Rishi Sunak is helping the struggling hospitality industry by ensuring that the government takes part of the bill for all guests who dine in August Monday through Wednesday – up to 50% off their meals – to a cap of £ 10 per person.
So for example if you and a friend go out for a slap in the face dinner on these days and spend a total of £ 40 more on food and non-alcoholic drinks – you’ll be entitled to £ 20 off! The deal does not cover alcohol and only applies to dinner with clients. You can use the discount as many times as you want from Monday to Wednesday.
All the restaurant has to do is claim the reduction from the government. And all you have to do is find a restaurant you like and make a reservation!

The discount applies only to food and non-alcoholic beverages and a service charge may be added to your bill.
Many Birmingham restaurants are also creating their own bargains thanks to the Chancellor’s temporary VAT cut for hospitality – which was also announced in his mini-budget.
Sumptuous downtown restaurant Opus on Cornwall Street offers 1lb Grilled Whole Native Lobster or Grilled 6oz Dry Aged Steak, both served with hand-cut fries and garlic butter. £ 27.50 per person for two courses every Friday and Saturday.
And the new kid on the block of Dishoom restaurants – offering half the price on all meals – so there’s no £ 10 limit.
Foodies should check with the restaurant of their choice for details on which days offers are available and whether entrees are accepted. It’s probably best to book if you can.
