As businesses across the country re-open their outdoor seating areas, we’ve put together a list of local favourites that are top of our list to visit post-lockdown…

This beloved family-run restaurant and cocktail bar have kept busy during lockdown with home deliveries and completing their renovation to double indoor and outdoor space!

Following the huge success with home delivery last year, Jino’s has relocated to a larger premises on North Lane. Not only will customers have more outdoor seating, the kitchen is five times bigger!

Jino’s keep their menu simple and fresh to reflect the best of authentic Thai cuisine. The range of appetisers, curries, noodles, rice dishes and street food will leave you spoiled for choice. However, Jino’s real gem is the friendly and relaxed atmosphere, making it a great place to enjoy the sunshine as lockdown eases.

Posted by Headingley Farmers’ Market on Monday, 29 March 2021

There’s nothing quite like walking through the stalls of a local farmers market, with tasty fresh produce, live music and friendly faces – all while supporting local businesses. Is there a better way to spend a slow Saturday morning? We don’t think so!

The next Headingley Farmers market is taking place on Saturday 8th May from 9am – 12:30pm. There will be a one way system and market goers are required to wear masks, unless medically exempt.

Note: we understand that not everyone can visit non-essential businesses and we only encourage you to do so at your own pace, when you feel comfortable and able.
