Le Grand Départ is coming to Ripponden! As we’re located right by the tour route, El Gato Negro is offering a choice of fantastic options for die-hard cycle fans, curious tourists, food lovers, and those just wishing to take part in the party atmosphere!  Our traditional Yorkshire stone-flagged floors will provide as much respite and cool as our selection of wine, sherries and beers for the event. And with several ways to enjoy our food, you’ll be able to mix the best of British and the most continental of flavours in a perfect package for a fantastic day out!
Option 1 is a ticket for a private daytime event. It’ll be an early start and a long day of thrills, so our Spanish-style breakfast will set you up in style, served from 9-11am. Then later we’ll be serving a great tapas lunch, with a set menu and a bottle of house wine. Plus of course the bar will be open, and we’ll have some special wines on hand for all the celebrations.

You’ll be able to watch all the excitement outside on the busy streets, or from the comfort of inside the restaurant on the big screens. A great deal at just £70 per head.

Option 2 is food to go: we’ll be selling a great lunch deal. Grab some special hot food, gourmet crisps and a cool drink and enjoy the spectacle in the crowds on the street outside. Great quality food to go… just £10.

Option 3 is a set evening meal (for when the peloton’s passed by and the roads have reopened, but the party carries on) offering some glorious tapas and a bottle of wine. Just £40 per head.
There’s plenty of interest so to secure your places, please call 01422 823070, or ask in person at the restaurant, for full details. Limited spaces!
