50% off or 2 for 1 at 1,098 restaurants across London alone.
tastecard is the UK & Ireland’s largest diners club, with over 6,200 restaurants offering over 2,500,000 members huge savings every time they dine out. Each member receives a personalised membership card which they show at the restaurants to receive the discount.
UKSUA and tastecard have teamed up with your Students’ Union to secure a student price for the tastecard+ Membership. Now every student can enjoy the benefits of tastecard+ without having to fork out a small fortune.
There are only 2 offers for the restaurants to choose from:
50% off the total food bill: This applies to everyone dining in the group, although the restaurant may place a maximum number of people per booking (see website for each individual offer).
2 for 1: This is an offer for couples and applies to all courses ordered (starters, mains and desserts). The cheaper item from each course is deducted from the bill.
Yes. All Student taste cards come with the tastecard+ add on.
tastecard+ offers hundreds of exclusive member only discount offers, competitions and giveaways to help you save money on even more than just dining out! We have everything from discounted hotels; theatre offers; special dining discounts at Michelin Star and AA Rosette restaurants, to reduced price days out, discounted cinema tickets or competitions giving you chance to win fantastic holidays!
It depends where you go and how many people are in the group, but average savings are around £25-£30 each time the card is used. (Starters, mains and desserts).
Lone diners are able to dine at 50% restaurants and receive the tastecard discount; however the 2 for 1 offer does require 2 people for the discount to be applied.
Only one tastecard can be used per booking unless stated otherwise on the individual restaurants page.
The tastecard discount is not applied on any sharing dishes, and side dishes are only included in the 50% off the total food bill offer.
Please email [email protected] and they will be in touch with you immediately.
The tastecard discount is only applied to the à la carte menu. If a restaurant offers a set menu this would not qualify for the tastecard discount.
The tastecard discount only applies to the food bill and not service charge as the service you receive is the same as it would be for a full paying customer. Therefore any service charge would be applied prior to any discount being deducted.
Unfortunately the tastecard discount does not apply to takeaways. Members must dine in the restaurant to receive the discount.
No! Your tastecard can be used against any item on the restaurant’s à la carte menu, so you’re never restricted for choice!
Please note the offer cannot typically be used in conjunction with any special set menu or other offer.
As taste is a closed community, the restaurants are able to offer a large discount without publicising that offer to the general public. As our members pay for membership they are the type of customers that the restaurants like to get through their doors.
The whole ethos of tastecard is to make eating out more affordable, thus encouraging people to eat out more regularly. By doing this, we are helping both our members and our partner restaurants; and as such are highly valued by both.
Yes! Thousands of our restaurants offer the tastecard discount 7 days a week. Some restaurants do have individual restrictions including weekend days or celebration days, so please check the individual restaurant details on our website prior to booking.
Note: All restaurants are able to exclude Friday and/or Saturday nights, all of December and Bank Holidays if they so choose. Other reasonable exclusions may sometimes apply, for example some chain restaurants may exclude Friday and Saturday day times. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Valentine’s Day are automatically excluded from the offer. Full details can be found on each individual restaurant page.
If the restaurant has a telephone icon illustrated on its page then advance bookings must be made, and tastecard must be mentioned. This is because if the discount has not been mentioned and the bill is produced, the manager would then have to recalculate the bill; which can be time consuming. If the restaurant is already aware that you are a tastecard member, they can calculate the bill including the discount from the outset.
Participating restaurants do require members to make an advanced booking at least 2 hours prior to dining where the call icon is displayed on their individual page.
The restaurant is under no obligation to offer a discount if a booking mentioning tastecard is not made in advance.
