The Eat Out to Help Out scheme means diners are able to get discounts of up to 50% on food and drinks between Monday and Wednesday between the 3rd and 31st of August, with the government reimbursing the businesses for these discounts, in a bid to get the hospitality industry back on track.
People do not need a voucher to use this scheme and can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend. However, you cannot claim discount on alcoholic drinks or service charges.
If you want to register your establishment, you can do so here.
Look for the Logo!
People wanting to take advantage of this scheme as customers should look for the logo, which is likely to be displayed outside participating establishments. Likewise, establishment owners should make sure they have the logo clearly displayed.
The logo looks like this:
There is also a new restaurant finder tool online, which will give users a list of all the participating restaurants within a 5 mile radius of the postcode they type into the restaurant locator tool.
Establishments who register for the scheme will be automatically added to this restaurant finder, so as long as the details they provide are correct, it should be easy for people to locate them.
