Eat Out to Help Out scheme to help Restaurants, Cafes and Pubs

Categories // Business, General, Food & Drink, Community, Entertainment & Arts, All Blog Items

There may be no such thing as a free lunch but 50% off sounds good to us!

Find out which local restaurants, pubs and cafes are participating in the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme and where you can get 50% off your meal up to £10 per head, every Monday to Wednesday during August.

uk govt eat out to help out scheme


One of the incentives in Rishi Sunak’s recent Budget to get the UK economy back on track was an attractive 50% discount on eating out for everyone every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during August.  Meals taken at any participating business will be automatically given 50% off, up to £10 per head, per meal, which makes it really easy to use and you can use it unlimited times on those specified days.  Soft drinks are included in the 50% discount, but not alcohol. 

The incentive is open to all restaurants, pubs, cafes and establishments serving food for consumption on the premises. Takeaways and delivered meals aren’t eligible for the scheme.

We've listed below the North Notts restaurants, pubs, cafes and other eateries which have signed up to take part in the scheme so far... from local coffee shops and cafes to the best pub dining and fine dining restaurants in the region. Where available we've given a link to either their Facebook page or website.

You can also see the eateries locally and across the UK who have signed up on the government's website here.
