Tipi dining in NI among unique Eat Out to Help Out settings

On top of mountains, on board a Royal Yacht and even sat amongst llamas – these are just some of the wild and wonderful places where you can enjoy the UK Government’s Eat Out to Help Out Scheme.

More than 85,000 outlets are now signed up and there’s still time to use the scheme – before it ends on August 31 – to get as much as 50% off your bill on food or non-alcoholic drinks when you eat or drink in.

The scheme has already seen claims for more than 35 million meals and continues at participating outlets on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until the end of the month.

As the scheme draws to a close, HMRC has published a list of unique places to eat-in which features the oldest coffee shop in the country, a cat cafe and Britain’s highest pub.

Included is Fodder Farm Shop and Café, in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, which offers seating inside a tipi and is situated amongst the trees of Finnebrogue Woods.

To find out if a restaurant is participating in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, you can use the online restaurant finder on GOV.UK. Simply enter your postcode, or one near to where you want to eat out, to get a list of participating outlets within a five-mile radius.

“Britain is breathing life back into hospitality by eating out to help out – with at least 35 million meals served up in the first two weeks alone, that is equivalent to more than half of the UK taking part,” said Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak2.

“I encourage everyone to continue to safely enjoy this scheme – it is vital people continue to support the 1.8 million people who work in the sector.”

There is still time for businesses to register and information about the scheme is available online at GOV.UK.
