Which restaurants are taking part in the Eat Out To Help Out scheme? Does it apply in Scotland? And what are the terms and conditions? Here’s all the frequently asked questions you need the answers too.
Following the hit the economy has taken thanks to the pandemic, Rishi Sunak announced a short-term VAT cut and the Eat Out To Help Out scheme to encourage us all back out again.
So how does the voucher scheme work and will it be valid in Scotland as well? What’s the restaurant list of those taking part? And what are the terms and conditions? Here’s everything you need to know:
Food and non-alcoholic drinks consumed at participating food establishments will give customers 50 per cent off which the company can then claim back from the government.
The discount will automatically be applied to bills, capped at £10 per person, so you don’t have to worry about presenting a voucher. It isn’t valid for takeaways.
The offer will begin on August 3rd and will only be offered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
The voucher scheme will last for the whole of August only and can be used as many times as you want.
You can! Your voucher will be applied first and then the further 50% will be deducted off the final price.
The voucher is applied to all food and non-alcoholic drinks as well as children meals, no food should be exempt.
Service charge will be excluded.
The list of restaurants and cafe’s participating, which are also valid in Scotland, aren’t fully complete yet but so far, these eatery’s have signed up:
