The Government’s new ‘Eat Out to Help Out' scheme gets underway today to help give the hospitality industry a much needed boost.

The promotion gives diners a discount of up to 50% when eating or drinking soft drinks in a food establishment that is taking part in the scheme, up to a maximum discount of £10 per diner.

It will be valid all day on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from August 3 to August 31.

You don’t need a voucher and you can use the scheme at the same time as other offers and discounts, as many times as you like.

Here are the establishments in the Lechlade and Fairford area that are taking part in the scheme:

The New Inn Hotel, Lechlade

Vera's Kitchen, Lechlade

Lynwood & Co Cafe, Lechlade

The Riverside, Lechlade

The Trout Inn, Lechlade
