It’s crisis time for our pubs, clubs and breweries.
The Government have ordered pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes to close until further notice. If our local pubs and clubs are to survive they must seek other ways to carry on their business.
Some are now offering off-sales deals including their real ales. Some have gone further and are offering take-away deals from their food menu.
We would encourage everyone to use these take-away and/or delivery services safely along the lines that the Government have suggested. You can find details of your local pub on the CAMRA website whatpub.com.
Some pubs in our branch that are offering take-away services include –
- Hertford, Black Horse
- Hertford, White Horse
- St Albans, Beer Shop
- St Albans, Farmer’s Boy
- St Albans, Great Northern
- St Albans, Mermaid
- St Albans, Robin Hood
- St Albans, Ye Olde Fighting Cocks
- Wild Hill, Woodman (check before travelling)
We will try and keep this list as up-to date as possible as we hear of more pubs taking on the initiative. If you know of a pub that isn’t listed please let us know.
One other way to help pubs over what will be a temporary, but long, cash flow crisis is to pay a little now and support the pubs they love in return for pints or meals in the future. See crowdfunder.co.uk/pay-it-forward.
Our local breweries are also offering off-sales either on a collect basis or delivered to the customer’s door. See below for a list of links to brewery contact pages. Please contact the brewery to confirm arrangements before visiting.
- 3 Brewers of St Albans (deliveries only)
- Chiltern (delivering to St Albans on orders over £30)
- Farr Brew of Wheathampstead
- McMullen of Hertford
- Mad Squirrel
- New River
- Pope’s Yard
- Tring (open for collections only)
Continue to support your local pubs and breweries through this difficult time. Together we can get through this crisis.
April 2020 Quiz
Nothing more than a bit of sport to help get us through these difficult times. We aim to produce monthly quizzes during the crisis and will publish a leader board of top scorers on this page to keep the interest going.
There are 5 rounds of ten questions and each question attracts 1 point – so 50 on total. The Chair’s scoring of entries will be friendly but final!
Closing Time is Sunday 26 April. Good luck!
