Covid shut the world. We've been doing our best to stay open, keep cooking and serve up some delicious normality, but now we need your help.

 New stretch target

With our initial target, we will be able to stay open and make sure all of our staff stay safe, are well looked after and keep their jobs for the foreseeable future.

With any extra funds, we will be able to expand our menu permanently (something we were testing out right before lockdown hit the nation). 

Furthermore, we will ensure we remain a staple of Edinburgh's historic and vibrant Old Town hospitality scene, as well as be able to lab test loads of our sauces, so that we may bottle up even more of your favourite Wings Edinburgh flavours.

We are Wings Edinburgh. For the last 7 years, we've been serving up some good food, good times and good chat on Old Fishmarket Close.

Like a lot of independent businesses, 2020 has hit us hard. The constant changing of lockdown rules and shifts in regulations means we're getting dangerously close to having to close our doors for good and let our incredibly hard working staff go. It's a situation we never thought we'd see ourselves in. We've exhausted every avenue, it's time for one last big push - We need your help. 

If you haven't already, please watch the above video, share it with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, all the Googles and, if you can, make a donation to our cause. We're offering some great rewards in return for your hard earned cash, and truly, every penny will be more than highly appreciated. 

Thank you for your time, thank you for your help. We hope our lights are on for you in 2021, so that when all of this pandemic chat is over, we can get together and catch up over some hot wings and cold beers. 

Peace out.

Team Wings.
