Over August, the whole country was eligible for discounted meals on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of every week as part of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
The deal was limited to a maximum of a 50% reduction with £10 available for each diner and the subsidy was covered by the government.
The scheme was implemented as a way for the hospitality industry to get back on its feet after being out of action during the nationwide lockdown.
It proved to be a huge hit with diners, and it allowed many restaurants and pubs to gain back at least some of the revenue they lost over the last few months.
Some restaurants and pubs are now continuing with the scheme, despite it’s official end, as a way to keep customers coming back.
Here are a few independent and chain restaurants and pubs in Huddersfield that are continuing the deal:
Tesco cafes are continuing to offer 50% off their September menus (Monday to Wednesday).
There will be no limits and it will now be available for take away and dine in.
The deal will be extended by two weeks by Stonehouse Pizza (Monday to Wednesday).
The pizza and carvery chain will lift the £10 price cap, but the discount will not count towards alcohol or takeaway.
Prices on a range of meals and drinks will continue to be reduced until November 11 (Monday to Wednesday).
The meals on offer will include an 11-inch Margherita pizza with a soft drink for £3.99 and a beef burger meal for £3.99. A traditional breakfast will cost £2.99 and a small breakfast will cost £2.49.
Coffee and tea will be available for 99p, and all soft drinks will cost 99p. Alcohol however, will not see any new offers.
They are continuing discounts for the first two weeks of September (Monday to Wednesday).
Owned by the same company as Toby Carvery, Harvester will also extend the discounts into the first two weeks of September (Monday to Wednesday).
They are offering 50% off, with terms and conditions applying, throughout the whole of September (Monday to Wednesday).
The Eat Out to Help Out deal will only be on Fridays for the Westgate venue, but they are considering adding another day to their offer.
There will be a £15 three-course set menu with a range of dishes to choose from.
A twist of the original scheme will be used by Deliveroo.
They will be offering 100,000 customers of small, independent restaurants £5 off a £20 order delivered from Monday to Wednesday every week in September.
Many smaller local businesses are also looking to offer some form of discount as restrictions continue to ease and more people return to work.
