Places to eat taking part in the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme in Gainsborough

Eateries that have signed up to take part in the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme in and around Gainsborough have been revealed.

Until August 31, diners will get a 50 per cent discount on food and non-alcoholic drinks (a maximum of £10 per person) at these establishments.

It will apply for every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during the month, in a bid to encourage the economy to flourish after months of lockdown and help drum up custom on quieter days of the week and means businesses can start to build back up.

It is hoped the scheme will incentivise customers to eat in restaurants or other eating establishments.

The discount will be available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Picture: BEN STANSALL/AFP via Getty.
