Organisers of the Royal Highland Show (23-26 June), the country's biggest celebration of the best in farming, food and rural life, have released details of the new bars and licensed restaurants showgoers can look forward to at the four day event, held at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston.
The changes to the licensed premises are in line with recent upgrades to the award-winning event, including last year's launch of Scotland's Larder Live, and new for this year is the 13th Avenue Arcade, an upmarket shopping area with an eclectic range of lifestyle products for him, her and home.
Designed to provide showgoers with more variety, the licensed premises located around the 110 acre showground will give visitors plenty of places to relax in between the endless activities and attractions on offer at the Show.
The Stetson, the Show's first country music themed bar and licensed food outlet, will sit behind the Lowland Hall. Managed by Gilchrist's, the people who run the popular Merry Monk bar on 4th Avenue, and, with a capacity of 1000, there will be plenty of room for line dancing when the live country music starts up.
For those with a taste for real ale, craft beer and cider, Eden Brewery will be returning to host the Real Ale bar in the Lifestyle Village, the German Bar, run by Gilchrists, will be back on 4th Avenue (opposite the Forestry Arena) and there will be an always popular Cider Bar in the Countryside Area.
