National lockdown from 5 November

The government have announced that a second national Coronavirus lockdown, where you are asked to stay home as much as possible, will be in force from 5 November until at least 2 December.

Non essential retail and leisure will be closed down for the duration, which of course means pubs and bars will be closed for eating and drinking on the premises.

As a food and drink retailer, pubs will be allowed to do takeaway sales and home delivery (the same as supermarkets etc.) like in the first lockdown, however this time there is a requirement that all sales must be ordered ahead either online or by phone.

If your local pubs aren’t offering take home beer sales, it however doesn’t mean you are limited to what the supermarket chains have to offer – don’t forget you can get an interesting selection of quality beers including some from local breweries from the various independent specialist beer shops around our area or alternatively many brewers offer home delivery on bottles, cans, bag-in-box and mini-kegs!

Scroll down for the list of pubs and bars we are aware of still open for take home orders or use the link below for breweries offering home delivery.
