all tastes. 

With a variety of special menus, limited edition dishes and fantastic prices in restaurants in the town centre, Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to sample what Middlesbrough has to offer. 

Those who are familiar with Middlesbrough will be excited to find offers from popular Bedford Street cafés and restaurants such as Bedford St Coffee and The Curing House. 

The Fork in the Road, an innovative not-for-profit restaurant that serves high end international cuisine while changing lives, is the perfect place for people who want to dine and make a difference. 

You could eat out every day during Middlesbrough Restaurant Week and never get bored, with cuisines ranging from Mexican and Best of British to African-Caribbean and Italian. 

Flavours from around the world are on our doorstep, and there has never been a better time to try something new! 

Middlesbrough is passionate about supporting local suppliers and producers, and many restaurants participating in this year’s Restaurant Week are listed on the Growing Middlesbrough directory. 

Guests will be able to enjoy their meal with the knowledge that they are contributing to the local economy in more ways than one. 

With a record number of offers, this year’s Restaurant Week is not to be missed! 

Sharon Thomas, Middlesbrough Council’s Director of Culture and Communities, said: “The last few years have seen Middlesbrough establish a regional reputation for first class culture and leisure, and eating out plays a key role in that offer. 

“Our truly cosmopolitan range of independent restaurants, cafes, bistros and micro pubs is growing all the time, and there really is something for everyone. 

 “Restaurant Week 2017 is an open invitation to residents and visitors to enjoy fantastic food together with some unbeatable offers.”
