Restaurant expenses

I have completely confused myself on what expenses are tax deductable when a director has restaurant expenses.

Here are the 3 scenarios - I have for a director with a limited company;

1) The director travels away a lot abroad so he stays in hotels and has a meal there - I think this is the most straight-forward and I can class this as travel expenses?

2) The director entertains potential clients - is this classed as entertaining or is it tax deductable as he is trying to find new business for the company?

3) The director goes out with a colleague while abroad on work and pays the full bill - is this classed as entertaining or tax deductable as he is away?

I would really appreciate a bit of guidance as I have now completely confused myself!

Thanks!
