Social groups are a great way to meet new people whilst simultaneously visiting interesting places, and Yorkshire Relish has been bringing people together in this fashion for over 20 years now. Not only is it exclusively for the LGBT+ community (and inclusive for guests of members) but collectively over the years, the members of this amicable club have visited most of the restaurants that make Leeds such a vibrant and interesting place to meet. From high end, well-recognised establishments to little hidden gems, it is the purpose of Yorkshire Relish to bring people together over good food and fine wine.
The group first formed back in 1994 and has been administered by a number of members since inception, before being taken over by Rob Wilson in January 2013.
Rob was already an extremely successful event organiser, having worked for a number of social groups in the Leeds area such as The Yorkshire Bears, Spice Yorkshire & City Card Leeds.
He currently also coordinates ‘The Bad Mittens’ (Leeds only LGBT+ inclusive badminton group) & ‘The Angels of Freedom’ LGBT+ community safety project, and also founded the Leeds inclusive Rugby Union team ‘The Leeds Hunters’.
We usually meet on a Friday evening every 6 – 8 weeks, in various restaurants within Leeds City Centre.
As we have members who travel from across Yorkshire we set a dining time for 8pm, however we encourage members to arrive earlier so that they can mingle and meet a number of other guests prior to seating.
New members are always welcome to join us! To join our mailing list please register here.
On Friday 8th November we’ll be visiting the luxurious Mumtaz at Leeds Dock.
We look forward to our first time at this restaurant and hope to welcome a number of new members on the evening.
