Visit the shopping centre’s atrium, outside Cineworld and Debenhams, between 12pm to 4pm, to try out new cuisines and flavours.

Every set menu is listed in the Watford Food & Drink Week leaflet, which is being distributed to all Watford households, and full details can also be found on the website: www.watfordbid.co.uk.

Vicki Costello, chair of Watford BID, the organisation behind Watford Food & Drink Week, said: "Our participating businesses are looking forward to improving on last year’s Food & Drink Week even further by having exclusive set menus and being part of an event in the town centre itself. Local residents and employees will be able to treat themselves to a lovely meal, and try something new with a variety of samples and tasters at our food festival at intu Watford, in the atrium outside Debenhams.”
