“Eat Out To Help Out”

eat out to help out

The UK Government launched its “Eat Out To Help Out” scheme yesterday, which aims to boost the hospitality sector as the country eases out of the coronavirus lockdown.

The scheme offers customers a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks at registered restaurants every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between August 3-31.

Diners won’t need a voucher or code to take advantage of this offer, and it can even be used in conjunction with other discounts.

And best of all, there’s no minimum spend — meaning you don’t have to order a feast (unless you want to, of course!)

Stay safe

We are, of course, glad that restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs are beginning to reopen.

This is, hopefully, the first signs that life is beginning to return to normal, and the “Eat Out To Help Out” initiative offers a great incentive to get out and about.

It is important, however, to continue to observe social distancing rules; to wear a face mask when out in public; and to wash your hands regularly.

If you are worried that you are exhibiting symptoms of coronavirus, get tested as soon as you can and stay at home for ten days. 

What if I’m still in lockdown?

Unfortunately, some areas of the country remain subject to tighter restrictions. 

In these areas, restaurants, cafes and pubs may be closed, so it is always best to check local guidelines before venturing out.

This is the best way to ensure your safety, and the safety of those around you.
