Eat out to help out: Where to dine on a discount

WANT to know which local eateries are joining the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme this month? Here’s your comprehensive guide to Washington’s dining deals.

From today, August 3 to August 31, thanks to Number 10’s initiative to get diners back into restaurants, some establishments will be offering a 50 per cent discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in, which will apply up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner.

The scheme is in effect every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for the next four weeks and customers are welcome to the discount as many times as they like until the end of next month.

A voucher is not needed to use this scheme, there is no minimum spend and it can be used in combination with other offers and discounts. However, the deal will not be available on alcoholic drinks or service charges.

The discount will be automatically available at participating establishments and establishments will then claim a reimbursement from the government for the discount they’ve provided.
