What a bargain!

Published

on

A classic Wetherspoons breakfast will be only £2.24 as part of the Government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme. 

More than 700 Spoons will be taking part in the government initiative, which sees people get 50% off food and soft drinks up to the maximum value of £10 per head.

The scheme runs from August 3rd to August 31st on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays. 

And there are some serious bargains to be had at Spoons!

The price of a traditional breakfast, which includes a free-range egg, bacon rasher, Lincolnshire sausage, hash brown, baked beans and coffee will be just £2.24.

You can add on a free refill of tea or coffee for just 65p. 

Or go all out for a classic burger with a soft drink of your choice for just £2.50. You’ll also be able to get a kids meal for £2.08. 

Founder Tim Martin said: “Thanks to the Government scheme, an individual is £2.93 better off eating and drinking at Wetherspoon than purchasing a similar range of products at Tesco.

“Over a 13 day period, customers would save £38.09. As Tesco’s customers will appreciate, every little helps.

“Prices at some of our town and city centre pubs are higher and the comparison with Tesco does not work in these cases. However, the vast majority of our pubs will be offering a range of meals with a drink at unbeatable prices.”

More than 32,000 restaurants have signed up to the scheme including Nando’s, Wagamama and McDonald’s

An Aldi spokesperson at the time said: “No one knows exactly how the situation will have changed by December but one thing we’re sure of is that Christmas won’t be cancelled.

“What we’re going through now and have been through, means people are going to be even more focused on celebrating with their household, sharing food and drink and gifts with their families, and that’s where Aldi comes in.”

The Manchester bars now serving food to stay open in tier 3

Show your support where you can.

Several bars are now serving food so they can stay open in the new tier 3 restrictions.

Tier 3 restrictions are now in place in Greater Manchester meaning bars not serving ‘substantial’ meals have to close, estimated at 2,000 venues. 

However, many bars who have been open since July 4th with new Covid-secure measures in place are quickly adapting their offering to now serving food so they can remain open.

Anything ‘like a main lunchtime or evening meal’ is deemed ‘substantial’ by the government’s official definition.

G-A-Y is now serving a low-price nostalgic food menu called ‘Not The Ivy But Substantial’. 

The menu includes a range of brilliant grub all for £2, including beans on toast, jacket potatoes, and cheese and tomato pizza with chips.

The Sis4ers gin distillery has launched a new afternoon tea concept while the Red Lion Inn in Whitworth is offering £1.50 beef dripping chip butties. The bar said ”some would say is a pretty… substantial meal… if you’re picking up what we’re putting down here’

Sammys Cocktail bar is now serving bagels at just £3, including salt beef, pastrami, smoked salmon and cream cheese and a vegan version of the smoked salmon bagel. 

Craft beer bar The Crooked Man in Prestwich is now hosting a pop up from SanSan, which includes massive sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and even their famous bacon waffle sandwich.

Popular takeaway shop Cafe Marhaba have offered up their services to pubs and bars to help them stay open. On Instagram they said: “We think we may be able to provide a pop up service or meal kits which you can put together to provide your customers with a substantial meal.” Send them a DM if you’re interested. 

Neighbourhood bar The Milliner in Stockport have quickly changed into a new restaurant Northern Scraps and will be selling bowls of veggie chilli for just £1. 

YES on Charles Street (just off Oxford Road) is now operating as a self-titled ‘yes-taurant’ keeping up its existing food trade as normal. You can get pizzas by the slice or whole as well as vegan Doner kebabs.

Common bar is now a family restaurant with its in-house partnership, Nell’s pizza available all day every day. 

Grub shared on Instagram that they will help any businesses without a substantial food offering by helping arrange a street food trader with them.
