The Government has introduced the scheme from 3 to 31 August 2020 to encourage the public to support the hospitality sector as the economy looks to recover from the coronavirus lockdown. 
How it works 
 
The Eat Out to Help Out scheme provides a 50% to diners in participating cafes, pubs and restaurants – including those in hotels and even trains with dining areas. 
 
The key word is participating: owners and managers have to apply to the Government first so you shouldn't assume it's available everywhere. It might be a good idea to check before you order if you don't fancy paying full whack. 
 
Although the scheme officially runs from 3 to 31 August, it's only available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays between those dates, so weekend saving is out of the question. 
 
The 50% discount is capped at £10 per person and excludes service charges. Alcohol isn't covered so you can't grab a cheap pint, but all other food and drinks will be covered. 
 
What you get 
 
• you can get a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in up to a maximum of £10 a head. 
 
• It runs every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 
 
• take part as many times as you like. 
 
You do not need a voucher to use this scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend. 
 
1. You cannot claim discount on alcoholic drinks or service charges. 
 
2. This means a family of four can save £40 on a meal worth £80. 
 
3. You can find a restaurant registered in the scheme through this link here
