The scheme begins tomorrow (September 1).
Wetherspoons has pledged to keep on offering discounted meals out at its restaurants. This is set to follow the end of the government’s “Eat Out To Help Out” scheme closing today.
The original scheme gave participating restaurants the subsidiary funds to offer 50% off per head when customers spent up to £10.
A petition launched to ask the government to continue to prop up the hospitality industry after struggling throughout the UK lockdown. However, as of now, this has not materialised. And, Wetherspoons is the latest spot to pledge the continuation of discounts at their spots.
‘Spoons are offering food discounts on Monday-Wednesdays, until November 11. They’ve promised to make their classic beef burger “even better value than McDonald’s”. As with the Eat Out scheme, alcoholic beverages will not be discounted.
The government have confirmed that, since the original scheme began, more than 64 million meals have been claimed.
Other spots have decided to continue the scheme themselves, such as Toby Carvery and Harvester.
