Tullie House Museum has joined the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme which starts in August.

The Cafe at Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery is fully signed up and ready to participate in the government’s new Eat Out to Help Out scheme. The scheme is an initiative designed to encourage people to support local food and beverage outlets as they re-establish a customer base after the extended period of closure.

Customers using The Cafe at Tullie House on a Tuesday or Wednesday between 3 and 31 August, will be entitled to a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks. There is no minimum spend, although there is a maximum £10 discount per diner. Discounts do not apply to takeaway refreshments but will be applied for customers using the seating in the garden. The scheme does not require vouchers, as each establishment will claim a reimbursement from the government for the discount, they have given each customer.

Peter Johnston, Director of John Watt & Son who run The Cafe at Tullie House says: “This fantastic scheme from the Chancellor gives our customers a 50% discount and through our commitment to ‘Shop Local’ it will also give a boost to our suppliers.” 

Since reopening, The Cafe at Tullie House has seen a steady stream of visitors using its spacious facilities. However, it is hoped that August will see customers return in greater numbers to take advantage of the mutually beneficial deal and enjoy the large, open space of the Museum Cafe.

As a charity Tullie House relies heavily on admissions income and on the generosity of funders, donors, patrons and members.  Since mid-March income has been severely impacted.  To find out how to support Tullie House visit the website at: https://www.tulliehouse.co.uk/support-us
