All of the restaurants confirmed for the ‘Eat Out to Help Out Scheme’ including Nando’s, Wagamama & more

11 July 2020

Earlier this week the UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, announced radical new plans to help reboot the nation’s economy following months of coronavirus lockdown. Among them was the new “Eat Out to Help Out Scheme’ which will offer discounted food and drink to all customers at participating restaurants.

Rishi said, “To support restaurants and the people who work in them we’re saying ‘Eat Out to Help Out’. So for the month of August, we will give you a 50% reduction, up to £10 per head, on sit-down meals and non-alcoholic drinks Monday-Wednesday.”

Tax will also be cut from 20 per cent to 5 per cent across food, accommodations and attractions which is predicted to benefit businesses at a total of £4 billion and 2.4 million jobs.

Now, several big chain restaurants have confirmed their involvement in the scheme.

Those looking for discounted dine-in meals can head to Wagamama, Burger King, Nando’s, Pizza Hut, Prezzo, All Bar One, Browns, Frankie and Benny’s, Harvester and Toby Carvery.

Any business is able to register for the scheme from Monday (13th July) providing that they are registered as a food business with their local authority and that they provide a dining area for customers. The government will then refund the discount back to the business within five working days.
