Grosvenor Estates, which owns properties across Central London, has announced that it would reduce rents for tenants that continue to be a part of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, until the end of September.
Participating lessees will offer customers a 50% discount on their meal (up to £10 per person), from Monday to Wednesday. Grosvenor hopes this initiative will help the economy of Central London to bounce back, as it is recovering much slower than in other parts of the UK.
“Eat Out to Help Out was a huge boost to the economy and gave people confidence in socializing again. But Central London is not yet back on its feet. We’re doing all we can to bring people back to the West End to enjoy its world-class retail, beautiful architecture, and fantastic restaurants,” said Amelia Bright, Executive Director of the London Estate, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland.
The incredibly popular Eat Out to Help Out program included around 85,000 restaurants, cafes, and bars, and 60% of all customers admitted they wouldn’t have eaten out if there hadn’t been for the discount. According to the official statistics, over 64 million diners helped their local venues by paying a visit.
