Local MP Stephen McPartland has welcomed the Eat Out To Help Out Scheme, which will give people in Stevenage and surrounding area up to 50 per cent off their bills in restaurants, cafes and pubs Mondays,Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “The Eat Out To Help Out scheme is a great way to boost local businesses and protect jobs across our hospitality sector – which has been hard hit by coronavirus – while allowing families to keep more money in their pockets.

“I know from a number of cafes and restaurants locally how much this is helping them. It really is protecting jobs in our area and helping small businesses that are the backbone of our community. It is great value for the family too, so please do eat out healthily to help out.”

The Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak added, “Our Eat Out to Help Out scheme’s number one aim is to help protect the jobs of 1.8 million chefs, waiters, pub owners and restaurateurs by boosting demand and getting customers through the door.”

The scheme – part of the government’s Plan for Jobs that will spur the country’s economic recovery from coronavirus – applies to all food and non-alcoholic drinks, with a maximum discount per person of £10. More than 72,000 establishments are participating in total, including independent eateries and family favourites such as Pizza Express, Costa Coffee and Nando’s.
