The Government's 'Eat Out to Help Out' scheme gives a 50% discount up to £10 per person on sit-down meals out from Monday to Wednesday throughout August. But have you used it and, if so, where?

    I would like to encourage others to donate their 'eat out to help out' savings to a foodbank.  I like the fact that there is help for the hospitality sector but feel that those of us who are lucky enough not to need the savings could give their savings to a food bankhttps://www.trusselltrust.org/2020/07/09/eat-out-to-help-out/

    Great idea arh!
    We enjoyed the feeling of freedom we had eating out again but were very pleased we booked an outdoor table.
    The waiters delivering food and drink were very close and chatting away. I do think they should wear masks for those actions as none of us knows if we are spreading the virus unawares. If we had been indoors it would make me really scared, and we are lucky to be in a lower-incidence area.

    I agree entirely Julie , i was in a Manchester wetherspoons the other day, every member of staff, had masks on at all times, which was really comforting,  yet, went to another wetherspoons,same city, same day and hardly any of the staff wore masks. Anybody handling food, should surely wear masks, even if they are not told to do so.
