Eating Out

Five restaurants still offering discounts in October

Rishi Sunak’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme has now come to an end, and most menu prices have returned to where they were pre-pandemic. Whilst we usually encourage supporting small, independent businesses, we understand this isn’t always possible in today’s economic climate, so we’ve found five restaurants still offering customers a significant discount on their meals throughout October – many up to the original 50% off. We hope that soon we’re able to find a balance and can continue to support our friends in a financially viable way.
