Whether you missed out on August’s Eat Out to Help Out 50% discount or simply didn’t have enough days to try all the restaurants taking part, there’s still time to take advantage of a cut-price meal thanks to several restaurants extending the scheme for September. Here’s a list of our favourites.
EAT OUT TO HELP OUT – SEPTEMBER EXTENSION
Award-winning Heliot Steak House is offering guests 50% off food and soft drinks (up to £10 pp) every Sunday-Wednesday until 30th September. Voted Best Steak Restaurant by Londoners, diners who Eat Out to Help Out will be able to enjoy 200g of fillet or sirloin steak for just £15 (usually £25).

Nothing quite beats classic fish and chips – and The Mayfair Chippy is one of London’s best places to get it. The ‘Mayfair Classic’ of fried cod or haddock, chips, mushy peas, tartar and chip shop curry sauce or HP gravy comes in at just over £8 with the EOTHO discount – and there’s even a jackfruit and tofu option for vegans.

La Poule au Pot has been a Belgravia institution for as long as anyone cares to remember: its alluring interior, with its intimate nooks and festoons of dried flowers and bric-à-brac, offers an authentic re-creation of “paysan” France. Alongside the atmospheric ambience, the menu is classic French too: excellent ingredients, generous portions and fine cooking, presented with exuberant panache. This September, diners can enjoy 50% off up to £10 per person Mon-Weds.
Relaxed and stylish bistro and cocktail bar NAC is also offering diners up to £10 off its French sharing plates and exquisite desserts during September.
