Government will pay your bill to the max of £10 per person in August
This week saw the start of the Government campaign 'Eat Out to Help Out' to encourage customers back to the hospitality trade.
The government will cover half of the cost of a meal out, up to £10 a head, including children's meals.
The means that a meal out for one that costs £20 will be reduced to £10, but a £25 meal for one will be slashed to £15 because of the £10 cap per person.
There is no limit to the number of times you can use the discount, so in theory you can get half price meals on every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in August. But remember you can only get a discount at a registered business.
Businesses will need to register with the scheme on Gov.uk before being able to offer the discount, as well as be Food Standards Agency approved. Restaurants, cafes and pubs will be able to claim back the cash, avoiding the risk of fraud if vouchers were provided, the refund is then transferred into restaurants, cafes and pubs' bank accounts within five working days.
Nicola Grant, Executive Director of Positively Putney said: "Diners will be able to receive 50% off their meal & non alcoholic drinks, up to £10! It’s a fantastic offer & we have many Putney restaurants & cafes participating. We strongly recommend booking in advance (as many restaurants require this already before arrival)."

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
