Eat Out to Help Out our county’s venues

Published Friday, 31st July 2020

Worcestershire County Council is supporting our hospitality industry to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic and thrive as the Eat Out to Help Out campaign gets under way.

People can get a 50% discount when they eat in at restaurants, cafés, bars or pubs that are registered with the scheme from 3 to 31 August.

Dozens of eateries across the county are taking part in the Central Government-backed project which is offering support to outlets safely reopening as lockdown has eased.

Councillor Ken Pollock, Cabinet Member for Economy and Infrastructure, said: “We’re right behind the Eat Out to Help Out scheme which we believe will support our county’s hospitality industry.

“The industry has been through an incredibly tough period yet this is a chance for us all to help.

“By dining out you’ll be supporting businesses and jobs which are vital to the county’s economy.” 

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme, at participating venues, offers a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner.

It can be used every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as many times as you like during the period.

Dave Sanders, owns Toast, based at The Flyford, at Old Hill, Worcester, which is among the venues taking part in the scheme.

He said: “We think it’s an outstanding idea to bring more custom to our industry.
 
“It’s been a very hard time since closing and we are hoping that this will give the industry a boost to keep as many small business going as possible.” 
 
People do not need a voucher to use the scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend.

Alcoholic drinks and service charges are excluded from the offer.
