We support Eat Out to Help Out

‘Eat Out to Help Out’ is a new scheme offering people 50% off the price of their meals including soft drinks, up to a maximum of £10 per head, in participating restaurants. Diners will get up to £10 per head discount, including children. Each person must be eating and drinking to qualify for the discount. The scheme, run by the government, will run for the entire month of August, every Monday to Wednesday, beginning on August 3rd.

What's included in the scheme?

All food and any non-alcoholic drinks will be covered by the offer. Alcoholic drinks are not covered, nor are service charge or tips.

The offer only applies to sit down meals, not takeaways. Private catering and hotel room service is also not included. 

Eligible establishments are those in which food is sold for immediate on-premises consumption. You can register if your establishment:

  • Sells food for immediate consumption on the premises
  • Provides its own dining area or shares a dining area with another establishment for eat-in meals
  • Was registered as a food business with the relevant local authority on or before 7th July 2020

You must register with the government website first to take part in the scheme. Once approved, you can claim back the discount offered to diners each week.
