Forest of Dean independent venues taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme

From the Dean Heritage Centre to Perrygrove Railway, family days out in the Forest of Dean just got better with so many independent cafés, pubs and restaurants taking part in the new Eat Out to Help Out scheme in August 2020.

Participating restaurants, pubs and cafés in the Forest of Dean will be offering the chance for diners to save 50 per cent on food and non-alcoholic drinks, thanks to the government’s new Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

Between Mondays and Wednesdays, from Monday 3 August 2020 to Monday 31 August 2020, plenty of venues across the Forest of Dean will be offering the discount – with savings of up to £10 per person.

As an independent business ourselves, we are passionate about supporting the Forest of Dean’s independent restaurants, cafés and pubs – with SoGlos’s journalists handpicking some of our favourite independents taking part in the scheme in the city, so far.

We have also rounded-up the independent eateries taking part in Eat Out to Help Out in Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury and the Cotswolds too…
