Cambridgeshire restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme

Eat out to help out Cambridgeshire restaurants

The Government has launched the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme which encourages diners to go out midweek whilst taking advantage of a discount throughout the month of August. Cambridgeshire restaurants are signing up for the scheme which will see them offer discounts to their diners but also gain this money back from the government.

What is the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme:

The discount can be applied to food and/or non-alcoholic drink purchased for immediate consumption on premises, up to a maximum discount of £10 per diner (inclusive of VAT).

  • The discount will be available all day, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 31 August 2020 (check restaurants for full opening times depending on location).
  • The offer includes 50% discount, up to a maximum of £10 per person, to diners for food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in.

There is no limit to the number of times customers can use the offer during the period of the scheme. Alcohol and service charges are excluded from the offer.

*Please check ahead of any menus, opening hours, timings and T&C’s for each individual restaurant. Social distancing and track and trace may be required.
