Whitbread thanks frontline heroes with third off dining out

Whitbread, the UK’s largest hospitality company, is offering an increased discount for Blue Light Card members of up to a whopping 33% off their food bill this September – the biggest restaurant discount currently available through the scheme.

The offer is exclusive to Blue Light members who dine in any of its restaurants UK-wide including household names such as Beefeater and Brewers Fayre, on presentation of their membership card.

The increase in discount, which is also open to Defence Privilege Card holders, will be for the whole of September, giving card holders plenty of opportunity to tuck into the deal.

Whitbread restaurants is launching the offer as a small means of saying thank you for all of the amazing work undertaken by all parts of the emergency and public services during this difficult time.

To launch the offer a team of local paramedics were invited along to test out their recently opened local restaurant.

Paramedic Mark Giddens said: “All of our team and everyone involved in the national effort to reduce the spread of Coronavirus has worked especially hard over the last few months, and offers like these mean that we can make more of our precious free time and enjoy quality time together with our family and friends.”

Phil Birbeck, Managing Director of Whitbread Restaurants said: “Those working in the NHS and all the public services dedicate their lives to helping others, and since the start of the pandemic it has made us all appreciate their work more now than ever before. Now our restaurants are open again we want to show our thanks by extending our existing offer so Blue Light card members can now tuck into an even heartier discount at all of our branded restaurants up and down the country.”

To redeem the offer card holders simply need to show their Blue Light Card or Defence Privilege Card membership to the server when ordering and present it when the bill is requested. Only one card per party is required though a minimum purchase of two main meals from the main restaurant menu must be made.

The Blue Light Card is available to those working in the NHS, Emergency Services, social care sector and Armed Forces, and entitles the holder of a BLC or DPS to 33% off their food bill at Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Cookhouse + Pub, Table Table, Whitbread Inns & Bar + Block only.
