Eat out to help out out! What is it and what’s it all about? How does it work? Who is involved? Well….read on to find out everything you need to know! 😀

What’s it all about?

The government has launched this amazing scheme in an attempt to encourage the public to support the struggling restaurant industry as the economy seeks to recover from the coronavirus lockdown.

Announcing the plan, Rishi Sunak said: “To get customers back into restaurants, cafes and pubs, and protect the 1.8 million people who work in them, I can announce today that, for the month of August, we will give everyone in the country an Eat Out to Help Out discount.”

How does it work?

  • When you dine out from Monday to Wednesday in August, starting from 3rd August, you will get 50% off the price of your meal including non-alcoholic drinks, up to the value of £10 per head. (includes children)
  • You don’t need a voucher to use the scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts as many times as you like during the month of August.
  • There is no minimum spend but service charges aren’t included.
  • The offer is only valid for eat-in meals. Take-aways and delivery orders won’t count.

Who is involved?

Well, that’s easy! Since there are over 130,000 participating businesses though, you’ll forgive me if I don’t list them all here. 😜 However, if you click on the button at the bottom of this post you can then add any postcode in the UK to find a list of participating businesses in that area.

Find yourself a local business either in your local town or somewhere you might be visiting during the month of August. Then simply pop along, sit down and have a delicious meal with your family or friends! We’ve already booked ourselves a table! 😉🍽🥣☕️🥤
