It’s August, and that means the launch of ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ from Monday the 3rd. You’ve probably heard all about it, but here are the basics just in case:
- Customers will receive a 50% discount on food or non alcoholic beverages to eat or drink in at participating venues. This can be alfresco as long as still on the premises.
- There’s a maximum discount of £10 per person. Children are included and also entitled to £10 discount.
- It’s available every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this August, a total of 13 days as the bank holiday is included.
- No vouchers are required – the cost is recovered directly from the government by the business.
- There is no discount for service charge or alcohol, these are at the customers cost.
- It can be used with promotions (although not ones that include alcohol), and there is no minimum spend.
The scheme is designed to help the hospitality industry, which has been hard hit by COVID 19. As a food and travel lover (obsessive?), I want to do my bit to shout about businesses that are participating in my adopted home town of Clevedon. This isn’t an ad, none of the food in my pics below has been gifted – it’s purely for your information!
Listed first are those I’ve spoken with, who have confirmed they are participating.
Junior Poon Chinese Restaurant and Wine Bar

- Available in both restaurant and wine bar
- Alfresco dining available subject to weather
- Great for: Lunch and dinner
- My favourites: We love everything here, we used to get the bus over when we lived in Bedminster! But if I had to pick I’d say it’s the crispy duck and pancakes. The thought makes me salivate!

The Limehouse (Relaxed dining and cocktails)

- Worth noting that their cocktail offer runs 5pm to 7pm (two for £10, scheme not applicable to these as they’re alcoholic!)

Teatro Lounge (Cafe bar)
- Discount available Mon/Tues/Weds
- Food served 9am until 10pm
- No need to book
- Alfresco dining available upstairs and at the front
- My favourites: I’m quite partial to their panini and soup deal (which would only be £2.50 under this scheme!) but their tapas is great too, and lots of people seem to love the breakfasts!

Puro, Scoozi and the Moon and Sixpence have all sadly confirmed they aren’t participating. I’m still waiting to hear back from The Cellar.
If you spot know of anywhere else that should be included and I’ve missed them off, please do let me know. I took a year off writing, as a certain young lady has been nabbing my attention, so I’m just a little rusty…
Clevedon has so much to offer and I hope this is of some help if you’re planning to visit this summer. Thanks for reading,
