An Indian restaurant in Preston has decided to bring back the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ offer ahead of the second national lockdown.


The Silk Route, in Strand Road, Ashton-on-Ribble, will run the 50 per cent offer from Monday (2 November) to Wednesday (4 November).

Under the new restrictions, which begin on Thursday (5 November), all restaurants and hospitality outlets must close.

They can however continue with delivery services after Thursday.

A statement from the restaurant’s owners said: “In light of this announcement we have decided to run the Eat Out to Help Out offer this Monday to Wednesday.

“Stay positive everyone. Keep calm and curry on.”

The Silk Route is ranked as the ninth best restaurant in the city according to Tripadvisor and is the number one Indian restaurant for its ratings.
