Thousands of London restaurants have signed up to the government’s half-price-grub scheme, Eat Out to Help Out, which entitles to get 50 per cent off the cost of food when eating Monday to Wednesday in August. That’s a lot of great deals to navigate.
The scheme has been pretty popular so far. Many of the best-rated London restaurants are already booked up for the term of the promotion. So how the hell do you get a hot table near you for a cheap feed over the next weeks?
That’s the question the developers behind Eat to Help are aspiring to answer. They’ve plugged the list of establishments participating in the scheme into a helpful map so that users can insert their postcode and plan a half-price trip – or even a food crawl – for the month ahead. You can already see a postcode-generated list on the government website, but who doesn’t love a map, eh?
So if your favourite local is fully booked from Monday to Wednesday, explore the restaurant around the corner you’ve meant to try. Got drinks booked in a local beer garden? Find a restaurant nearby for cheap eats after.
