MORE than a dozen businesses in Clydebank and the surrounding area have signed up to the UK government's Eat Out to Help Out initiative.

The UK-wide scheme is aimed at encouraging people to eat out again, supporting 100,000 businesses nationwide and helping protect 1.8 million employee jobs across the country.

The scheme will run every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between August 3 and 31, and will see diners get 50 per cent off food and non-alcoholic drinks up to a total value of £10 per person if eating in a participating restaurant.

You don’t need a voucher to use the scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts.

There is no minimum spend. Alcoholic drinks and service charges are excluded from the offer.
