Mims Davies welcomes Eat out to Help Out Scheme in Mid-Sussex
The Eat Out to Help Out scheme has launched this week, giving families 50 per cent off their restaurant bills every Mon-Wed throughout August.
The scheme – part of the government’s Plan for Jobs that will spur the country’s economic recovery from coronavirus – applies to all food and non-alcoholic drinks, with a maximum discount per person of £10.
More than 72,000 establishments are participating in total, including independent eateries and family favourites such as Pizza Express, Costa Coffee and Nando's.
Some local favourites to mid-Sussex which are offering the scheme and keeping government guidelines on social distancing are:
Tamasha Spice Curry House in Lindfield
Talbot in Cuckfield - This is where I found myself on Tuesday evening, enjoying a lovely, healthy, seafood!
Orange Square in Haywards Heath

The scheme will help keep more money in hardworking families pockets and give the UK’s hospitality sector a vital boost. Around 80% of hospitality firms stopped trading in April, with 1.4 million workers furloughed, the highest of any sector.
My daughters are very excited to visit some of their local restaurants with Mummy! I think this is a great way to boost local business and protect jobs across our hospitality sector – which has been hard hit by coronavirus – helping families to keep more money in their pockets and have healthy dinners cocked for them!
