Eat Out to Help Out a huge success in Bexhill

Diners in Bexhill and Battle bought a staggering 144,000 discounted meals during August’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

They packed into the 154 participating restaurants in the area to take advantage of the Government plan.

This resulted in discounts of £776,000 being claimed – equating to an average of £5.38 off every meal sold.

Huw Merriman, MP for Bexhill and Battle, believes the scheme has been a resounding success for restaurants, cafes and pubs in the area.

He said: “I’m both delighted and proud that local residents ventured out in August to support their local businesses and made this constituency one of the highest take-ups of Eat Out to Help Out scheme nationwide by enjoying 144,000 discounted meals!”

The Government scheme encouraged people to start eating out again

Mr Merriman pointed out that the Chancellor’s scheme had succeeded in giving people the confidence to start eating out again – and to provide businesses with a much-needed boost.

“I hope that residents continue to enjoy eating out at the fantastic restaurants, cafes and pubs in our area,” he added.

The scheme offered a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during August – up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner.
