Today the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, announced the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, as part of the Plan for Jobs 2020 update.
The scheme will support over 129,000 businesses in the hospitality industry. Diners can get 50% off meals and non-alcoholic drinks, up to £10 per person, at participating restaurants, bars and cafes when they eat in.
The scheme is valid all day every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during August. Participating restaurants and establishments will be reimbursed for the discount they pass onto customers.
Detailed guidance on the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, and registration details for restaurants and establishments will be published on Thursday 9th July. Restaurants and outlets can register for the scheme from Monday 13 July.
