Having seen restaurants, bars and eateries close during the coronavirus pandemic, The Government will launch an 'eat out to help out' discount scheme in August, giving people across the UK a 50% discount, capped at £10 per person, on meals out.


In a bid to help the hospitality industry and boost the economy, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, confirmed the scheme would run from Monday to Wednesday each week at participating businesses, from the 3rd to the end of the month of August. Sunak also said he would cut VAT from 20% to 5% for the hospitality and tourism sectors from Wednesday 15 July until 12 January 2021.

A full list of participating outlets is available to view by clicking the button below, but some of those available are: All Bar One, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Wetherspoons, Browns, Wagamama and Prezzo to name a few.

Use Eat Out to Help Out Scheme and participating outlets:

Get 50% off your food and non-alcoholic drinks up to a total value of £10 per person if you eat or drink in

Use as many times as you like

You don’t need a voucher to use this scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend.

You cannot claim discount on alcoholic drinks or service charges.

The discount will be automatically available to you at participating establishments. Establishments will then claim a reimbursement from the government for the discount they’ve given you.

Participating establishments may include:

  • restaurants, cafés, bars or pubs

  • work and school canteens

  • food halls

All diners in a group of any size can use the discount.
