More than a dozens restaurants across North Staffordshire have decided to extend the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ offer into this month – despite the scheme officially ending yesterday. (31st)
Chains including Toby Carvery, Pizza Hut and Harvester as well as a number of independents across the region have decided to continue to offer diners 50 per cent off food and soft drinks on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays – up to a maximum of £10 per head – following the scheme’s success in August.
So who is taking part?
The Toby Carvery restaurants in Trentham, Talke and Festival Park have agreed to keep the discounts going for the first two weeks of September, as have the two Harvester restaurants in Trentham.
While diners visiting Pizza Hut branches in Festival Park and Meir can benefit from two-for-one main meals on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from September 7 until the end of the month.
Tesco cafe and independent venues, including Caster’s in Alsager, The Mill Hotel in Stone and Harleys Smokehouse in Kinver, have agreed to continue to offer throughout September.
While Crewe Hall, in Crewe, is extending the deal until November.
Latest figures show that 84,000 venues across the country signed up to the Eat Out to Help Out scheme in August – with 64 million discounted meals being served up within the first three weeks alone.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak said: “This scheme has reminded us how much we love to dine out, and in doing so, how this is helping to protect the jobs of nearly two million people who work in hospitality.
“I am urging everyone, where they can, to continue to safely enjoy a meal while the scheme remains open.”
