Eat Out to Help Out in Mid Devon

Enjoy a meal out, save money and support a local business – triple win!

Fed up of the lock-down blues and wanting to get out and about, luxuriate in the summer sunshine and some delicious quality meals (without the cooking and washing up)?  Visit one of the many Mid Devon eateries taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme and enjoy 50% off your meal (up to £10 discount per person).

Operating on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August,  the scheme covers food and soft drinks consumed on the premises (sorry takeaways are not included).  You don’t need a voucher to use the scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend.

Mid Devon is blessed with plenty of walks across beautiful countryside between its towns and villages so you can make a day of it and stop off at different eateries along your route.  Even better: there is no limit to how many times you use the scheme, so you could enjoy breakfast in a café, a country pub lunch, cream tea at a garden centre and a restaurant evening meal all in one day!  Visit our walking and cycling page for inspiration on routes to try.

We recommend contacting businesses ahead to check opening times, availability and to book a table.
