Some of you may have heard Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s announcement about a very exciting scheme on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August.

Restaurants that sign up are afforded the opportunity to offer their customers 50% off food and soft drinks when dining in at their fave local brands. Wow!

Since news has spread, we have had many hundreds of you contact us to ask if we are taking part, and we are pleased to announce that we are!

However, given the nature of our small, quick-serve restaurants, and current social-distancing guidelines, it immediately became apparent that we would be limited in the tables that would be available to C&B patrons.

And so, we have decided to extend the 50% off offer to takeaways too – which enables C&B fans to take advantage of the offer, and enjoy ‘dining out’ at home, or at one of the many local gardens, parks, and beaches!

Joshua Simons, C&B: “Since the start of lockdown, we have been humbled by the support we have received from locals across Bournemouth and Poole. It has enabled us to survive this rather worrying time, and all things considered, we would like to show our gratitude by offering the 50% off Monday-Wednesday in August for both dine-in and takeaway. With our limited table capacities, we simply didn’t want the vast majority of C&B fans to miss out. We ask everyone to read the directive on how to order for both dine-in and takeaway to qualify for the discount, so that their experience in the restaurants is as smooth as possible. From all of us at C&B, thank you!”


If you would like to take advantage of the Eat Out To Help Out scheme, please read the below:


On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August, C&B Bournemouth (Winton) and C&B Poole (Ashley Cross) will be offering limited tables for dine in guests, available for walk-ins only, with no pre-bookings being taken. 

Tables are for a maximum of 6 diners. We will be operating quick-serve 45 minute sittings from midday ‘til 9pm each day. On entry, the C&B team will be on hand to show you to your table (if available) and you will be given your table number and menus.

The menu will have a QR code that you will scan with your phone – this will take you to our ‘order at table’ website. Here, you will input your table number, your order, and the code RISHI at checkout for 50% off food and soft drinks, up to £10 per person, before paying for your order online.

When your food is ready, a member of the C&B team will bring your food to your table, with your cutlery. As you will have already paid by ordering online, the end of your visit will be nice and smooth, with no hanging around to pay your bill!

Please note: If you are planning to dine-in, but on arrival are made aware that there are long waits for tables, you may be asked to order a takeaway instead. You can still take advantage of the 50% off offer. 


We respectfully ask all C&B patrons to order a collection through the C&B website in order to qualify for the 50% off offer. This will allow C&B’s teams to monitor capacities during busy periods and ensure a smooth experience for customers. Simply visit the website collections page HERE. Select your location and collection time, and then place your order. Use the code RISHI on checkout and 50% will be removed from your bill (food and soft drinks).

Please note: Collections can be ordered from midday-9.30pm, Monday to Wednesday, throughout August. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offers.

Thanks everyone!
