The Eat Out to Help Out Scheme opens on 3 August 2020.

Use the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme at a participating establishment:

  • to get a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner)
  • every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between 3 and 31 August
  • as many times as you like

You don’t need a voucher to use this scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend.

You cannot claim discount on alcoholic drinks or service charges.

The discount will be automatically available to you at participating establishments. Establishments will then claim a reimbursement from the government for the discount they’ve given you.

Participating establishments may include:

  • restaurants, cafés, bars or pubs
  • work and school canteens
  • food halls

All diners in a group of any size can use the discount.

If you’re in an area under local lockdown

You should follow local guidelines if you’re in an area under local lockdown. Local restaurants may still appear in the results when you use the restaurant finder tool, but will not be open.

Find a restaurant

The service you’ll use to find a restaurant is not available yet. It will be available by 31 July.

You will get results within a 2 mile radius of the postcode you use.

Some restaurants may not have registered for the scheme yet.

Help you can get

You can report fraud to HMRC if you think an establishment is abusing the scheme.

NHS have introduced the test and trace service to help track the spread of coronavirus.
