American Express "Shop Small" and Government "Eat Out..." discount

I've just been reminded by American Express that their "Shop Small" discount is available until 13 September. This gives you £5 back on your card when you spend £10 or more in listed small shops. It seems it can be combined with the government's "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme...
So, if I go to my local pub, which is participating in both schemes, and order a £10 pizza, does it cost me:
[a] nothing, because I get the government's 50% off and then AmEx's £5; or
[b] £2.50 because I get AmEx's £5 off, then the government's 50% is applied to the remaining £5 bill; or
[c] £5, because I get the government's 50% off but as I haven't then spent £10 I don't get AmEx's £5 off?
What do you reckon?
