LONDON: The Government has suggested some attractive places on top of mountains, on board a Royal Yacht and even sat amongst llamas – these are just some of the wild and wonderful places where public can enjoy its “Eat Out to Help Out Scheme”.
More than 85,000 outlets are now signed up and there’s still time to use the scheme – before it ends on 31 August – to get as much as 50 per cent off your bill on food or non-alcoholic drinks when you eat or drink in.
The scheme has already seen claims for more than 35 million meals and continues at participating outlets on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until the end of the month.
We’ve pulled together a list of unique places to eat-in which features the oldest coffee shop in the country, a cat cafe and Britain’s highest pub. There are also plenty of options at holiday hotspots, including zipwires in North Wales, cable cars in the Peak District and the Cornish coast.
Here are some of the most remote, beautiful and wild places in the UK where you can claim a maximum discount of £10 per person, on food and non-alcoholic drinks across the UK:

Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said: “Britain is breathing life back into hospitality by eating out to help out – with at least 35 million meals served up in the first two weeks alone, that is equivalent to more than half of the UK taking part. “I encourage everyone to continue to safely enjoy this scheme – it is vital people continue to support the 1.8 million people who work in the sector.”
