A number of pubs near me have linked up with outside caterers to provide cooked meals. In tier three our pubs will remain closed but one pub has got a marquee which opens onto a road with lots of footfall and serves breakfast, hot drinks and takeaway meals to passers by. Another has a food wagon in the car park entrance selling hot food and drinks to cars or walkers. Yet another has a catering company providing based hot meals for takeaways, collected from the pub window.
It would be better for the publicans if we were in tier 2 where people can enjoy a sit down meal but they are doing their best to keep going.
But I have to say the mood here in Stockport is very low and many people are cross that our infection rate is lower than some tier 2 areas yet we are essentially still in lockdown after months of extra restrictions. We are lumped with Greater Manchester which does have some areas with very high infection rates so we just have to grit our teeth and hope that we can come out of tier 3 sometime in the future.
