The Eat Out to Help Out scheme is already into its second week and off to a flying start in Manchester.
Under Eat Out To Help Out scheme, which was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak as part of the UK government’s #PlanForJobs, visitors will receive a 50% discount, up to a maximum of £10 per person, when dining-in at participating venues on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout 3rd – 31st August.
This unmissable offer – which can be used on more than one occasion and will see participating establishments simply remove the discount from customers’ bills – is available on food and non-alcoholic beverages, but does not include takeaway purchases.
The scheme is designed to encourage people to dine-in and support their favourite local hangouts.
Plenty of Manchester’s independent eateries have signed on to take part in the scheme, but if you’re looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat in the city centre without having to leave your pup at home, then the team at dog food company tails.com have compiled a list of 12 dog-friendly restaurants taking part in Eat Out to Help Out this month.

Often talked about as serving some of the best coffee in Manchester, North Tea Power is super dog-friendly.
Dogs are welcomed inside with open arms, plus they don’t even mind if the little ones curl up on the bench next to you. Even better, they’ve also got a covered outside area on the rows where you can sit if you have an extra large furry friend or the tables inside are taken.
