Glasgow restaurant Buck's Bar opens doors to punters in peaceful protest at lockdown rules
The popular West Regent Street burger and wings specialists saw at least 60 customers take up the offer of free food.
Mr Bergson said police did attend the venue but were content with his explanation that all the food was complimentary and that guests, who were two to a table, were either all from the same household or social distancing bubble.
"The police were here but they were content no laws were being broken when we explained we were not selling any food. They had no issue with us at all.”
He said: “We staged this peaceful protest in support of the hospitality industry which is being unfairly scapegoated, there's no science based evidence to show that hospitality settings, when operating with key safety measures in place, cause spread of virus.
"But we are also doing it in support of public mental health. Enjoyment of food, music and social interaction are key to maintaining good mental health in society.
"We had one lady in today who has not been out of her house since March.
"We just need the Government to listen, now. There are people’s livelihoods at risk here."
