As of August 3, the governments Eat Out To Help Out scheme is coming into play. The campaign’s main goal is to offer every diner 50% off their meal (up to £10pp), get families out eating and pump some money back into restaurants, bars and cafes. As one of the first to close and the last to open, the food and beverage industry is on its knees. This government scheme will hopefully aid the hospitality sector by securing jobs and reducing restaurant closures.
While there are big chains like Nandos and McDonald’s opting in on the scheme, I’ve focused this post on Manchester-based eateries who are offering you up a serious treat. Support your locals and your independents!
This is by no means a full list of establishments offering the Eat Out To Help Out scheme. To see more please visit this site.
From humble beginnings in Ancoats to total domination across the North of England, Rudy’s is the king of Neapolitan Pizzas. Their take on the Eat Out To Help Out scheme is an offer of mammoth proportions. For £10, you can grab any pizza, a side or an extra topping, a desert, a Kimbo coffee and a glass of house wine or pint of beer. What a STEAL. If you are still in two minds, read our review here.
Our favourite part-time pizza parlour and Mezcal bar, Crazy Pedro’s, is giving us the goods this August. By helping out the hospitality industry, Pedro’s are giving you 50% off their gargantuan pies. That means you can bite into a 16” Kimbo Slice or Nacho Libre pizza for only 8 quid. Sodas, Red Bull’s and juices are also included in the 50% off deal. Your Monday night Munchies are sorted.
While solid details are yet to be released, we know that GRUB will pull something special from underneath their cloaks this August. Now situated at the Redbank Project rather than their former Mayfield home (which has been taken over by Escape To Freight Island) expect something wholesome and unique when it comes to GRUB.
Plant-based eatery Vertigo is arguably hosting the best Eat Out To Help Out offering of them all. On Mondays, you can grab literally everything half price. That means a delightful 2-course brunch, a fancy 3-course evening meal or just a simple afternoon tea for £10pp. Booking is advised as spots to dine vegan are filling up fast. You can reserve your spot here.
Keeping it smart and simple, Evelyn’s is offering 50% off your food bill. The offer will be running from August 3 at the aesthetically-pleasing Northern Quarter spot. That means half-price spicy Shakshuka or creamy Thai Green Curry is on the cards. Rumour has it that pink paradise, The Daisy, is set to reopen on Saturday nights also… These are exciting times.
Bringing a sweet and sanguine slice of summer to Edge Street, Liquor & Burn are eagerly awaiting your presence this August. This sunshine hub has slashed their prices, meaning you can dig into their signature vegan Ariana Grande burrito as well as a tray of their Fresh As Fuck nachos for half price. Go on, treat yourself – you deserve it.
Formerly CULTRAPLEX and the new home of Gooey (the fittest cookies and doughnuts we’ve ever seen) – Ducie Street Warehouse are doing serious deals this August. While specific details are yet to be released, the hub of good beer, better wine and fantastic times is definitely on-board and offering 50% off. We cannot wait to see what moreish flavours they have in-store for us. Go on – Eat Out To Help Out.
A perfect breakfast of piled-high pancakes washed down with a creamy coconut cappuccino. Sounds like the stuff of dreams? You’ll not believe it when we tell you; but you can get it all and more for half price at Home Sweet Home. The quirky Edge Street mothership is offering a mammoth 50% discount up to the value of £20. We can already taste that perfect Eggs Benedict. Wake up with Home Sweet Home this August. Book via Opentable here.
Elegant Spanish-inspired tapas dishes, a smorgasbord of exciting drinks and not to mention *that* gorgeous rooftop bar setting – what is not to love about El Gato Negro?
