Cheers! A Scotch Egg is a “substantial meal” in a pub says Food Minister

A Scotch Egg would “probably count” as a substantial meal in a pub, said a Cabinet Minister.

George Eustice gave the “ruling” as more than half the country head into a tier two lockdown.

Under the Government’s rules people can drink in pubs if they are eating a “substantial meal”.


When asked if a Scotch Egg would suffice Mr Eustice said:

“I think a scotch egg probably would count as a substantial meal if there was table service.

“Often that might be as a starter.”

Downing Street has already said pub diners had to leave once they’d finished their meal – no more ordering drinks.

A Scotch Egg is a soft or hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs, and deep-fried.
