We will be shutting the pub to the general public from when the government says and running a reduced hours delivery service from 3 - 11 pm each day which will be available on UBER EATS. We need this side of the business to cover our bills and staff costs - if you can afford it please support the work we are doing by ordering here. We have a takeout license so will be supplying beer and organic wine alongside our pizzas, burgers and desserts. We have also set up a Virtual Pub Shop at our website where you can make a donation or buy a pint for the future!
In the meantime, the best way to stay up to date with what we are doing will be through our Facebook page.
Most importantly, the pub will continue as a Community Hub, which is where our heart is. We will be providing these services for free.
Here is what we will be doing :
Community Hot Meals & Necessities Free meals delivered to the door of those who are self-isolated in the two housing estates bordering the pub. If we have capacity we will increase this area. The veg comes freshly picked by Gaskell Garden Project!
Newsletter To be delivered with the hot meals to keep residents up to date with info, contact numbers, news and it will also have a crossword and puzzle!
Online Community Radio Station & Live Streams Chats, Music, Live Dj sets and music from local people plus Advise from our chef Juri on how to protect yourself. You can listen here or get involved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Phone for a Chat Phone chats for people in isolation and wanting a catch up or check in.
Our awesome friends, Gaskell Garden Project will be sourcing the food and cooking up one pots to deliver to residents.
