MORE than 50 restaurants in the Clacton area have signed up to take part in the 'Eat out to Help Out' scheme.

The government's 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.

Scroll down for the full list of restaurants.

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.

You don’t need a voucher to use the scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts.
