Restaurants, pubs and cafes will be offering half-price meals to diners during August in an attempt to boost the hospitality sector following the Covid-19 lockdown.

From Monday, members of the public will be able to enjoy 50% off eat-in meals ordered at participating outlets under the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

The offer, which is only available between Mondays and Wednesdays, will be capped at £10 per diner and does not apply to alcohol.

Vouchers are not required for those booking tables, with the participating eateries deducting 50% from the bill and charging the discount to the Treasury.

Here are some of the major chains taking part in the scheme.
