Dine Sheffield returns to city centre for fortnight of food offers
A flagship initiative of Sheffield BID’s Alive After Five strategy, Dine Sheffield gives diners the opportunity to enjoy fantastic food at great prices across Sheffield city centre’s diverse dining scene, whilst boosting the early evening economy.
From world cuisine to pub grub, café favourites and fine dining, some of Sheffield city centre’s favourite eateries have signed up to Dine Sheffield, including Yorkshire restaurant Silversmiths, pizza paradise Craft and Dough, café favourite The Cabin and West One’s new burger joint Kerbedge.
During Dine Sheffield, restaurants involved will be offering bespoke set menus, priced at either £5, £10 or £15 per person. Vouchers for the offers can be downloaded at www.dinesheffield.co.uk and redeemed during Dine Sheffield, from 15 – 29 March.
Diane Jarvis, Sheffield BID Manager, said: “Sheffield city centre has a strong food offer, comprising of both big-name chains and much-loved independents. Following the success of the first Dine Sheffield in September 2017, when thousands of diners downloaded vouchers to redeem at city centre restaurants, Sheffield BID has decided to run Dine Sheffield again.
“Dine Sheffield helps boosts the local economy, increases early-evening footfall and gives diners the opportunity to enjoy fantastic deals across Sheffield city centre’s dynamic dining scene.”
During Dine Sheffield, Sheffield’s foodies will be able to enjoy discounted dining at their favourite restaurants, or give somewhere new a try. In 2017, diners from Sheffield and beyond travelled to the city centre to take advantage of the great deals on offer.
Richard Lawford, General Manager at Sakushi, said: “Sakushi took part in the first Dine Sheffield in 2017 and during the event we had lots of customers visit the restaurant for the first time. It was fantastic to welcome new people to Sakushi, and to see them enjoying our menu of sushi, noodles and other Japanese dishes.
“With so many deals on offer across the city centre, people were keen to visit restaurants they hadn’t dined at before. During Dine Sheffield we had lots of first-time customers, many of whom have become regulars as Sakushi and discovered new favourite dishes and flavours. We are taking part again this year, giving diners the opportunity to try two noodle or rice dishes for £10.”
Dine Sheffield is a flagship initiative for Sheffield BID’s Alive After Five strategy, which is helping to boost the economy by promoting a new early evening experience through retail, entertainment, food and drink.
Tina Gage of Silversmiths, said: “All the team at Silversmiths restaurant are delighted to support Dine Sheffield as it provides the platform for trusted independent restaurants to showcase their venue.
“We joined Dine Sheffield last year and were pleasantly surprised at the vast quantity of new customers that tried Silversmiths. The event brought a lot of custom into the city centre, especially those that didn’t realise these independents existed, giving the opportunity for people to experience new places that they wouldn’t usually try.”
During Dine Sheffield, diners will be able to park for as little as £1 in council car parks and street bays after 4:30pm as part of Alive After 5’s Sound as a Pound parking offer. They will also be able to enjoy 20% off car parking at Q Park car parks in the city centre, using the code DINE20. If you’d prefer to leave the car at home, First is offering one half-price adult bus ticket to diners who download the First Bus m-Tickets app and use the code DineShef467.
