Today, the 8th of July, during the Summer Mini Budget Statement, the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak announced several government schemes to help the economy. One in particular is the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme to boost the hospitality industry.
How Does Eat Out to Help Out Work?
Starting on next month, August, every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; customers that eat out will get 50% off of their order, up to £10.00 per person.
Does Eat Out to Help Out apply to takeaways?
Unfortunately, the Eat Out to Help Out initiative only applies to restaurants, pubs and other sit in eateries. This means, the Romford Dragon and other Chinese takeaways in Romford will not be able to participate. 😞
However, we still have some tasty deals here at the Romford Dragon that everyone can tap into if they do not feel safe out.
What Restaurants are Participating in the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme?
We don’t normally promote other businesses, but this is a good time to get the food industry back on its feet, plus supporting local businesses; so we would recommend this handy guide from the Romford Recorder to see what restaurants are offering this in Romford. If you are not from Romford however, check out the government’s website to see what other places offering in your local area.
What Days are the Eat Out to Help Out Discount Available?
Starting on Monday the 3rd of August and ending on the Monday 31st of August, here are all the dates you can get 50% off of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme:
Week 1 – Monday 3rd of August, Tuesday 4th of August and Wednesday 5th of August.
