MCDONALD’s, Nando’s, KFC and Costa Coffee are just some of the big-name restaurant chains that are taking part in Eat Out to Help Out from next week.
Here we reveal some of the best discounts you’ll find.
Brits get 50 per cent off meals and non-alcoholic drinks, up to £10 a head, throughout August as part of Eat Out to Help Out.
The new scheme launches on August 3 and will run until August 31, with the discount applying on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Businesses don’t have to sign up to the new scheme – they have to voluntarily register.
But fast food fans will be pleased to know there are plenty of chains taking part.
Here’s what we found.
Big Mac medium meal with fries and drink
KFC 10-piece bargain bucket
Half Peri Peri chicken and two sides
Small filter coffee
*To get a coffee for 32p, you’ll have to bring your own mug and ask for the additional 25p reusable cup discount.
Eat Out to Help Out was announced on July 8 by Chancellor Rishi Sunak as part of his mini-Budget.
It will see the government cover 50 per cent of the cost of a meal out and non-alcohol drinks, up to £10 a head, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.
This includes both adult and children’s meals.
The new scheme is due to start next week, on Monday August 3 and will run until August 31.
As part of the offer, a meal out for one that costs £20 will be reduced to £10 – but a £25 meal for one will be slashed to £15 because of the £10 cap per person.
There is no limit to the number of times you can use the discount, and it can be used on top of additional vouchers and offers.
Instead of issuing discount vouchers, restaurants, cafes and pubs will be able to claim back the cash from the government.
The refund will then been transferred into the businesses’ bank account within five working days.
As well as the restaurant chains we’ve already mentioned, the following places have also said they’ll be taking part.
Crucially, it’s not just big brands that can sign up – so make sure you check your local pub or restaurant to see if they’re offering Eat Out to Help Out.
More places could also sign up in the coming days before the scheme launches on August 3.
The government has launched a new postcode checker so you can see which places near you offer Eat Out to Help Out.
A new app has also been launched to help you locate participating restaurants, pubs and cafes.
Plus, here are the Eat Out to Help Out posters to look out for in restaurants to get 50 per cent off.
