Things to do on National Eat With a Friend Day:

Friends dining out at a restaurant

Go for a meal with friends at one of our 1000s of partner restaurants.

Whether you're indulging in a saucy Italian at Prezzo, wolfing down a spice-infused Indian at one of our indies, or tucking into some tastebud-tingling tapas, there's nothing quite like grabbing some good grub with your best buds. When you dine out with tastecard, you can enjoy 2 for 1 meals, 50% off food, or 25% off the total bill, meaning you and your pals can devour cuisines from all around the globe for less, and they'll only be pleasant surprises when the bill comes.

Christmas time is one of the busiest periods in most people's social calendars, and the price of dining out with friends and family soon starts to tot up. But with a tastecard's dining discounts in your pocket, you can tuck into 2 for 1 meals or 50% off food at 1000s of restaurants across the UK and save yourself an average of £19 every time you dine out – that's another Christmas present accounted for! 

It's worth noting that some restaurants do have restrictions throughout December, so it's always best to give them a quick call and check they're still running the promotions. 

Family at the cinema eating snacks

Get discounts at over 350 UK cinemas.

Looking to plan a mate date but not feeling a big, slap-up meal? Well, we've got a trick up our sleeves. Get up to cinema discounts and watch the latest releases on the silver screen, and use the cash you've saved to fill your boots with popcorn, pick 'n' mix, chocolate, Ice Blasts, and any other confectionary you're fond of. Eat whatever you like on National Eat With a Friend Day; we don't judge.
