An Eat Out to Help Out zip code checker has been launched by the government to help you find participating places.
The new scheme allows diners to get 50% off meals and non-alcoholic drinks, up to £ 10 per head, in restaurants, cafes and pubs throughout August.
Eat Out to Help Out will launch this Monday August 3 and will last until August 31, with the discount applying on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
But companies don’t have to join the new program.
If you’re wondering if your favorite channel has Eat Out to Help Out, the government has launched a postcode checker to see what’s available in your area.
The Eat Out to Help Out restaurant search engine is available on the GOV.uk website.

When The Sun used the online checker today using a London postcode, we found over 100 participating restaurants, cafes and pubs in the area.
We have a list of other channels participating in the deal in the box above.
In addition, you can also use a new app to see which Eat Out to Help Out restaurants, pubs and cafes are near you.
This is separate from the government postal code checker.
In some cases, restaurants offer Eat Out to Help Out in addition to lower prices through reduced VAT.
VAT has been reduced from 20 percent to just 5 percent for businesses in the tourism and hospitality sectors.
This means that customers could benefit from both the VAT reduction and Eating Out to Help – but again, not all establishments will cut prices after the VAT reduction.
For example, you can get a quarter of Peri Peri chicken at Nando’s for £ 1.85 in August after the South African chicken chain decided to pass its VAT cut on to its customers.
Meanwhile, Costa Coffee will serve hot drinks from 32 pence next month if you use a reusable mug.
