A NEW Eat Out to Help Out postcode checker has been launched by the government to help you find places that are taking part.
The new scheme sees diners get 50 per cent off meals and non-alcoholic drinks, up to £10 a head, in restaurants, cafes and pubs throughout August.

Eat Out to Help Out launches on August 3 and will run until August 31, with the discount applying on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
But businesses don’t have to sign up to the new scheme.
If you’re wondering if your favourite chain is offering 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 finder is available on the GOV.uk website.
Eat Out to Help Out: Which restaurants, cafes and pubs are taking part?
THE following restaurants, cafes and pubs have already confirmed they'll be taking part in Eat Out to Help Out.
However, it won’t just be big brands who’ve signed up.
Thousands of local pubs and independent restaurant chains will also offer the scheme – so make sure you check the restaurant finder to see what’s available near you.
More places could sign up in the coming days before the scheme launches on August 3.
For now, the following places are confirmed to be offering Eat Out to Help Out:
- Costa Coffee
- Burger King
- Frankie and Benny’s
- Toby Carvery
- Oakman Inns
- Stonegate pubs
- Three Cheers Pub company
To find places near you offering the discount, simply enter your postcode and the webpage will bring up nearby businesses.
As of last week, 32,000 places had signed up to Eat Out to Help Out.
Big name brands that have already said they’ll be offering the discount include Wetherspoon, Nando’s and Costa.
We’ve got a list of other chains taking part in the deal in the box above.
In some cases, restaurants are offering Eat Out to Help Out on top of lower prices thanks to a VAT cut.
This means customers will benefit from both the VAT discount and Eat Out to Help Out in some establishments, but again, not all places will do this.
For example, you can get a quarter of Peri Peri chicken from Nando’s for £1.85 in August after the South African chicken chain decided to pass on its VAT cut to customers.
Meanwhile, Costa Coffee will be serving hot drinks from 32p next month if you’re using a reusable cup.
When The Sun used the online checker today using one London postcode, we found more than 100 restaurants, cafes and pubs were taking part in the local area.
