SCORES of restaurants in and around Bishop Auckland are offering customers 50 per cent off food and non-alcoholic drinks throughout August.

A mix of independent and chain businesses have signed up to the government's Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

They include businesses in Crook, Spennymoor and Shildon

It means customers will be treated to half price food and drink, up to a total value of £10 per person every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

It will run between August 3 and August 31 and won't require you to have a voucher - you'll be able to use other offers and discounts too.

Here's all the businesses that have signed up so far within 5 miles of Bishop Auckland town centre.
