In some cases, restaurants are offering Eat Out to Help Out on top of already lower prices because of a VAT cut.

VAT was slashed from 20 per cent to just 5 per cent for businesses in the tourism and hospitality industries – but not all places will pass on those savings to customers.

But if your chosen restaurant does choose to slash prices in line with VAT you could get some tasty savings.

For example, you can get a quarter of Peri Peri chicken from Nando's for £1.85 in August thanks to a combination of lower VAT and Eat Out to Help Out.

Meanwhile, Costa Coffee is serving hot drinks from 32p if you're using a reusable cup.
