Coronavirus: Some restaurants extend Eat Out to September
The government scheme offers customers 50% off their meal, up to a maximum of £10 during August.
But chains such as Pizza Pilgrims now say they will offer the discount next month too.
The aim is to draw people nervous about coronavirus back to restaurants at a time when many are struggling.
Some 84,000 restaurants, cafes and bars have signed up to the government’s scheme, which runs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.
According to the latest Treasury figures, diners used it more than 64 million times in its first three weeks – equivalent to nearly every person in the country dining out.
