The Restaurants Taking Part in the Government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ Scheme

The government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme will see participating businesses offering a 50% discount to customers on dine-in meals on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Hundreds of restaurants, cafés and pubs have now signed up for the scheme that promises 50% off food throughout August.

Starting on August 3rd, the government has launched a new portal outlining all the independent venues taking part. It is hoped the scheme will be a lifeline to businesses that have weathered an extremely challenging period.

The government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme will see participating businesses offering a 50% discount to customers on dine-in meals on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Participating restaurants will not be out of pocket as they will be able to claim the money, up to £10 per person, back from the government.

Fast-dining chains, including Nando’s and Wagamama were quick to sign-up to the scheme which hopes to encourage the public to return to eateries across the country.

The discount will automatically be available at participating establishments, to find out if your favourite local eatery has signed up, visit https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/eat-out-to-help-out/find-a-restaurant/.

It is worth keeping in mind that the portal only includes businesses within a two-mile radius of the postcode you use. Restaurants are still signing up so be sure to check back if your favourite isn’t listed yet.
