A NEW Eat Out to Help Out postcode checker has been launched by the government that allows you to find which businesses in and around Redditch are taking part in the scheme.

Eat Out to Help Out officially begins today (Monday, August 3).

Customers will be able to get a 50 per cent discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks (up to a £10 discount per diner) at participating establishments.

The scheme will run every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between the start of next week and Monday, August 31.

You can use the scheme as many times as you like and the discount is automatically applied by the restaurant or establishment.

Diners can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts and there is no minimum spend - but you cannot claim a discount on alcoholic drinks or service charges.

Establishments will claim a reimbursement from the government for the discount they’ve given.

Participating establishments may include restaurants, cafés, bars or pubs, work and school canteens and food halls.

All diners in a group of any size can use the discount.

These are the restaurants registered so far for the scheme within five miles of Redditch town centre.
