What is the Eat Out to Help Out scheme?
The Eat Out to Help Out promotion scheme launched by the Government is designed to help boost the hospitality industry by providing customers in restaurants, pubs and cafes a 50 percent discount on their meal.
This discount is available up to a maximum of £10 per head and runs from August 3 to 31.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said the scheme was supporting almost two million jobs.

Deliveroo CEO Will Shu believes the scheme would be important to helping businesses survive the difficulties following the coronavirus crisis.
He said: “Deliveroo is passionate about supporting local restaurants, who are central to our business and to so many high streets across the UK.
“Our restaurant partners play a vital role in our economy, just as they do people’s everyday lives, bringing people the food they love.
“We know they have been hit hard recently, and we hope Our Eat IN to Help Out scheme can play a part in helping their businesses through this difficult period.”
How can you get the Eat in to Help Out discount?
In total, around 16,000 restaurants across the country will be involved in the scheme.
National chains will not be included in the deal unless they opt to pick up the cost of this discount themselves.
Deliveroo has said customers will be given a code to use when a discount can be used which they can use before completing their order using the Deliveroo app.
