Monday was the first day of the Eat Out to Help Out - the UK government promotion that offers half price dining from Monday to Wednesday during August
John Quigley told Five Live's Emma Barnett his Red Onion restaurant in Glasgow was busy all day and at times the level of business was almost overwhelming.
The Treasury will be picking up a £900 tab for the day under the scheme which aims to help restaurants get back on their feet after lockdown.
It felt like the first day of the restaurant - like an opening day in many ways. Today is busy again, the back door is swinging open with delivery drivers. So we're back up and running for the moment.
