Eat Out to Help Out: Can I take away food with the scheme? Rules explained

Even though you can’t use the discount for a takeaway, you are allowed to take home any leftover food that you used the discount for when you paid for it.

As long as you started eating the meal on the premises, then you can still get the discount off your food.

Additionally, alcoholic drinks are not included in the restaurant discount voucher scheme.

It doesn’t mean you will have to buy alcohol separately, however, as the restaurant will simply take the money off the food and soft drinks that you bought.
