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.

Used to work in the same building. Had a chicken and mushroom pie here, loads of raw pastry in the bottom. Not pleasant. Complained to the manager but just got fobbed off with extra broccoli. Like broccoli but not five plates of it. Ate most of it (4 plates) and took the rest back to the office for my m8s.

The coffee the Supreme Court gives lawyers is terrible. Honestly it was maybe the worst coffee I ever had. People started to bring their own after the second day of the hearing.

The bacon rolls were excellent though

Good bit of advertising for this place. Sad what’s happening to small businesses atm. Hope a lot of them recover.



Do you has to be lawyer to entry?



No but a basic grasp of English helps.



Why do be so mean?
