Coronavirus – Eat Out to Help Out Scheme
Under this scheme, restaurants, cafes etc are able to offer a 50% discount (up to a maximum of £10 per person) on ‘eat in’ meals, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 3 August and 31 August 2020.
Businesses need to register for the scheme online and require a Government Gateway Account to be able to access the scheme. If a business does not have a Government Gateway Account, it is possible to set one up during the registration process.
