Links to help you survive the November lockdown


A meal delivery from @chefrishimsachdeva - DM him on Instagram for details

Here we go again.  Here are some links to help you survive the winter lockdown, and to help support the independent chefs and restaurants.

Bars Open for Takeaway Beer (& often food too)

My map of the bars open for takeaway draught beer in sealed containers ('growlers').  Several are also doing food, and with many you need to book in advance.  Find your nearest, click on the links, and work out what the deal is.  Then go and support your local, and buy some great beer.
