Take away food service suspended. Beer available still at £2 per pint

Thanks to all of you that came and enjoyed our take-away food over the weekend.  The feedback was great and much appreciated.  We even had customers wanting to pre-order lunches every Sunday for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately, and we’re really sorry about this, we will be suspending take-away food for the time being.

On Friday the government announced the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.  Although details are still a little scarce, it is clear that the scheme is the safest course of action for the health and security of our staff and the long-term future of the pub.  It will enable us to receive government grants to give our staff significant financial support and make sure they are ready to return to the business when the current crisis is over.  While on this scheme staff cannot work, not even part-time, which is why we have to suspend the take-away food.

We are exploring options which may allow us to restart the  take-away food service and and will keep you updated.  We know many of you have been looking forward very much to enjoying meals from the pub in the coming months.

In the meantime we are continuing take-away beer sales, as this can be done by volunteers.  Thanks to Kevin and Charles we aim to be open 6-7 Monday and Wednesday to Saturday.  All beers, lager and ciders are £2/pint, contactless payment only.  We do have take-way containers but please bring your own if you can.

Thanks again for your support.
