The Eat Out to Help Out government scheme has been used more than 35 million times in its first two weeks 

The initiative allows customers to eat out for half price throughout August.

But when does the 50 per cent off scheme end - and could the government or individual restaurants extend the deal into September?

Here’s what you need to know.

What is Eat Out to Help Out?

Announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in July, the scheme helps to boost the hospitality trade as coronavirus lockdown restrictions are relaxed.

Restaurants, pubs and cafes are offering 50 per cent off the bill, up to a maximum discount of £10 per head, throughout August.

The discount applies to food, soft drinks when customers dine in at venues on MondayTuesday and Wednesday - however this does not include alcohol.
