A kids menu and gluten free options are also available.

The eatery is located just a short walk from Fisherrow Harbour and Musselburgh beach, meaning it is an ideal foodie venue for families to enjoy award-winning Scottish fish and seafood in the fresh sea air.

East Coast is the next chapter for the Crolla family, who have been serving Musselburgh from its venue on North High Street since 1974.

Styles may change, but great flavours, family heritage and warm, friendly service remain as important to Katia and Carlo today as they did 47 years ago.

Carlo Crolla from East Coast, said: “After two months in lockdown, we can’t wait to get our takeaway back open in time for Mother’s Day and continue to serve our loyal customers in Musselburgh and around the Lothians.

“We know that people have been missing our multi award-winning fish chips, so Mother’s Day feels the right time for our family to help bring other families together to celebrate with homemade food they love and trust.”

Due to social distancing and other operating restrictions, East Coast’s ‘Click & Collect’ takeaway will offer a reduced menu but continue to serve the local community every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4pm to 8pm until further notice. Initially, the service will be ‘Click & Collect’ only with limited spaces for each time slot.

To pre-order your Mother’s Day supper, visit the ‘Click & Collect’ section of the East Coast website or download the new East Coast App. Walk in orders are not available.
