While customers may not be able to catch up for a glass of wine or a pint indoors over the next couple of weeks there are plenty of venues that can offer up outdoor options.
For those wanting a pint at their local or looking to have a glass of wine with a meal, the only way to do so from Friday at 6pm is to book yourself a place to go al fresco.
With new restrictions coming into play this weekend, venues across the area have once again reinvented their outdoor spaces to be able to retain custom to keep their businesses afloat.
The Scottish Government has put restrictions in place which will see hospitality venues close at 6pm indoors and 10pm outside. No alcohol can be purchased or consumed inside, and can only be ordered to be enjoyed outside.
To help you figure out where you can go to enjoy an alcoholic drink or two, we’ve rounded up the outdoor hospitality venues now open and offering al fresco dining and drinks outside in the area.
Check out some of the places you can now grab a pint and a cocktail – just remember to bring a blanket with you and wrap up warm!
Please note, all venues listed had announced their outdoor spaces were open at time of writing.
