The Eat Out to Help Out scheme ended on Monday but the offer has been so successful that some Gedling borough pubs and restaurants are continuing to offer a discount at their own cost.
Under the government initiative diners were able to claim 50 per cent off the cost of food and non-alcoholic drinks eaten-in at participating businesses.
Some 84,000 restaurants, cafes and bars signed up to the scheme, which applied all day Monday to Wednesday from August 3 until Monday (31). The discount was capped at a maximum of £10 per head.
And although the scheme has ended, its popularity has triggered a number of our local pubs and restaurants to offer similar discounts at their own cost.
Here’s what’s on offer…

The Castle Rock venue in Gedling village is offering 25% off food between Monday and Thursday. The pub serves food at between 3pm-9pm on Monday and Tuesday, and 12pm-9pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You need to book a table to eat in the venue.
