Dining Out gift cards FAQ
GIFT CARD EXPIRY DURING COVID CLOSURES
If your gift card has expired whilst our venues were temporarily closed, please be reassured that your balance has not been lost.
We have extended the expiry of all gift cards which were due to expire between 20/03/2020 and 24/09/2021 up to 25/09/2021.
So, if your original expiry date fell between 20th March 2020 and 24th September 2021 you will now have until 25th September 2021 to spend and enjoy your balance.
