Top court’s café joins government’s new discount scheme — but remains closed for now
From next Monday eating out is set to be a little bit kinder on the purse strings thanks to a new government scheme.
The Treasury policy, dubbed ‘Eat Out to Help Out’, sees diners save 50% off meals and non-alcoholic drinks (up to £10 per person), in restaurants, pubs and cafés throughout August.
The discount — which aims to encourage people to dine out more and, in turn, help reboot the economy — is redeemable from Monday to Wednesday.
But among the more recognisable establishments taking part in the scheme (Costa Coffee, Nando’s, Pizza Hut, Wagamama and Wetherspoons, to name just a few), is the Supreme Court’s very own café.
Yes, that’s right. Described as a “hidden gem” on the court’s website, the in-house café is among the many participating businesses on the government’s official list.
Unfortunately for those hoping to pop down and grab a slice of cake or hearty soup, the café remains closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A spokesperson for the top court did however confirm it’s planning to reopen and will let us know as soon as it is.
