ILKLEY eateries are among the venues being promoted by the Sparkling Bradford winter campaign.

While some enjoy the heat of the kitchen and preparing a festive feast at home there is a wealth of traditional and non traditional Christmas Day dinner options available to book.

From roast dinners with all the trimmings, to festive feasts from across the globe, Sparkling Bradford has selected many of the best options to enjoy.

Sachi’s Restaurant, Ilkley, is an authentic, fine dining Indian restaurant and bar, situated at The Moors Shopping Centre in Ilkley. Open and available to book for lunch on Christmas Day, director and chef, Sachchidananda Samanta, has worked tirelessly to develop a menu that spans from the traditional to more adventurous meal options; influenced by the skills he’s learned through years of working with Indian and French cooking techniques.

Relax is the key word for Christmas at the Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley this year. The team will serve tasty canapes served by a roaring log fire from 12pm on Christmas Day, followed by an exquisite six course lunch.

The Sparkling Bradford winter campaign, which works to boost the local economy by showcasing the visitor experience in Bradford, highlights the huge and diverse range of events, activities and entertainment on offer throughout the district.

Bradford Councillor, Sarah Ferriby said: “The hospitality industry has been significantly affected in the last eighteen months, and it is our aim to do all we can to boost footfall in the district and raise awareness about a city steeped in heritage and brimming with culture. Christmas Day is the perfect day to celebrate all that Bradford has to offer; with so many culinary delights on offer, both locals and tourists will be spoilt for choice!”
