Whether you were nervous about stepping back into a restaurant or couldn’t wait to dine out at your fave foodie spots once more, lots of us have taken advantage of the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme throughout August, which has granted diners with half price food and drink (up to a maximum value of £10 per diner) at participating eateries on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Following on from the success of the scheme, Deliveroo has launched ‘Eat In to Help Out’ for the month of September, in order to support small restaurants in this difficult time. As we ease into Autumn, our minds are more likely to turn to takeaways on the sofa anyway, so Deliveroo wants to pick up part of the bill to make your treat meal even sweeter.
From Monday to Wednesday during the whole of September, enter a special code (detailed below) and you’ll get £5 taken off your total bill for orders of £20 or more.
To claim the discount, the codes are as follows:
- EATIN1 between 1 – 2 September 2020
- EATIN2 between 7 – 9 September 2020
- EATIN3 between 14 – 16 September 2020
- EATIN4 between 21 – 23 September 2020
- EATIN5 between 28 – 30 September 2020
16,000 local restaurants have signed up to Deliveroo’s ‘Eat In to Help Out’ scheme and national chains are also being encouraged to participate if they fund the discount themselves.
And it’s even better news for new customers to Deliveroo – they can claim 14 days of free delivery for the months of September and October.
Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, has endorsed the scheme, saying: ‘This has been an incredibly difficult time for the hospitality sector, both during the lockdown and emerging from it. Thousands of restaurants and cafes forced to close during lockdown were thankfully able to continue trading in some way using delivery services such as Deliveroo. For small, independent and local firms this has been a lifeline.
‘Our Eat out to Help out scheme was designed to help restaurants reopen and protect the two million jobs in this sector, giving it the boost it needed. I hope that people will continue to show their support for this vitally important part of our economy and Deliveroo’s new Eat In to Help Out scheme is another way for them to do so.’
Monday night has become the new Friday night.
