Save up to £10 per person, when eating out at Gloucester’s independent restaurants, cafés and pubs.

Participating restaurants, pubs and cafés in Gloucester 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 Gloucester will be offering the discount – with savings of up to £10 per person.

As an independent business ourselves, we are passionate about supporting Gloucester’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, Stroud, Tewkesbury, the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean too…
