Lockdown curfew rules: Can you get a takeaway after 10pm?

Venues selling food for consumption off the premises will be allowed to do so after the curfew – but only if the order is placed through a delivery service or a drive-through.

The Scottish Government has followed suit with the rules, putting extra police on the streets of Scotland to enforce the curfew.

In Wales, there’s a little more flexibility with restaurants able to serve customers until 20 minutes either side of the curfew.

Restaurants and pubs in Northern Ireland have a later curfew, having to shut at 11pm instead.

Northern Ireland’s First Minister Arlene Foster said: “The intention behind the earlier closing time is that socialising later in the evening is considered to increase the risk of virus spreading because people adhere to the rules less strictly after consuming alcohol and in venues where they are used to mixing freely.”
