Motion text

That this House congratulates the Bridge Inn at Ratho on being awarded the best pub grub honour at this year’s Edinburgh Restaurant Awards; understands that the award is testament to the hard work of the staff at the Bridge Inn for their efforts in providing excellent food, a welcoming atmosphere and outstanding service to their customers; recognises the social and economic importance of having strong pubs such as the Bridge Inn at the heart of communities across the country; notes that pubs provide vital job opportunities and offer a focal point where families and friends can come together; calls on the UK Government not to increase beer duty in the 2019 Budget and to support pubs; and hopes that the Bridge Inn has another excellent year as it defends its title in the 2020 Restaurant Awards.
