Living through the apocalyptic COLC(Cost Of Living Crisis) we find ourselves in means eating out is getting harder and harder to justify. Luckily there’s an app for that.
No, you haven’t stepped back to 2013 internet culture; there are legitimately two nearly identical apps that want to save you money in exchange for maybe converting you into a regular customer.
In the vein of Lidl and Aldi EarlyTable and First Table do basically the same thing. They’ve been around a little while, but we were a bit suss at CHAR headquarters, but there are a few solid spots on their list, so if you’re into them, you should give it a go.
First Table and Early Table offer fifty per cent off your first booking with them for any of their, as the names suggest, early bookings.
Early Table Picks:
Dall’ Italia Pasta Bar,
The Guinea Pig,
First Table Picks:
The Port House Cava,
The Port House Pintxo
In a manner, if there are two of you, you could theoretically get fifty per cent off two dinners two weeks in a row if you book separately. And you could hypothetically double up on that with the other app. Making that four half-price dinners in total. Not that I am advocating for the morally dubious gaming of the app systems.
