The chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme is a great opportunity for cafes and restaurants in Plymouth City Centre to boost their summer trade.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak unveiled the “eat out to help out” discount as part of a series of measures to restart the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic. It gives diners the opportunity to get a 50% discount off their restaurant bill if they eat out from Monday to Wednesday during August.

Why you should use the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme

It will incentivise customers to eat in your restaurant or other eating establishment by giving them a discount which you can then claim back from the government. The scheme is UK wide and customers will be able to see who is taking part on GOV.UK. The scheme will drum up custom on quieter days of the week and means you can build your business back up.

Businesses have to register to take part.
