Thanks to the introduction of the Government's new Eat Out To Help Out scheme, there's arguably never been a better time to grab a bite to eat as participating restaurants slash your food bill in half!
Running until 31 August 2020, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the scheme - set up to help boost restaurants hit hard by the pandemic - allows diners to get a 50 per cent discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner).
You take advantage of the scheme as many times as you like, there's no vouchers, and no minimum spend either - so you can use it for a decent coffee and slice of cake, no problem!
There are just a few simple restrictions - you can't claim a discount on alcoholic drinks or service charges, and you have to eat in.
Those who've signed up for the scheme in Birmingham include everyone from small local cafes, to award-winning fine dining establishments, to trendy pub/ restaurants, serving everything from baguettes to great curries, super stir-fries and 'haute cuisine'.
