More than 700 restaurants have signed up to an Eat Out promotion with The Times and Sunday Times newspapers.
An Eat Out card will be provided as a complimentary benefit to subscribers of the two newspapers, but will be sold for £50 to other users.
Member restaurants - which have the choice to offer members two main meals for the price of one, 50% off the food bill or 25% of the total bill - will benefit from marketing across the two publications, websites and iPad editions.
Eateries that have already signed up include Prezzo and Loch Fyne on the high street, as well as the Grill at the Dorchester hotel in London, JSW in Petersfield, Hampshire and La Garrigue in Edinburgh.
Jo Coughlin, head of partnerships at The Times and Sunday Times, said: "Eat Out is our biggest and best dining offer yet and will give restaurants exclusive access to a growing number of premium customers throughout the year as well as the chance to partner with two world-renowned brands.
Restaurants can join the scheme by contacting Iain on firstname.lastname@example.org.
