Pubs and restaurants - what to pay?
The price of food and drink varies considerably depending on
the type of establishment you choose. As a general guideline, eating out in a
pub at lunchtime will cost from around £5-6, while it is usually that bit
more expensive in a restaurant. Dining in the evening obviously varies greatly
but one can expect to pay from £15-25 per person for a good meal. Check
out seasonal offers like Dine Around, which takes place in Edinburgh &
Glasgow, and allows you to enjoy 2 courses at great restaurants for
less than £15 per person.
Pubs are generally cheaper than hotel lounges when purchasing alcoholic drinks. A measure or "nip" of whisky costs minimum £1.50, while a pint of beer costs around £1 or more. One should note that Scottish draught beers are usually ordered by the pint or half-pint, while some of the recommended local brews include Belhaven, Tennants and McEwans.
