Toby Carvery And Harvester Among Restaurants Extending Eat Out To Help Out Scheme
Toby Carvery and Harvester are among the restaurants that are going to continue to offer 50 percent off after the Eat Out to Help Out scheme ends.
Chains and independent restaurants will be carrying it on after the success of the government backed scheme.
It was supposed to end at the end of August, after throughout the month, discounts were offered on food and soft drinks for people dining-in on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
But between 1 and 9 September, the two pub food chains will continue to foot half the bill themselves, as they won't be able to claim back off the government.
If you're a fan, you can get an unlimited carvery meal for just £3.65, when it's normally £7.30.
With the meal, you get a choice of beef, turkey or gammon, as well as a range of hot veg, roasties (the most important element of the meal) and a Yorkshire pudding.
At Harvester, you can expect to get a steak and cheap for just £6.40 - down from £12.80. You can also bag a half a rotisserie chicken meal for just £5.25.
Mitchell & Butlers, the company that owns the chains, will also put the offer on in their Stonehouse Pizza restaurants.

Divisional director of the chains, David Gallacher, said: "The Eat Out to Help Out scheme was really helpful for the industry and the unwavering support we've encountered from our loyal guests has been incredible to see.
"They're clearly so pleased to get back to their favourite restaurants and enjoy a delicious meal out.
"Our teams have enjoyed having guests back and can't wait to see them again in September"
Around 84,000 restaurants had signed up to the scheme. Recent figures show that in the first three weeks of the scheme alone, 64 million discounted meals were served.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak said: "This scheme has reminded us how much we love to dine out, and in doing so, how this is helping to protect the jobs of nearly 2 million people who work in hospitality.
"I am urging everyone, where they can, to continue to safely enjoy a meal while the scheme remains open."
With the scheme set to end on Monday 31 August, many establishments believe that the discount is worth continuing, opting to fund it themselves to keep customers eating out.
