How the scheme works and a handy list with local info – including places with outdoor seating and some with play areas!
The Eat Out to Help Out Scheme opens on 3rd August 2020. Diners who eat-in at participating establishments can automatically claim 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks, up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner. Establishments will then claim a reimbursement from the government.
You don’t need a voucher and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend. It’s available every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between 3rd and 31st August and you can use it as many times as you like. All diners (of all ages) in a group of any size can use the discount. Alcoholic drinks and service charges are excluded from the offer.
There’s a handy list below of just some of the pubs, restaurants and cafes participating in and around Gateshead. This list is not exhaustive. You can use the gov.uk website HERE to view basic details of 100 places within 5 miles – although it may not show participating restaurants in larger chains. You can also download a free app HERE, which offers a map view and you can search by food type.
If you have a recommendation to add to the list, let me know here🙂
Circumstances and guidelines are continually changing. Please do check full details of the measures in place and the latest updates directly with individual providers before making plans, particularly if outdoor seating is required. Walk-ins may be welcome even if not specified below, but booking may help to avoid disappointment. Links to menus are for illustrative purposes only, some places may be operating a reduced menu.
Always follow the latest Government guidelines on social distancing and protective measures, particularly if you or a member of your household is in a vulnerable group. Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms. Check the latest Government guidelines and updates here.
