FROM today, residents up and down the country are being asked to do their bit to support the hospitality industry by taking advantage of the Government's Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between August 3 and 31, participating restaurants and eateries will offer 50 per cent off food and non-alcoholic drinks up to a total value of £10 per person.

You don’t need a voucher to use the scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend. Establishments will then claim a reimbursement from the government for the discount they’ve given you.

The initiative was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak and aims to give hospitality businesses a boost, as well as giving diners confidence to go out for a meal in the 'new normal' as lockdown is eased.

If you're planning to make the most of the scheme - here is a list of restaurants that come up when searching with a Weymouth, Portland or Dorchester post code.
