Eat out to help out in Swanage and Corfe Castle

From today, to boost restaurants, cafes and pubs that have lost business due to the coronavirus pandemic, the government is offering to pay 50 percent of the bill up to a maximum of £10 per diner.

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme is available at participating establishments every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between Monday 3rd and Monday 31st August 2020.


La Trattoria in the High Street in Swanage

Do not need a voucher to use this scheme

Diners do not need a voucher to use this scheme and they can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend, but a discount cannot be claimed on alcoholic drinks or service charges.

The discount will be automatically applied to a diner’s bill and then the establishments will claim the money back from the government.
