Eat Out To Help Out: the motorway services taking part

The major motorway services operators are taking part in the government's ‘eat out to help out’ scheme, with 50 percent discounts available to visitors.

Eat Out to Help Out

Motorway services operators Moto, Roadchef and Welcome Break are all taking part in the government’s August 2020 Eat Out To Help Out scheme.

This means that you can enjoy a 50 percent discount when dining at selected motorway service areas.

The August Bank Holiday is officially the final day of the initiative.

Eat Out To Help Out is designed to give a boost to the UK hospitality industry, which has been struggling since lockdown measures were introduced in March. It is hoped that the initiative will encourage customers to eat out, now that restrictions are easing.

Discounts are available from Monday to Wednesday throughout August, with a maximum £10 available per person.

Motorists 'demand action' against extortionate motorway fuel prices

Meals at all catering outlets without Roadchef’s main buildings will be eligible for the discount. Outlets include McDonald’s, Costa, Leon, Fresh Food Cafe, Cornish Bakery, Chozen Noddle and Restbite. The discounts are not available at Drive Thru outlets and restaurants located outside the main buildings.

The ‘eat out to help out’ discount is also at motorway services operated by Moto. This means you can get £10 off the price of food at Eat & Drink Co, KFC, Burger King, Costa, Arlo’s, Bar & Grill and Chow.

Similarly, Welcome Break is taking part in the scheme. A 50 percent discount is available at Burger King, Starbucks, The Good Breakfast, Chopsti, Harry Ramsden, KFC, Pret and Pizza Express.

In all cases, the discount is only available when you eat in. The scheme is not valid on takeaway orders.

Motorists who enjoy fine dining will be pleased to discover that Tebay and Gloucester Services are also taking part in the scheme. Discounts are available in the ‘Kitchen’ on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August.

Announcing the scheme, the Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said: “Our restaurants, cafes and bars play a vital role in our economy, employing more than a million people. They have been hit hard by coronavirus, so it’s vital we do everything we can to help them recover.

“Our Eat Out To Help Out scheme is deigned to get more customers through the door – protecting jobs by giving businesses the confidence to retain and hire staff.”
