How does the Eat Out To Help Out scheme work?

Diners can benefit from a 50% discount, up to a maximum of £10 per person, on food and non-alcoholic drinks at thousands of restaurants across the UK and no voucher is required. Diners can also take advantage of the offer as many times as they like during the month.

You actually don’t have to do anything to claim your Eat Out To Help Out entitlement. Once you have chosen your restaurant your server will automatically apply the £10 discount to your bill. It’s worth noting, some restaurants have launched specific deals to claim your £10 off rather than ordering from the usual menu. I recommend you get in touch with your chosen restaurant to see if they are doing a specific deal.

The ‘Eat out To Help Out’ scheme runs from 3rd August – 31 August and is available Monday to Wednesday only – and no voucher is required.

Tips on Eating Out After Lockdown

1. Book ahead. Some restaurants will require you to book ahead because they have limited seating due to social distancing measures. Also, they may only allow certain offers to booked diners.

2 Please turn up or cancel in advance if you need to. If you don’t turn up that means the restaurant has lost money from your table that they could have offered to other diners. Please make sure you cancel if you can’t make it.

3. Be respectful to other diners and the restaurant’s rules. Keep your distance where possible and follow the rules the restaurant has put in place such as one way systems, spaced out seating arrangements and masks/sanitisers.

4. Try and go contactless. Limiting your interaction with your server will help limit the spread. Tapping your card instead of using cash will help.

5. If you can walk, drive or cycle to your chosen restaurant rather than using public transport then please do.


Why you should use the Eat Out To Help Out Scheme

We’ve all had a tough time the last few months haven’t we? Both personally and professionally. We need to support each other during the next few months while the world rebuilds itself and that’s why you should use the Eat Out To Help Out scheme. Businesses big and small have been financially destroyed by these unforeseeable circumstances and if we can support them while the UK government supports us then its a win all around. You can get back out there and enjoy lost time with friends and family with a financial helping hand if you otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford.


Happy Eating!
