The Liverpool family-friendly restaurants taking part in Eat Out to Help Out
3 years ago
The kids have been chomping at the bit to get out and eat again – as have all the adults because it’s a great way of spending time together as a family.
And now restaurants are back open again, we’re being urged to Eat Out to Help Out…and we don’t need asking twice!
Throughout August, as an added incentive to go to restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, the Government is introducing Eat Out To Help Out, a promotion giving diners a discount of up to 50% when they eat in rather than takeaway at any of those who’ve signed up to take part.
The maximum discount available is £10 per person and you don’t have to do anything to claim it – everything will appear on the menu at full price, then the restaurant, pub or coffee shop will deduct the money off the bill and claim it back from the Government.
It’s only available on food and soft drinks you have on the premises from Monday to Wednesday and there’s no minimum spend.
Thousands of restaurants have signed up, including chains like McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Express and Pizza Hut which are always family-favourites. But here’s a few others in Liverpool you might like to go back to or try for the first time – and they’re all taking part…
The Liverpool ONE eaterie is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, there’s a great menu with grills, fish and chicken dishes galore and lots of veggie dishes too like their Spiced Cauliflower and Butternut Squash Falafel Bowl. Kids can enjoy Little Bill’s Breakfast or mains including Little Bill’s Hamburger and Macaroni Cheese so everyone’s happy. Book here.
