Eat Out to Help Out in September: London restaurants extending their deals this month

Some of us were straight out the starting blocks on July 4, making up for lost time by diligently hoovering up every much-missed dish on our post-lockdown restaurant wishlist.

Others have needed a bit of encouragement – but it’s amazing what a free tenner can do.

The government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme has largely been hailed as a success by UK restaurateurs, helping to pack out dining rooms across the country from Mondays to Wednesdays throughout August.

And now the deal – which offers 50 per cent off meals in participating restaurants, up to the value of £10 – has inspired some restaurants to continue offering similar discounts off their own backs.

While we’d encourage you to foot the full bill at London restaurants as much as possible (the idea is to “help out”, after all), we’ve listed the places offering EOTHO-style deals during September and, in some cases, beyond.

There are now more than 100 restaurants (that we know of) extending their offers into this month, so as well as showcasing as many as we can, we've also highlighted our top ten places offering what we think are some of the best deals out there.

From discounted weekend brunches to bottomless cheese for a little over £10, here’s where to continue eating out and helping out next month.

Kricket

For fans of acclaimed Indian restaurant group Kricket, 2020 is starting to look a little bit brighter. All three locations of its locations (Soho, Brixton and White City) will continue to offer 50 per cent off food and soft drinks on Mondays only, but will get rid of the £10 cap and make the offer available every week until the end of the year – that’s 50 per cent off your entire meal. Keralan fried chicken, butternut squash makhani and samphire pakoras all in for £14.75? Yes please.

Smokestak

David Carter’s barbecue restaurant had been offering a “4For10” deal during Eat Out to Help Out, feeding diners a set menu of four dishes for just £10. The restaurant will continue the offer from Monday to Wednesday in September, upping the price ever-so-slightly to £15 – still a cracking deal, particularly with its signature brisket bun included.

The Cheese Bar

During Eat Out to Help Out, the Camden restaurant not only offered a £10 discount, but it offered it on bottomless raclette every Wednesday night. The restaurants says it's already gone through more than half a tonne of Ogleshield cheese in August, and so will continue the weekly deal throughout September, charging just £12 per person. It’s sibling restaurant Pick & Cheese will also offer unlimited plates of British cheeses from its conveyor belt for just £20 per person, from Thursday to Sunday.

The Levantine restaurant in Shoreditch will not only continue to offer 50 per cent discounts up to £10 per person, but it’ll also do it on the most popular dining days of the week. During September, Barboun will offer half price food and soft drinks from Wednesday to Sunday, meaning diners can also tuck into the weekend brunch on the cheap.

The Tel Aviv-inspired restaurant in Southwark will continue to offer the government’s discount in September.

Pip Lacey’s Coal Drops Yard restaurant will offer the same discount with the same cap as it did during Eat Out to Help Out, but will be loosening up the days a little bit.

It’ll be available for booked tables only, and diners will need to quote “#eatoutout” in order to retrieve the discount.

To make a booking, you can now download the new Inception Group App from Bunga Bunga’s parent company – anyone who does will receive a free glass of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial Champagne at any of its venues.

Social Eating House

Jason Atherton’s Social Eating House wowed diners in August with the chance to enjoy a Michelin-starred meal for just £12.
