COVID-19 Crisis


For details of pubs operating special services during the COVID-19 crisis please visit WhatPub. This has be temporarily modified to have an additional search option on the homepage: “only show pubs offering takeaway or other additional services during closure period ”. This will be selected by default when people search for a pub in a location, so only those pubs, clubs and breweries which continue to offer services during the COVID-19 closure period will be displayed. If you still wish to see other pubs simply untick it. If you wish to see Off-Licences as well untick “Pubs & Clubs Only” in the filters section.

The following breweries in the branch area have announced various alternative arrangements during the COVID-19 crisis. Details on WhatPub for each brewery can be found by following the links.

In addition, we know of the following breweries outside the branch area who will deliver direct in certain areas:
  • Bear Claw in Berwick upon Tweed are doing home deliveries in Berwick. Place your order over the phone, pay by BACS and they leave the beer on the doorstep after in transit sanitising.
  • Tryst in Larbert will make home deliveries to Edinburgh.
  • WEST in Glasgow - Free delivery to Edinburgh postcodes on orders over £30.

Please help us with this by letting us know about outlets in your area that are still operating in some sense, including takeaways, deliveries and the like (both food and drink).
