Eat Out to Help Out scheme set to start

29 Jul 2020

The government's landmark Eat Out to Help Out scheme will start at the beginning of August and run throughout the month.

The scheme was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in his Summer Economic Update. It will provide a 50% reduction for sit-down meals in participating cafes, restaurants and pubs across the UK from Monday to Wednesday every week throughout August 2020.

More than 53,000 outlets have so far signed up to the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

Those establishments taking part in the scheme will display stickers and posters in their windows. Diners can take advantage of the offer as many times as they like during the month and do not need to present a voucher.

Commenting on the scheme, the Chancellor said: 'Our restaurants, cafes and bars play a vital role in our economy, employing more than a million people. They have been hit hard by coronavirus, so it's vital we do everything we can to help them recover.

'Our Eat Out to Help Out scheme is designed to get more customers through the door, protecting jobs by giving businesses the confidence to retain and hire staff.'
