These discounts only apply on days when the Eat Out to Help Out deal is on – plus you'll need to be eating in to take advantage of the scheme.

We've also highlighted where additional offers can be used on top of Eat Out to Help Out to make your bill even lower.

Wetherspoon has confirmed all its food items and soft drinks are included, but not alcoholic beverages.

Prices will vary slightly depending on your location, although you'll still get 50 per cent off the original cost up to a maximum of £10 per person.

How to calculate your Eat Out to Help Out bill

THE government will pay for half of your bill, up to £10 a head, when you eat out on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.

To work out how much your bill will be after the discount is applied, you should start by adding together everything that you ordered.

You'll then need to take off any items that it doesn't cover, such as alcoholic drinks and the service charge.

Then, divide this by two to find out half of the bill.

What if it comes to more than £10 per head

To check that it comes under the £10 per head cap, divide it again by the number of people who are dining.

If it works out as more than this per person, then you'll need to multiply the number of people eating by £10.

You should then minus the answer from the total cost of the items that the discount can be applied to.

For example, four people eat out and the total bill that the discount can be applied to comes to £90.

Half of the bill would be £45, but that's more than the limit.

So you need to minus £40 (£10 per diner) from £90 to get the amount you will need to pay, which in this case is £50. 

The government has just launched a new postcode checker so you can see all the businesses that will be offering the scheme.

Eat Out to Help Out sees diners get half price meals and non-alcoholic drinks, up to £10 a head, in restaurants, cafes and pubs throughout August.

It launches today and will run until August 31, with the discount applying on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

We've rounded up how much prices will drop by if restaurants use the scheme.

Businesses don’t have to sign up to the scheme, but Wetherspoon has confirmed it’ll be participating.

The pub chain has already lowered the price of some food and drink after Rishi Sunak announced he was slashing VAT for businesses in the hospitality industry.

The Chancellor has reduced VAT from 20 per cent to 5 per cent.

The cut doesn't apply to booze, but Wetherspoon has reduced the price of some ales as a result.

Thanks to the reduction, a pint of Ruddles bitter will cost £1.29, down 50p from £1.79.

Again, restaurants and pubs don't have to pass on any VAT saving to customers.

Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin, said: “Thanks to the government scheme, an individual is £2.93 better off eating and drinking at Wetherspoon than purchasing a similar range of products at Tesco.

“Over a 13 day period customers would save £38.09.

“The vast majority of our pubs will be offering a range of meals (with a drink) at unbeatable prices."
