The governments eat out to help out scheme began today which allows people to get 50% off food at participating restaurants on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August.
Use the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme at a participating establishment:
to get a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner)
every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between 3 and 31 August as many times as you like
You do not 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.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said:
Restaurants and other eligible establishments are now able to support jobs by signing up to the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme.
HMRC’s quick and easy registration page will soon have you on your way to welcoming back your customers with discounted dining on every Monday to Wednesday throughout August, with a simple process to reclaim these discounts back from the government each week.
Jim Harra, Chief Executive and First Permanent Secretary of HMRC, said:
The hospitality industry is among the sectors worst affected by COVID-19. The Eat Out to Help Out Scheme will deliver support to more than 100,000 businesses, including restaurants, cafes and bars serving food and drink, helping to protect 1.8 million jobs across the UK.
Registering is easy, and we urge businesses to sign up early so they are ready to use the scheme when it starts on 3 August.
Businesses have made great efforts to re-open their sit-down services safely in line with social distancing guidance, so people can feel confident to dine out again.
Businesses can find information about the scheme and how to register online at GOV.UK.
