Stephen McPartland said: “This scheme is a great way to boost local businesses and protect jobs across our hospitality sector which has been hard hit by coronavirus, while allowing families to keep more money in their pockets.

“I know from a number of cafes and restaurants locally how much this is helping them. It really is protecting jobs in our area and helping small businesses that are the backbone of our community.

“It is great value for the family too, so please do eat out healthily to help out.”

More than 72,000 establishments are participating in total, including independent eateries and family favourites such as Pizza Express, Costa Coffee and Nando’s.
