It is important that the tastecard scheme works for everyone involved; both the end-user members and the participating restaurants. As such, we encourage our members to drink ‘paid for drinks’ with their meal, and not just to order tap water. This encouragement reflects the idea that the scheme work for everyone – our members and our restaurants – and therefore everyone wins. If eating out becomes more affordable then people will do so more often – increasing footfall for the restaurants – and if the restaurants sell drinks to our members as well as the discounted food, then they are still able to make a profit on our diners.
