A new website shows you exactly which restaurants in Bristol are taking part in 'Eat Out to Help Out', a scheme set up by the government to kickstart a recovery period for the hospitality sector.
Running from Monday 3 August to Monday 31 August, the scheme offers customers 50% off food and non-alcoholic drinks at participating restaurants every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, up to the value of £10 per person.
More than 32,000 restaurants across the UK have signed up to take part, including some of Bristol's best-loved independents.

You can enjoy 50% off everything from coffee and cake to pizza, pie, pitta and much more in Bristol throughout August, with some of the city's favourite restaurants registered on the 'Eat Out to Help Out' scheme.
'Eat Out to Help Out' was announced earlier in July as part of the government's Plans for Jobs initiative, which has also seen VAT rates cut for the hospitality and tourism sectors.
Speaking on the announcement of the scheme, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said: "The best jobs programme we can do is to restart these sectors, and get our pubs, restaurants, cafes and B&Bs bustling again.
"I know people are cautious about going out, but we wouldn't have listed the restrictions if we didn't think we could do so safely.
"I've seen how in the last few weeks hard business are working to make their premises safe, and if we follow the guidance and respect what they ask us to do, we can all enjoy summer safely."
