Morpeth Restaurant Week will be taking place on March 20-26 with over 20 restaurants, cafes and venues from the town taking part.
Organised by membership organisation More in Morpeth, a joint venture funded by Sanderson Arcade, Rutherford & Co, the Chamber of Trade, Morpeth Town Council and Sharp Media Group, the week will offer diners from far and wide the chance to sample special deals from all of the town’s best eateries.
This will be Morpeth’s first Restaurant Week and organisers hope that it will raise awareness of the variety of food and drink venues the town has to offer as well as giving a real boost to the town’s footfall.
Imogen Roth, Owner of The Market Place, said: “As a business from right in the heart of the town, we’re delighted to welcome the very first Morpeth Restaurant Week. Since opening up in this location last Summer the business has gone from strength-to-strength and we cannot wait to see even more new customers visit our eco-store and cafe.
“Morpeth is packed full of fantastic cafes, bars and restaurants and Restaurant Week is the perfect example of how we can all come together to drive footfall and continue building a real thriving foodie community here in Morpeth.”
In addition to dining out throughout the day, diners can treat themselves to a selection of three course offers from around the town. All diners need to quote is ‘Restaurant Week’ upon booking.
Florin Stan, General Manager at Townhouse Morpeth, said “Morpeth has so many fantastic eateries for visitors to sink their teeth into and we can’t wait to get involved with our brilliant offer here at The Townhouse. Diners can choose three courses from the lunch menu for just £13.95 – our best offer yet!
“We hope everyone comes to try out all of the brilliant deals the town’s businesses have throughout the week, you could practically eat somewhere different for lunch and dinner every day!”
Other businesses taking part include: Barluga, Pleased to Meet You, The Black Bull, Longsands Apres, Cafe Des Amis, The Sun Inn, Micah’s Tea Room and many more.
Locally, Restaurant Week has been a success in cities such as Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham. January saw many restaurants booked solidly during the return of Newcastle’s Restaurant Week.
Molly Thompson, Account Executive at Sharp Media Group and organiser of Restaurant Week, said: “We hope restaurant week will allow Morpeth’s finest eateries to show what they can do and bring in new customers from the area and beyond. Morpeth really is a town of culinary talent and we cannot wait to hear the feedback from diners.
“This is More in Morpeth’s first event within the town and we hope to announce further projects within the coming months.”
Morpeth Restaurant Week will be running from 20th – 26th March. You can see all participating restaurants and cafes on the More In Morpeth website.
