A discount dining scheme which encourages people to try out city pubs, cafes and restaurants will return next month.
The next instalment of Sunderland Restaurant Week will take place between Saturday, September 8 to Sunday, September 16.
Organised by Sunderland BID, it offers a variety of deals at £5, £10 and £15, which can be redeemed at more than 30 restaurants - with more expected to be added.
New additions to join the scheme include Olive Street coffee shop, Bean and Grape, The Pickle bar and kitchen at Vine Place and Esquires Coffee House at the Bridges.
Returning restaurants include Port of Call at Park Lane, El Nido Mexicana at Frederick Street and The Lambton Worm at Low Row.
Sharon Appleby, head of business operations at Sunderland BID, says she is delighted that the event is returning to the city for a fifth time.
She said: “Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for diners to try somewhere new in the city, as well as find a great deal at their favourite restaurants and bars.
“We have a fantastic food scene in Sunderland and this is a great chance to showcase what’s on offer. Hopefully diners will find new eateries that they want to continue to support after the week is up.
“We expect Restaurant Week to be really popular, so I would urge diners with their eye on a particular restaurant to book a table in advance to avoid disappointment.”
