The Eat Out to Help Out scheme looks like a win, win. Here at His & Hers, we love a bargain. This is an opportunity to give back to all those wonderful local restaurants, where you’ve had such good times. In turn they offer you 50% off mains, up to £10 reduction (just check the details for each restaurant). This applies Monday to Wednesday only, and only on days that restaurants normally open. We have chosen restaurants that we have reviewed and can recommend. This is just a sample of the restaurants participating. More to follow!
