Throughout the month of August, restaurants all over town are taking part in the government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme. For a definitive list of who’s taking part, you can pop your postcode in the gov.uk website.
In the meantime, we’ll be rounding up our favourites as we find them here:

Camino, one of London’s best-loved Spanish tapas bars and restaurants will continue its Eat Out to Help Out offer throughout September. Furthermore, it will now be available on Thursdays too – £10 off the a la carte menu (food only) for lunch and dinner, Monday to Thursday at Bankside, Shoreditch and King’s Cross.

Summer Dining at OXO
Available at Knightsbridge, Edinburgh and Leeds as well as the iconic OXO Tower (which is always a treat!), the much-loved Summer Dining menu has returned to Harvey Nichols. This time however, thanks to the government scheme, from Monday to Wednesday, you’ll be able to get your hands on three courses and a complimentary cocktail for as little as £15! The rest of the time it will cost £25, which considering it contains the likes of salmon tartar and guinea fowl – feels like a great deal to us. Over at the OXO, menus differ slightly, head to their website to find out more. You better get your skates on if you want to nab a table, this offer is only on until the end of September.
Dishoom Uncapped 50% Off
Although many restaurants are taking part in the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme, Dishoom is going one better and extending the offer beyond the £10 cap. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy a very generous 50% off all food and soft drinks Monday – Wednesday throughout August. How’s that for a welcome back? So that means a breakfast of spicy scrambled eggs and bottomless chai could be yours for a little over £5. Their iconic house black daal, roti and a couple of lamb chops will come in at under a tenner. And to make it even sweeter, bookings can now be made for groups of up to six people at any time of day so no queuing up outside. Your discount will be automatically applied to the bill – no need to do anything. Hurrah!
Hawksmoor Steak & Chips for £10
Hawksmoor has come up with a very tempting new menu to get us back through the door. What they’re calling ‘The Best Steak & Chips in Britain’ for just £10. And who are we to argue? They’ll be serving up 300g of 35-day dry-aged rump steak with a generous portion of chips and a sauce of your choice (which at this point would cost you £30 already) but they’ve reduced it to £20. So with Rishi’s offer, you’ll pay just £10. Furthermore, Hawksmoor is continuing with £5 corkage every Monday, so that means you can enjoy a bottle of wine from home & enjoy the Best Steak & Chips in Britain for £15?!
