Ok so for now we are staying in, with bars and pubs in Edinburgh closed for the time being. But we can do better than some supermarket cider. Many of our favourite bars and pubs are offering drinks to takeaway. We’ve pulled together a list so we can keep propping up our locals from the comfort of our couches.
Eating’s not cheating, especially when supporting local businesses. Check out our list of restaurants doing takeaway during the mini-lockdown.
