You probably have heard of or even used OpenTable and SquareMeal, which are famous online restaurant booking platforms. One of their competitors just came into my attention recently, and they are running a very good promotion which covers London and other UK cities.
TheFork, backed by TripAdvisor, is a restaurant reservation platform that was founded in Australia but now supports dozens of countries in Europe and Americas. It works in a very similar way to OpenTable.
They are now running an event called TheFork Festival that ends on November 27th. Participating restaurants may offer up to 50% off your food bill!
Some of the names in London are:
- Hard Rock Cafe Oxford Street
- Clermont Charing Cross
- Harrods Social
- Podium Restaurant at London Hilton Park Lane
- Sushi Salsa (Japanese)
- Happy Lamb Bayswater (Chinese)
- Sticky Mango (Malaysian)
Some popular venues may have very limited 50%-off slots and offer 20%-off or 30%-off instead, but more availability could turn up closing in. I made a 50%-off reservation myself and the saving was impressive!
TheFork also runs a loyalty program where you collect yums by making reservations and they can be redeemed against your future bills at select restaurants. If you use my referral code 83720151 on your first booking you’ll earn 1,000 yums which is worth £20.
