Eat Out to Help Out in Hammersmith: how to claim your discount
In an effort to give the hospitality industry a much-needed boost, the UK government has created the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme — which we’ll refer to as the ‘Eat Out’ scheme from here onwards.
The scheme is simple: from 3rd-31st August, diners at participating restaurants will receive 50% off their bill, to a maximum value of £10 per person. Alcohol and service charge are not included within the scheme.
So, for example, if you were dining with one other person, and the total bill came to £20 (excluding alcohol and service charge), it would be reduced to £10 — meaning that you’d pay £5 each if you were to split the bill.
If the total bill had come to £40, it would be reduced to £20, which would mean that you have both exercised your maximum discount of £10 each. If the total bill had come to £50, it would be reduced to £30.
How does it work?
Simply make a booking at a restaurant that is participating in this scheme on any Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday between 3rd-31st August. You don’t need a voucher for this scheme and you can use it as many times as you like. You can also use it alongside any other discounts or offers available to you.
Once you have finished your deal, the discount will automatically be applied to your bill. Participating establishments — including us — will then claim a reimbursement from the government.
Dining groups of any size are eligible for this scheme.
How do I know which restaurants are participating?
Restaurants themselves will make it clear that they are participating, either on their website or communications channels. You can also ring them to double-check.
The UK government website also has a complete list of restaurants participating in the scheme.
Kindred is participating in the Eat Out scheme, and we would love to have you. We developed a new menu concept while we were shut during lockdown called ‘London Fusion’, which celebrates the diversity of flavours, cultures, and ingredients that make up our city. Learn more about London Fusion in this interview with our Head Chef, Romulo Silva.
To try out our London Fusion menu with the discount scheme applied, simply make a booking at Kindred on any Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday this month.
How do I know that the restaurants will be taking measures against Covid-19?
This is not covered by the Eat Out scheme, however, the government has issued clear guidelines on social distancing. The most recent guidance is available on the UK government website, and was last updated on July 31st, 2020.
Restaurant owners and staff take safety and cleanliness extremely seriously, and during Covid-19 have likely taken their own measures alongside government guidance to make sure that their customers are safe. All of this information should be easily accessible on their website and communications channels, and if it’s not, you can contact that restaurant directly and ask them to explain which measures they are taking to prevent infection spread.
At Kindred, we have outlined the measures we are taking to keep our staff, members, and customers safe on our website. This includes:
- Temperature-checking our staff at the start of their shift and sending them home if they have a raised temperature
- Regular and thorough cleaning and disinfecting furniture, surfaces and door handles throughout the day
- Service staff wearing masks, with gloves that will be changed every 30 minutes
- Capped amount of people allowed into each floor to ensure appropriate distance
We are going through this pandemic alongside you and are taking every possible precaution to make Kindred as safe as it can be.
If you have any questions or concerns about coming into Kindred, including more information about the measures we’re taking against Covid-19, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch here
