There is nothing like beer garden season in Glasgow and with a much-awaited easing of lockdown restrictions we are all eager for pints in the sun.

Earlier this month, Nicola Sturgeon confirmed beer gardens will be able to reopen from April 26. 

Non-essential shops, libraries, museums and gyms will also return from that date. 

“Cafés, restaurants and bars will be able to serve people outdoors, in groups of up to six from three households, until 10pm,” the First Minister said.

“Alcohol will be permitted, and there will be no requirement for food to be served.”
