HUNDREDS of restaurants in Reading have signed up to take part in the 'Eat out to Help Out' government scheme.

The new initiative will see diners get up to 50 per cent off the cost of their dinner (sit-down meals and non-alcoholic drinks) on Mondays and Wednesdays in August.

It is hoped the new idea will boost the struggling hospitality industry, now that the national lockdown is easing.

The scheme will cover meals up to £10 per head and there is no minimum spend.
