These fabulous London restaurants will give you £10 off your bill throughout October. It’s time to get booking.
It might sound too good to be true, but a number of London restaurants have pledged to continue the Eat Out to Help Out scheme throughout October, giving diners up to £10 off their bill for food and non-alcoholic drinks.
The discount was originally announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak on 8 July, to reinvigorate the hospitality industry which suffered a huge financial hit after closing down for months over lockdown.
The government’s scheme only ran for the month of August, but there were calls for it to continue throughout autumn and many restaurants decided to offer the discount at a loss to themselves throughout September, to encourage customers back.
The Eat Out to Help Out scheme has been widely applauded, although there were some negative headlines after a review of inflation rates revealed that August was the lowest month the UK has had in five years, plummeting our inflation rate from 1% to 0.2%.
But it looks like we’re squeezing one more month out of this deal yet, as a select amount of restaurants in London have announced that they will be continuing to give diners cheaper meals throughout October.
Here we’ve picked out our favourite places to eat in the capital offering savings on your meals this month.
