Winner, winner, chicken dinner – the chains and Wokingham borough restaurants giving you 50% off your meals in August

Eat out to help out

Eat Out to Help Out discount scheme launched by Government

A NEW interactive postcode checker has been launched to allow diners to take advantage of the new Eat Out To Help Out scheme. 

Running Monday to Wednesday throughout August, the Government-backed offer allows visitors to participating restaurants, cafes and pubs to enjoy 50% off sit-down meals and soft drinks. The maximum discount per person is £10. 

Customers don’t need to do anything to sign up – the discount is automatically applied to their bill. 

When he announced the scheme earlier this month, Chancellor Rishi Sunak said that the scheme would help the hospitality industry.

“Ensuring there is enough demand as businesses reopen is key to helping these businesses recover and have the confidence to protect jobs and rehire,” he said.

“Therefore, to encourage people to safely return to eating out at restaurants the Government’s new Eat Out to Help Out discount scheme will provide a 50% reduction for sit-down meals in cafes, restaurants and pubs across the UK from Monday to Wednesday every week throughout August 2020.”

And the industry is also helped by a reduction in VAT from 20% to 5%, which Mr Sunak says “will save households around £160 per year on average and, together with the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme, will support over 2.4 million staff at over 150,000 businesses, helping them recover and reopen after the Covid-19 lockdown”. 

Here we round up the venues taking part – please note, not all restaurants have signed up yet.
