Business has been tough for our local watering holes, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. But from April 26, they’ll finally be allowed to reopen again, serving customers in beer gardens.
Like many hospitality businesses, pubs have had a tough year, so they need all the support they can get.
We asked readers on our Facebook page their favourite establishments in the Falkirk area that they will be visiting as soon as possible. Here’s what they said.
1. Victoria Inn
This Carronshire pub was voted best "by a country mile" by many of our readers. It was praised for its great atmosphere and staff, as well as the "best Guinness outside the Emerald Isle and a cracking selection of Malt Whiskies".
2. The Woodside Inn
"It's my favourite pub of all!" was one glowing review of this pub in High Station Road.
3. The Graeme
This hotel with a bar and restaurant in Grahams Road was nominated by our readers.
4. Mariner Bar
Patrons and staff at this "great friendly" pub in Glasgow Road, Camelon, recently raised more than £700 for Edinburgh Breast Cancer Unit.
