Embarking on a Leeds stag night on an empty stomach is a mug's game. Kick off with a two-course meal at a tried and trusted city centre restaurant. It's a chance to get the whole group together, refuel, line stomachs and plan your attack on the bars of Lower Briggate.
We've hand-picked a selection of restaurants that serve up man-size portions of great grub in a suitably stylish, lively setting. Chow down on classic pizzas or piping hot lasagne. Scoff dirty burgers, giant onion rings or fill your boots with steak fajitas and hand-cut chips. This is no piddling little snack - but it's not going to get in the way of the beer you'll be throwing down your neck either!
The meal at the start of a stag weekend is a key event. It's a chance to ease into the mayhem with some proper nosh, and to meet the boys from all the different groups of stag's friends. From work mates to fathers in law, the stag party meal is where weekend-long alliances are formed.
Emerge fully fuelled, ready for a legendary Leeds drinking session.
