Keep Eating Out To Help Out

08 September 2020

As August comes to a close, so does the Government’s Eat Out To Help Out scheme, which was launched to encourage people to get back out to their favourite bars, restaurants and other eateries.

Last month, 100 million meals were claimed under the scheme, as diners made the most of the state-backed 50% discount. Restaurants up and down the country have made over 130,000 claims, worth £522m, with more to come.

According to research from booking site OpenTable, restaurant reservations rose by 53% compared with the same period in August 2019.

But while the scheme may have come to a close on August 31, many venues within Colmore Business District have launched their own promotions and offers, to continue the buzz and allow you to grab a deal throughout September and beyond.

The conditions of the below offers all vary, so please do ring in advance to see when they are applicable.
