From 1st August Sopwell House will be taking part in two dining promotions to help support our customers and our industry peers.

Invisible Chips

Invisible chips is a Hospitality Action initiative set up to provide financial assistance to people in the hospitality industry facing poverty due to Covid-19 - focused on keeping a roof over their heads and food on the table for those who have been hit hardest.

We are encouraging customers to buy a portion of invisible chips when they dine with us at the cost of £3.50.  The money from every portion sold is then donated to Hospitality Action. To find out more click on https://invisiblechips.org.uk/

Eat out to help out

We are delighted to be taking part in the governments dining initiative, giving our customers a 50% discount, (up to a maximum of £10 per person) off food and non-alcoholic drinks purchased at the hotel.

Valid Monday – Wednesday throughout the month of August.  No vouchers are required, just pre-book and quote "Eat out to help out" and the correct value will be automatically presented at the end of your meal.
