There are around 2,600 hospitality and tourism-related businesses in Buckinghamshire, employing approximately 22,000 people. As is the case nationally, many of these businesses have been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Cllr Steve Bowles Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Town Centre Regeneration says: “Many of our independent Buckinghamshire businesses are using the scheme to bring customers back after months of enforced closure.  We know that many of our local eateries are seeing a fantastic take up with people enjoying  money off meals and even coffees and eat in snacks. There’s a double feel good factor here – you can use the scheme as many times as you like and in as many participating places as you like, and each time you can get up to £10 off per person and, of course,  with every visit,you are also doing your bit to protect precious local jobs in Bucks.”

Many participating restaurants offer healthy and low-calorie options, so you can enjoy the discount as part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.  Local businesses have made the necessary preparations to become Covid-secure protecting their customers and staff. They are each using combinations of protective screens, contactless payments, social distancing, one way walking systems, online bookings and reducing the capacity for each seating.
