These are the best bars and restaurants offering Pokémon Go deals
29 July 2016

If you're anything like us, you'll have already lost 20 stone walking around aimlessly trying to find Gyarados whilst playing Pokémon Go.

Which is why we thought we'd help you out by showcasing places you can grab a cheap bite to eat and drink without having to pause your quest. These are the best bars and restaurants around the UK offering exclusive discounts and deals for Pokémon trainers. Oh, and a zoo too. Of course. 

M Victoria Street, London

Every Friday in August this bar and grill is offering a free cocktail if you show the bar staff your starter Pokémon. If you chose Charmander, expect the flaming concoction pictured above. 

As if that wasn't enough, anyone who manages to catch a Pokémon in or outside the M Wine Store will receive a £25 voucher for the M Restaurant. Brb.

Treacle Bar and Kitchen, Edinburgh

Every Tuesday and Thursday until the 16th August, the Scottish bar and restaurant are dropping two straight hours of lure modules from 3pm to 5pm. 

If that doesn't determine where you go for dinner, we don't know what will.

Check out the event here

The Blackbird, Brunstfield

Treacle's sister bar is also getting in on the act, with the same promotion taking place there until the 16th August.

Never leave.

Cosmo, Nottingham

So this promotion relies on you finding a Pokémon in the restaurant and snapping a quick selfie, but a bottomless drink is definitely a worthy reward.

Gossip, Stoke-on-Trent

This Friday sees the first of many Pokémon Go themed parties at the club, where lure modules will be active all night.

The venue is offering a free drink for every Pokémon caught with a CP of 200+, and they're raising money for Action for Children, a local children's charity, at the same time. You just can't argue with that.
