As a rule, Scots do not drink at home other than on special occasions and so Scottish pubs are the mainstay of social life, as they have been for many centuries. At lunch time and between 5 and 7pm most pubs now become eating places. They then stow away the menus and crockery to welcome a more social evening crowd. Opening hours in Scottish pubs were extended some years ago, now usually from 11 am to midnight and this helped change the image from hard drinking to a more genial environment.
