Lots of half price meals are up for grabs next month as part of the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, which kicks off on August 3rd.
The government’s scheme will see diners able to get 50% off their bill up to a value of £10 per head on food and soft drinks.
The scheme kicks off on Monday for the full month of August, as part of the government’s incentives to boost the economy and save jobs in the hospitality sector – which has taken a massive blow due to the pandemic.
Plenty of popular high street chains have registered with the scheme and are also benefiting from a 15% VAT cut.
The discounts can be used on top of other promotions, so we’re all in for a really cheap August!
According to HMRC, over 53,000 restaurants had signed up to the scheme by midnight on July 26th.
The list includes tonnes of popular chains, including Nando’s where diners will be able to get a quarter Peri Peri chicken for just £1.85, and McDonald’s, which sees prices as low as 49p. See the full list of McDonald’s new prices here.

You can grab half-price Krispy Kreme doughnuts under the new Eat Out to Help Out scheme, even if you’re taking away.
The American doughnut chain, which is easily everybody’s favourite, has opted into the government’s latest scheme, seeing them slash prices Monday through to Wednesday.
Customers can grab 50% off meals up to £10 per head when they dine in a restaurant.
However, many people have been gutted this means you can’t takeaway some of their favourite foods.
Well, while some of the Krispy Kreme stores in Manchester are actually offering the deal on all doughnuts when you eat in, there’s even better news if you’re a fan of the classic original glazed doughnuts – as there’s an extra special offer to be had!
They have also extended the offer to takeaway original glazed doughnuts, meaning you can grab 12 original doughnuts for just £5.23 and eat them wherever you want.
The deal is available at Manchester Trafford Box and Manchester Trafford Park Hotlight, where you can eat in until 7pm and the drive-thru is open until 10pm.

If you’re a keen Christmas shopper, you can bag these boxes for just £4 in Tesco at the minute! You can also find them online at the same price.
It turns out everyone is buzzing with some users commenting: “Temped to get out of my pjs and run down to Tescos purely for these beauts”.
Another pointed out just how mental this year has been with the comment:”2020 has no rules. might put might put up my christmas tree Sunday and eat an out of date cadbury creme egg”.
An eager beaver commented that Quality Street tubs are also available in some B&M stores – so keep your eyes peeled!
With these huge boxes of chocolates back on the shelves and the threat of another nationwide lockdown, we might just have ourselves a toilet roll situation like in March 2020 – but with Christmas Celebrations boxes… in August.
