A statement on social media reads: “Right, here’s the craic. We have a few friends that live alone and use the pub to get out of the house, so in order for them to continue to do so, we are going to stay open for the next 16 days and offer free tea/coffee (no other purchase necessary) and free wifi.

“So if you want to get out of the house and grab a cuppa at no expense pop along.

“Even take your laptop and let work pay you to be in the pub. Just please book your table online as normal.

“Current restrictions apply inside so we will not be serving alcohol inside and inside will close at 6pm each day.

“If you want a pint, outside will operate as normal until 10pm everyday serving alcohol -pints etc plus some new hot drinks like mulled cider, hot food and hot drinks.”

Those wishing to take advantage of the offer are encouraged to book through the bar’s website at www.malonesbaraberdeen.com

The statement concludes with a friendly reminder to those wishing to take advantage of the beer garden to wrap up warm.

“It’s October in Aberdeen so dress for the Alps.”

Under the latest restrictions introduced by the Scottish Government, hospitality premises have to close indoors at 6pm with alcohol only allowed to be served outside.

Hotel restaurants will be allowed to operate indoors beyond 6pm but only for residents and without alcohol.
