Greene King is beginning to rollout a takeaway offering to its customers in a bid to provide traditional pub meals for people who are social distancing due to coronavirus.
The rollout of the takeaway service will start with 50 Greene King and Hungry Horse pubs by the 22 March, and the intention is to increase to 500 over the coming weeks.
The takeaway menu will include pub classics such as fish and chips, steak and ale pie, burger and chips, as well as a range of bottled beer, wine and soft drinks.
“Providing our locals with a pub food takeaway service has been in the plan for a while, but we’ve accelerated it due to the impact coronavirus is having on our local communities.
“Our pubs are at the heart of the local community and we are continuing to look at other ways we can support communities during the current crisis.”
Greene King already offers delivery in its Loch Fyne restaurants, Metropolitan Pub Company pubs and some of its London-based sites. The business is exploring how this might be rolled out further.
