The official Eat Out ot Help Out scheme may have wrapped up, but many of Oxford’s generous restaurants are still drawing us in with some hearty discounts. In August, the government funded 50% off food and non-alcoholic drinks, up to a value of £10, on Mondays-Wednesdays. Now, restaurants are offering the same (or better) terms, funded by the venues themselves - you can show your appreciation by reserving a table in advance to help with social distancing arrangements (and tipping generously!)
