First Dates Background Dater Applications

Be a Background Dater!

Experience the First Dates restaurant without the pressure of being featured on the programme. Mateo, Ethan and Alice are opening up the doors to the First Dates Restaurant this August at The Gibson Hotel and now is your chance to experience the unique atmosphere of our love filled restaurant for yourself.

Last year over 300 background daters visited the First Dates restaurant with many of our matches arranging further dates and rating the overall experience highly.

We couldn't have been accommodated better, the whole experience was fantastic.
