Diners can now find out which restaurants are taking part in the government’s Eat Out to Help scheme, which launches next week.
The government has launched a postcode tool to help diners find nearby eateries which are involved.
The initiative, which was announced earlier this month, will give people a discount of up to 50pc when eating or drinking soft drinks in a participating restaurant or other food establishment.
It will apply all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from August 3 to 31, in all parts of the UK not in a local lockdown.
The maximum discount available is £10 per person when you eat or drink in.
The government has launched a search tool to help you find the restaurants taking part within a five-mile radius of a given postcode.
