The Edinburgh restaurants and bars offering serious dining discounts in January

By Sian Traynor

January is known to be a time when many of us try out new health kicks, odd resolutions, 'dry January' or even 'veganuary' to start the year off differently.

However, it seems that the first month of 2022 may actually be an ideal time to dine out.

With those initial few weeks of the year often a quieter time for the hospitality industry, many venues across the city have launched some incredible deals to entice hungry customers.

After a tough couple of years in the pandemic, it seems that Edinburgh locals have been excited to support their favourites through the bleak midwinter, with the offers proving popular and not denting their bank balance.
