The government's new Eat Out to Help Out scheme, which runs from today until August 31, is intended to help our restaurant sector so badly hit by the pandemic. It offers a 50% discount on food and non-alcoholic drinks from Mondays to Wednesdays, up to a maximum saving of £10 per diner. Hopefully the scheme will encourage us to dine out earlier each week when the footfall for restaurants can be more challenging. Northern Ireland people love their food - and a bargain even more - so what better way is there to combine both and to help your favourite restaurant get back on its feet?
A little food for thought will help everyone.
