From May to September, enjoy dinner al fresco thanks to Dine in the Square.
Take a seat in one of three new outdoor seating areas in public spaces in Leicester City Centre. Simply take a seat and use your mobile device to order food from surrounding restaurants to be delivered directly to your table.
There are loads of reasons to Dine in the Square!
Dining outdoors is permitted under current regulations for groups of up to six people. The risk of covid-transmission in outdoor settings is lower than indoors, so it’s a great way to catch up with the people you’ve missed most over good food.
Tables will be sanitised before and after each group to ensure a clean environment. There will be hand sanitiser available on site which we recommend you use before and after eating.
We ask you to help keep the area clean by putting any waste into the bins provided on site.
There are three Dine in the Square locations in the city.
St Peter’s Square (LE1 4SA)
St Martin’s Square (LE1 5DG)
Green Dragon Square (LE1 5HQ)
Tables will be situated in the squares from May to 30 September.

There are a variety of city centre restaurants signed up to the scheme. Click on the square you want to dine in to see a full list of restaurants available at that location.
If restaurants are particularly busy they are able to turn off their menu in the square. Because of this feature we can’t guarantee exactly which restaurants will be available when you visit.
Your table will have a QR code sticker and table number clearly labelled. Scan the QR code with a camera on your mobile device and you will be taken to the ordering page. From here you can select your restaurant, view the menu and order. You can make payment using any credit or debit card, as well as Google or Apple Pay.
Once payment has been made you will get an order number and an estimated delivery time. Your order will be prepared by the restaurant and brought directly to your table.
Your order will be delivered by staff from the restaurant you ordered from in takeaway packaging and with the necessary cutlery.
