Eat Out to Help Out - All You Need to Know and Where There is to Go

From the 3rd to 31st August you can get a 50% discount when eating in at restaurants participating in the Governments Eat Out to Help Out scheme. The Scheme has been introduced by the UK Government to help boost the local economy and support local restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs to recover from the Covid-19 lockdown. 

Andrew commented "This is an incredible scheme that will really help to get local restaurants, cafes and pubs back on track following the lockdown. The level of support provided by the UK Government during lockdown was unprecedented, however, most small business owners are still concerned about the speed of recovery and how quickly they can re-establish their business, this will be a huge boost to them. It is also fantastic news for families wishing to get out for a meal together after so long in lockdown. I encourage everyone to get involved."

Where can I use it?

The discount applies at any participating venue - a list of currently registered participants in West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine is available below. Participating venues include restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars, food halls and work canteens.

When can I use it?
