More than 700 restaurants have already signed up to a new card scheme with The Times and The Sunday Times that will give pubs and restaurants access to thousands of customers throughout the year. The Eat Out card will be available initially as a benefit for Times and Sunday Times subscribers before being rolled out in early 2012. It will cost around £50 but will remain as a complimentary benefit to Times+ members. Operators including Prezzo, Loch Fyne and the Grill at the Dorchester in London have already signed up to take part on the deal. They have the choice to offer members two main meals for the price of one, 50% off the food bill or 25% off the total bill. “Eat Out is a new and innovative value offering from The Times and The Sunday Times,” said head of partnerships Jo Coughlin. “This is our biggest and best dining offer yet which will give restaurants exclusive access to a growing number of premium customers throughout the year as well as the chance to partner with two world-renowned brands. “As we value our loyal customers the most, we are offering this exciting new benefit as an ongoing addition to the subscription pack via Times+.” Restaurants can join the scheme by contacting eatoutcard@newsint.co.uk.
