How does Eat Out to Help Out work?

Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the Eat Out to Help Out scheme earlier this year, which is intended to help the UK hospitality industry recover from months of closures.

Until August 31, diners can get half price meals at restaurants up and down the UK.

The discounts only apply when you eat in restaurants, and do not apply to takeaways.

The discounts are also capped at £10 per person.

But the number of times you can use the scheme is limitless, meaning you can visit as many restaurants as you like while the initiative is in place.

Thousands of businesses have already registered for the scheme, and if you want to find out what restaurants near you are signed up, the Government website now includes a postcode checker.

To delight of fans of the fast food chain, McDonalds is now offering many of its usual breakfast items once again.
