The government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme comes into effect in the UK from August. The programme is designed to encourage people to eat out to support local businesses and boost the economy.


How does the scheme work?

Diners who eat-in will receive a 50% discount, up to a maximum of £10 per person on food and non-alcoholic drinks. The scheme is valid Monday through to Wednesday throughout August and no voucher is required. What’s more, diners can take advantage of the offer as many times as they like during the month.

More than 53,000 outlets across the UK have so far signed up to the scheme. A new official government online finder is available to help diners locate participating venues. You can find the search tool here.
