Eat Out to Help Out

This national government funded initiative runs throughout August on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays with a 50% discount off food and non alcoholic drinks up to a maximum saving of £10 per head at participating cafes, restaurants and pubs when you dine in.

This is a great opportunity to eat out at pubs that do food at the normally less busy part of the week at very reasonable prices – a main course normally costing a tenner will be reduced to a fiver, a meal normally costing £20 will be just £10 and a bar snack normally costing a fiver is reduced to basically some loose change!

A whole variety of pubs are taking part in this dining out scheme from community locals and cosy country pubs through to City Centre bars, food halls and gastropubs; both local independent operators and well known chains.

You can search for participating venues on the government website here. Alternatively there’s a handy map showing the pubs, cafes, restaurants and food halls taking part here.

Don’t forget government Covid-Safe restrictions remain in force – if you are sitting indoors you are limited to a maximum of two households sat together whilst outdoors in a beer garden it can be up to any six people sat together. Check with individual pubs for any requirements to book a table, revised opening hours etc. Links to pubs websites and social media are available on

If you are using public transport to get to the pub, all passengers are now welcome but you must by law wear a face covering unless exempt, you should look out for any social distancing measures in place on board and are asked to buy tickets by contactless means rather than cash where possible.
