Cambridge restaurants extend Eat Out to Help Out discount through September
Two Cambridge restaurants will extend the discount from the Eat Out to Help Out scheme through September at their own cost.
The government-funded scheme provided 50 per cent off meals up to a value of £10 per diner at participating restaurants and bars on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August. It came to an end on Monday August 31.
But the offer proved so popular at getting customers back into the habit of eating out that SIX, the panoramic bar and brasserie at The Varsity Hotel , and Bill’s Cambridge are continuing with the deal this month.
SIX, on Thompson’s Lane, served a record number of customers in August - with covers up 20 per cent on pre-coronavirus levels.
General manager Valter Santos said: “The Eat Out to Help Out scheme has been hugely popular. To help Cambridge diners in these challenging times, we will be covering the cost of extending the scheme ourselves, providing 50 per cent off food, up to a maximum of a £10 discount per person, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in September.
“We’re pleased to continue welcoming both old customers and individuals who are experiencing SIX for the first time. We have all the necessary safety measures to protect the wellbeing of staff and guests and we’re still delivering a wonderful dining experience for all visitors.”
Bill’s Cambridge, in Green Street, will offer a set menu that offers up to 50 per cent off from Monday to Wednesday throughout September.
One course is priced £10, while two courses are £14.50. Mains include sirloin steak with rosemary saleted fries, chargrilled chicken breast with truffle mashed potato, pan fried sea bass and prosecco hollandaise or mushroom and truffle risotto.
