Bill’s restaurants announce Eat Out To Help Out will continue in September with £10 deal
Anyone who missed going out to their local restaurant during the lockdown will no doubt have enjoyed the special offer throughout August that slashed prices for diners. The Eat Out To Help Out scheme launched at the start of the month as the Chancellor Rishi Sunak urged Britons to support the restaurant industry. But as it comes to an end, some chains will be hoping to keep enticing customers back – and Bill’s is one of the first chains to reveal its plans for September.
Bill’s has today announced that it will be continuing a special offer similar to the Eat Out To Help Out scheme for September.
The current scheme gives diners up to 50 percent off their meals, with a maximum saving of £10 per head.
The deal is only available Mondays to Wednesdays at participating restaurants around the country.
It means that a group of four could save up to £40 off their food bill at more than 72,000 establishments that have joined in the scheme, including Pizza Express, Costa Coffee and Nando’s.

However, while the offer is set to end on August 31, 2020, Bill’s has decided to keep offering diners a great deal to keep business going.
The chain will continue to offer up to 50 percent off on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout September.
Bill’s is launching a new set menu for the September deal, which will give its guests the chance to eat out for as little as £10.
The set menu includes starters and mains, and gives customers the choice of a one course or two course meal with up to 50 percent off.

Diners can order just one course from the menu for £10, or opt for two courses for the bargain price of £14.50.
However, the discount is only available for the new menu – unlike the current Eat Out To Help Out scheme.
Until the end of August, Bill’s is offering up to 50 percent off food and non-alcoholic drinks across all menus including A La Carte as part of the Chancellor’s scheme.
The restaurant chain has also been serving up two special set menus with £10 off as well as a complimentary glass of wine.
The new bespoke menu will include the following dishes:
Truffalos – Vegan truffled buffalo “wings” with a vegan cheese dip & celery
Carrot, Lentil and Cumin Soup with toasted Focaccia
Crispy Chicken and Sesame Dumplings
Crispy Calamari with red chilli & lime aioli
8oz Sirloin Steak with Rosemary salted fries
Chargrilled Chicken Breast with truffle mashed potato
Pan fried Sea Bass and Prosecco Hollandaise
Mushroom and Truffle Risotto
The news comes after the Chancellor talked about the idea of continuing the restaurant initiative on Channel 5 News on Tuesday.
Sunak denied that it would continue, insisting: “That’s not the plan, the idea of this was to try and encourage people to get out.”
But it seems many businesses will be continuing to offer their own discounts in a bid to keep diners coming back for more as the recession hits.
A petition has even launched online with customers pleading with the government to extend the current scheme to help protect jobs in case of a second wave or lockdown as winter approaches.
