Eat Out To Help Out

Sign up to Eat Out to Help Out
The Eat Out to Help Out scheme is designed to incentivise customers to dine-in at your business by giving them a discount, which you can then claim back from the government.

The scheme is UK wide and customers will be able to see who is taking part on GOV.UK. We will also be promoting it on our website and social media accounts.

It will run from 3rd to 31st August 2020 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
It is a 50% discount, up to a maximum of £10 per person – there is no limit to the number of times customers can use the offer during the period of the scheme. The discount applies to food or non-alcoholic drinks – alcohol and service charges are excluded from the offer.

Eligible establishments are those in which food is sold for immediate on-premises consumption and were registered as a food business on or before 7 July this year.
This could include:
– Restaurants
– Cafés
– Pubs that serve food
– Hotel restaurants
– Restaurants and cafes within tourist attractions, holiday sites and leisure facilities

To find out more and register your business, visit the website.
