Eat Out to Help Out – Wrexham businesses can start making claims against discounts for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Businesses in Wrexham taking part in the UK government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme are now able to claim reimbursements for the discounts they have been giving to diners this week.

Outlets must wait seven days from the date of registration to make their first claim, and can only claim for scheme discounts offered on or after the date registered.

Claims can be made weekly and when signed into the service, businesses must select the periods that they are claiming for.

Many Wrexham eateries are taking part in the initiative, which offers customers a 50 per cent discount on food and non-alcoholic drinks on Monday – Wednesday until August 31st.

‘Eat Out to Help Out’, which was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak at his mini budget in July, is capped at a maximum discount of £10 per person. Meaning it could save a family of four up to £40 per meal at participating restaurants.

Across the UK more than 73,000 outlets have signed up for Eat Out to Help Out, and businesses can still register to use the scheme online at GOV.UK.

You can also find a list of restaurants here which you can filter by postcode.

Information on making a claim is available online:

Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak previously: “Our Eat Out to Help Out scheme’s number one aim is to help protect the jobs of 1.8 million chefs, waiters and restaurateurs by boosting demand and getting customers through the door.

“More than 72,000 establishments will be serving discounted meals across the country, with the government paying half the bill. The industry is a vital ingredient to our economy and it’s been hit hard by coronavirus, so enjoy summer safely by showing your favourite places your support – we’ll pay half.”

We’ve found a handy map which is bang up to date with all the businesses in the UK – and therefore locally – taking part in the scheme.
