The state-backed Eat Out to Help Out initiative runs throughout August, and is designed to give the struggling hospitality industry a shot in the arm while encouraging people to venture out to pubs, cafés and restaurants again.
It gives customers 50 per cent off their bills for food and non-alcoholic drinks, up to a maximum of £10 off per person, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Food and drink must be consumed on the premises, not taken away, and businesses can claim the cost of the discount back from HMRC.
