The Pitt 'Charity Lock Down Chow Down' will offer home delivery of BBQ platters to Edinburgh residents on Sunday 24th May - raising funds for the musicians and Edinburgh Food for Good Coalition.

This week will also see the launch of drink deliveries for the first time, so customers can enjoy a selection of wines from Smith & Gertrude, ciders and beers from borders based Tempest Brewery and Leith local Campervan Brewery.

Cocktail lovers can even enjoy a premixed Bloody Mary alongside their BBQ platters.

As well as this a live stream of musical performances will be available to recreate The Pitt at home - to go alongside the delivery service.

What's on the menu


Vegetarian, vegan and meat platters are available but they sell out quickly so anyone wanting to enjoy The Pitt at home this weekend is advised to act fast.

The BBQ meat box prices start from £40.00 for two people and contains BBQ beef brisket, pulled pork shoulder, baby back ribs, smoked sausages, potato salad, slaw, corn salad, fresh cornbread mix ready for the oven, BBQ sauce and gremolata.

The veggie food box for one contains miso aubergine, bang bang buffalo cauliflower, BBQ pulled shroom, grilled pineapple, BBQ corn, potato salad, slaw and a fresh cornbread mix ready for the oven for £12.50.

Last food orders are at 6pm on Thursday the 21st with food being delivered all day Sunday 24th May. Orders can be placed here.

Live music at home

The live stream will be available on The Pitt Facebook page from 12 - 7pm, with performances from some of the best musical artists they usually host every week.

They have also set up a dedicated Go Fund Me page for Edinburgh Food for Good Coalition & The Pitt Musicians, with the money being split equally.

The lineup will include local favourites such as Baron Salmon, Paul Dennington of Wolfnote, Iona Zajac of Avocet and Leyla Josephine for top tunes.

Hal Prescott and Gloria Black of The Pitt said: "Local grassroots music artists and songwriters have lost all of their income overnight and receive little to no support from the government and no means to get an audience so we hope to bring them the Pitt community to enjoy great food and great music.

"We have also been supporting the Edinburgh Food for Good Coalition, who have been using the Pitt space as their distribution HQ to deliver thousands of healthy and tasty meals a week to those across Edinburgh who need them during these difficult times.

"We're delighted to be offering the Lock Down Chow Down and also working hard on opening as soon as possible in the safest possible way so keep an eye out."
