More and more of your favourite Bristol restaurants, pubs and cafes are now reopening safely. With extra precautions in place, they’re ready to welcome you back and many are making the most of the government’s new Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

For diners, this initiative means discounts on great food all while helping local businesses get back on their feet. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3 to 31 August, you’ll be able to save up to 50% on your bill (capped at £10 per person, per meal). If you’re ready for a day off from homemade dinners, check out this small selection of places in the centre of Bristol that are taking part in the scheme, from romantic date night spots to cafes for that much needed catch up with friends. 


Yakinori on Park Street is part of a family-run chain that’s famed for its exciting Japanese food. Dig into their much-loved poké bowls, traditional noodle dishes, sushi, bento boxes, fusion dishes and lots more. Open from 11am-9pm every day, plan a visit to the colourful and vibrant restaurant on Park Street for lunch or dinner.

Steak of the Art

We’ve not only missed delicious food (cooked by someone else!) from restaurants, but the atmosphere too. Perfect for date night, Steak of the Art is renowned for its unique artistic atmosphere, with dinner served among an ever-changing gallery of original art. Savour quality West Country steaks, burgers, seafood and more in their eclectic setting, with all ingredients responsibly sourced. Pay them a visit anytime between 12-9pm Monday to Wednesday to claim your discount.

Dhamaka is an Indian street food restaurant, with dishes that originate from all different corners of the country. As well as introducing more in-depth cleaning procedures since reopening, the team has been working hard on extra treats to tempt you back for a curry night, including the ‘Sunak Thali’. Introduced in honour of the Chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, visit them on Clare Street on Monday and Wednesday from 5-10:45pm to enjoy a feast of dishes and flavours for only £10, after a 50% discount.

The Stable

There’s nothing more refreshing than a cider on the Harbourside on a summer’s day and at The Stable you can pair your pint with a freshly made pizza. Organic sourdough bases come with toppings ranging from the classic margherita to more adventurous combinations like sriracha chicken and honey roasted onions. If you can’t decide on a cider to complement your pizza, we recommend their tasting board - it’s a flight of five ⅓ pints selected by the restaurant’s cider masters. Book a table for you and your fellow cider lovers between 12-9pm.
