Eating Out On A Budget

Look no further than this collection of eateries for some serious summer bargains. If you're only interested in breakfast, if lunch is your everything, or if dinner is your go to then we've got you covered.

We’re all feeling the pinch at the moment, but we still like to occasionally treat ourselves to a meal out. There is a hospitality group that understands the cost of living crisis and as a result they have devised some great budget ways to eat out.

Whitbread, the company that owns Premier Inn, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre and Bar + Block has put some belting deals together for eating out on a budget.

Half Price Burgers at Brewers Fayre & Beefeater

These deals include breakfast at Premier Inn and Beefeater where two children eat for free when one adult pays full price. Two mains for the price of one at Brewers Fayre between 12pm – 6pm, or half price burgers after 6pm until 31st August. Beefeater has a set lunch menu 2-courses for £8.95 Monday to Friday, and kids eat from 99p for one-course or £4.99 for 3-courses. Again, burgers are all half price after 6pm until 31st August at Beefeater. Contemporary steakhouse Bar + Block also has a set lunch menu Monday – Friday at £12.95 for two-courses or £14.95 for three-courses.

Eating out on a Budget, Breakfast at Beefeater

Our writer, Rachel McAlley recently took her daughter to the Millfield Beefeater in York (attached to Premier Inn) to see how good the breakfast is.

Firstly, there is a choice of breakfast at Premier Inn and Beefeater Restaurants. Guest can pay either £7.50 for unlimited continental or £9.50* for unlimited cooked breakfasts. Both have a great selection of self-service options. The continental breakfast offers toast, croissants, pain au chocolate, pancakes, crumpets, cereals, fruit salads, fresh fruit, yoghurts and juices. The cooked breakfast included sausages, bacon, black pudding, hash browns, baked beans, fried and scrambled eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes. Furthermore, if you prefer poached eggs or porridge you just have to ask.

Secondly, there is a drinks machine where guests help themselves to a selection of tea and coffee, this is included with both the continental and cooked breakfasts. Equally, guests can help themselves to juice and toast with either breakfast.

Therefore, as two children’s breakfasts are free with one paying adult, the Premier Inn and Beefeater breakfast is well worth £7.50 or £9.50*. So, if you’re eating out on a budget and fancy a hearty breakfast we’d definitely suggest visiting a Premier Inn or Beefeater.

*The Premier Inn breakfast price may vary (at some restaurants it is priced at £10.50)
