From curries and craft beers to tapas and tasting menus, win meals for two at some of our favourite places in Leeds

Seeing as Summer’s well and truly over, we thought we’d give our readers something to look forward to in the Autumn (besides pumpkin-spiced-everything) in the form of a night out at not one, not two, not three-four-five-or-six, but seven of our favourite city centre restaurants and bars.

We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite places we’ve visited in the past 12 months - ones that have scored well in reviews, hosted great events, or just the places that we keep going back to time and time again - and decided to send one lucky reader (plus a guest) to all of them, in a prize worth over £500

Shears Yard Menu 5 Of 56
Shears Yard

To put it one way, that’s a night out at one of Leeds best bars and restaurants every night for a week, or how about once a week for almost two months? Imagine, your whole social life sorted all throughout October and November, right up until the start of the festive season (when you’ll have plenty of office parties and nights out to look forward to...)

The winner can look forward to Basque-inspired tapas and a bewildering gin selection from Pintura; creative, modern-British fine dining Shears Yard; 28-day aged steaks cooked on the Josper grill in the luxurious surroundings of Stockdales; award-winning Keralan curries at Tharavadu, the full tasting menu and a couple of home-baked desserts at Good Food Guide-recommended The Swine That Dines; Bundobust’s iconic Indian street food washed down with plenty of craft beers, and a bottle of wine from The Reliance’s enviable list, with some of their house-cured charcuterie to go with it.
