UK: In anticipation of the reopening of Scottish hospitality, the Stair Arms Hotel in the Midlothian countryside has undergone major DIY work.
The group, which had previously opened a temporary drive through, have now made it a permanent feature of the property.
The hotel initially teased the potential project, posting images of an old shipping container on various social media channels, before revealing the result. The drive through is now placed in an old shipping container that has been fully remodelled by the staff.
Amanda Ramsey, hotel owner and manager, said: “If lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that we are capable of adapting. We went from no experience of takeaway to having an amazing takeaway service operating six days a week. We’re not quite ready to let go of all that yet.”
The drive through provides food from the hotel’s restaurant and café, available for takeaway so people may eat at home. The business most recently introduced chip shop classics to their Friday menu.
The small hotel is situated directly between the Scottish capital of Edinburgh and the borders.
