THE organisers of the Ilkley Christmas Teepees are hosting a popup restaurant.

From 4 to 26 July BAR Events UK and The Ribble Valley Group are back with a popup summer restaurant experience ‘Dine Under Canvas’. Located adjacent to Ben Rhydding Sports Club on the Ilkley Grammar School fields, the teepee structures offer an open sided, socially distant dining concept. The menu offers a range of sharing platters and drinks to enjoy throughout your 90 minute sitting. Dan Lakin from BAR Events UK, who have teamed up with The Ribble Valley group for the concept, explains the COVID-19 secure measures: "Rigorous measures have been put in place to ensure social distancing guidelines and increased levels of cleanliness will be adhered to. The service style will enable zero contact between guests and staff, whilst single use table ware and digital menus will also minimise contact and possibilities of cross contamination. Thorough and regular cleaning processes will be in place and sanitising stations will be available to all guests throughout the venue."

Dan added: "Bookings are essential, for over 18s only and can be made online for two to eight guests via the Dine Under Canvas Facebook page. Menus can also be viewed on the dedicated Facebook Page. Current opening times are - Fridays and Saturdays 17:00 – 23:00 and Sundays 13:00 – 21:00. "
