Eat Out to Help Out: Participating Restaurants & Cafes in Bath, UK

*Please note that due to the number of businesses that have signed up, some restaurants & cafes may be missing. If you would like us to add one, please direct message us on instagram here: @batheats*

From 3-31 August, the government has implemented an 'Eat out to Help out' scheme. What does this mean for us diners? 🤔

Between 3-31 August, you can get up to a 50% discount (😱) on food & non-alcoholic drinks (up to a maximum of £10 per diner), every Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. You can do this as many times as you like (so you could go every single Mon-Weds in August and get 50% off participating restaurants). For more information on the scheme please click here for the government's website.

We've scoured the internet for all the places in Bath that have signed up to the scheme & have attempted to categorise them here. We hope that you find this list useful - please do let us know via DM on instagram where you end up going. I've personally booked a couple of the more expensive restaurants (e.g. Henry's) that I've always wanted to try and can now do so for a fraction of the price! 

For our favourites, we've added a ✨ next to them (if one of your favourites doesn't have this next to them, it doesn't mean that we don't like it - we just may have never been ourselves so can't comment).

Vegan & vegetarian places have a little 🌱 by them.

Enjoy! 😘

P.S. This works for eat-in only! Takeaways are excluded.

P.P.S. I've also included some places outside of Bath (within 50 minutes) which are right at the bottom of this guide. There are some real gems there so be sure to check it out!
