Diners have been eating their way around East Lothian’s restaurants and cafes – and reaping the rewards!
This year’s Eat East Lothian promotion (backed by the East Lothian News and Musselburgh News) has seen a 29 per cent increase in people taking part.
Diners who spent £20 or more in participating businesses between February 10 and March 23 received an entry card for a prize draw to win a share of £1,600 worth of Eat East Lothian dining vouchers.
The draw was carried out by Councillor John McMillan, Cabinet Spokesperson for Economic Development and Tourism.
The winners had received cards from the following participating restaurants: Mercat Bar & Grill; Castle Inn; The Avenue Restaurant; Archerfield Walled Garden; Waterside Bistro; The Royal Mackintosh; The Volunteer Arms; Nether Abbey; The Creel; The Longniddry Inn; La Potiniere; The Golf Tavern; Scottish Seabird Centre; Duck’s; East Links Cafe and The Linton.
Councillor McMillan said: “I’m delighted that this promotion has been more popular than ever this year. There appears to have been a good mix of local people frequenting their favourite places or maybe discovering a new favourite and people from outwith East Lothian sampling the delights of our excellent local cuisine. It’s been a great success all round and I hope the lucky winners enjoy spending their vouchers.”
