Boparan Restaurant Group is to remove the £10 cap from the Government’s Eat Out To Help Out discount scheme at the majority of its restaurant brands to offer customers 50% off all food and soft drinks irrespective of how much the bill comes to.

Its national casual dining brands Carluccio’s, Giraffe, Ed’s Diner and Slim Chickens are all taking part in the promotion, which mirrors the timings of the Government's running from Monday to Wednesday throughout August.

FishWorks sole remaining site in Marylebone is also taking part in the promotion and - in common with Carluccio’s and Giraffe - will also be taking £10 off the price of all bottles of wine.

The Cinnamon Collection - which was purchased by Ranjit Singh Boparan in 2016​ - is not running the offer but has signed up to the Eat Out To Help Out scheme offering the usual 50% off food and soft drinks up to a value of £10. 

Restaurants and other establishments serving food for on premises consumption are being encouraged to sign up to the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out initiative.

The scheme, which was announced in the Chancellor’s summer statement earlier this month, is aimed at protecting jobs in the hospitality industry and encouraging people to safely return to dining out.

Restaurants, bars, cafes and other establishments who use the scheme will offer a 50% reduction, up to a maximum of £10 per person, to all diners who eat and/or drink-in throughout August.

It can be used by diners who order food and/or drinks for consumption on the premises. Alcohol is excluded from the offer.

The Eat Out to Help Out registration page is now live with the scheme open to eligible establishments across the UK and can be used all day, every Monday to Wednesday, between 3 and 31 August 2020.

Customers do not need a voucher as participating establishments will just remove the discount from their bill. Businesses simply reclaim the discounted amount through an online service, supported by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Claims can be made on a weekly basis and will be paid into bank accounts within five working days.

Businesses will receive a window sticker to show they are using the scheme and can also download promotional items.

A searchable restaurant finder tool will be available to the public before the scheme launches on 3 August.
