The coronavirus pandemic has put immense pressure on NHS workers. As a way to say thank you, many restaurants and cafes are offering special deals and freebies to those working on the frontline against Covid-19.

Note: Lots of businesses that were offering NHS staff discounts — such as Pret and Itsu — have now shut their doors. This is a list of places that are still open as of Thursday 26 March.

While other major chain cafes have closed their doors, Leon remains open in the hope it can provide NHS staff and essential services somewhere to grab a bite to eat and drink. All meals for NHS staff are at 50% off. Also noteworthy is that some of their restaurants have now been transformed into mini supermarkets.

Even in these trying times always remember that #HealthIsWealth. So for all those NHS staff sticking rigidly to their plant-based diets throughout the lockdown, they'll be glad to hear that By Chloe will give them a 50% discount.

There's nothing like a cold beer waiting in the fridge to greet you at the end of another taxing day. But you don't want to have even the slightest hint of a hangover tomorrow (especially when your job is so vital), so decide to opt for an alcohol free option. That's where Big Drop Brew Co come in: not only for NHS staff, but also those in all the emergency services, and health and social care professionals. They're offering 30% off on delivery for all the aforementioned groups.

Ladies and Gentlemen

NHS workers might want a meal or a beer after a long shift. But what about when they need to really celebrate? Like kicking-off a two day break. Or maybe it's your birthday. Something like that calls for cocktails! Luckily Ladies and Gentlemen — the bars that live in old converted loos — are giving NHS workers two free cocktails per order. And when you need to kick back into work gear, fear not, because there's more than booze on offer — they also do Aryuvedic juices too.

The Athenian

Fancy some souvlaki or gyro to power you through the day? Look no further than The Athenian, as the Greek street food specialists are doing delivery. Mmmm... we can smell the halloumi from here. 50% off for NHS staff.

Coal Office

The most exciting restaurant in Coal Drops Yard has transformed into a Fresh Food Hub, selling produce from nearby farms, bread baked daily, and Liberty Wines. It's open noon-7pm daily and doing a 50% discount for all NHS staff.
