A burger restaurant has been busier than before lockdown due to Eat Out To Help Out.

Raj Gill, bar manager at Harry’s in Chapelfield Gardens, said they had been fully booked on every day scheme.

And as a result, the restaurant, which opened 10 months ago, has introduced a buy one get one free cocktail offer on Thursdays and Fridays to maintain the “steady flow” of customers.

He said: “I think it’s a given that reservations will tail off a bit although we do have bookings, including tomorrow for example. It’s difficult to judge the impact it will have next month but, as far as we can tell, trade is set to be steady.

“Overall, the scheme has been really helpful and we have been busy on other days too, which has been really useful.”
