Eat Out to Help Out scheme made easy – London

By Lindsey Roberts – 16 August 2020

We’re about to head into week three of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. If you haven’t heard of it – where have you been?! Organised by the Government, it’s a way to encourage diners back into eating out post-Coronavirus. Monday to Wednesday you can enjoy 50% off your total food bill (excluding alcohol, up to a maximum of ten pounds per person) at a huge range of cafes, pubs, and restaurants.

We thought we’d share some of our favourites to give you some inspo. And then you’d best get booking because I know that reservations are disappearing fast!

We’ve also included an ‘area’ list too – with a link straight to the search page on the Government website for that particular area. The link includes 100 places to whet your appetite – so that means you can sit back, relax and book some of your favourite places to eat.

Area list:

We’ve included a link to some areas in London below that we’ve covered in the next section below. This link will take you straight to the Government webiste and give you 100 places to choose from. Enjoy!
