Following the launch of the government’s new Eat Out to Help Out scheme, foodies will be able to get a 50 per cent discount when dining-in at certain restaurants, pubs and cafés in Cheltenham from Monday 3 August 2020.

Diners can save up to £10 per head from Monday to Wednesday until Monday 31 August 2020 at participating eateries – with plenty of places to grab some half-price grub in Cheltenham.

As an independent business ourselves, we are passionate about supporting Cheltenham’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 will be updating the list as more venues announce their involvement…

We have also rounded-up the independent eateries taking part in Eat Out to Help Out in Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury, the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean taking part in Eat Out to Help Out too.
