Chow Down Winter Village in Leeds is in full swing this festive season. The outdoor destination found at Temple Arches always has incredible street food vendors, drinks and music. And this year they have a bavarian beer hall which is playing host to the World Cup 2022 screenings.
The main thing that has caught out eye is the festive burger at Bastards Bisto which comes with dipping gravy, stuffing and cranberry mayo!
