Devon’s Top Attractions – ‘Eat out on your Day out’
The Government ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ Scheme runs from Monday 3rd to Monday 31st August inclusive when you can eat in at cafés, restaurants, bars and pubs that are registered and get a 50% discount of up to a maximum £10 discount per diner every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday throughout August.
The further good news is that a number of Devon’s Top Attractions have also signed up to participate in the scheme and who all have quality cafés and restaurants onsite at the attractions, and offer some superb locations to enjoy a discounted breakfast, lunch or snack. They hope that visitors will be encouraged to ‘Eat Out on their Day Out’ and take full advantage of the discount on offer.
Many of Devon’s top visitor attractions have now re-opened their doors and have the necessary social distancing and Covid-19 safety procedures all in place and with online pre-booking now always nearly essential.
With social distancing, the attractions are having to limit the number of people through their doors, which is great for the visitor who finds a quieter than normal visitor experience but not so great for the attractions who are now in high season and only have August to get in some much needed revenue after being forced to close for nearly four months with lockdown.
The hope is that visitors will be take full advantage of the scheme when visiting a participating attraction on every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during August. There is no need for a voucher to use the scheme and no minimum spend. The discount will be automatically available at any participating registered establishments.
The Chairman of Devon’s Top Attractions, Dick Wood, said: “Tourism as a whole has been hit very badly by Covid-19 and our member attractions now only have limited time to try and pull in some revenue to try and save the season, and so need all the help and support they can get. The participating attractions hope that visitors will use the discounts offered by the Government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ Scheme and this, in turn, will help the attractions with some much-needed secondary spend. We need the support of the general public to not only visit the attractions but also to ‘Eat out on their Day Out.”
