With the pub and hospitality industry facing a tough few months, pub manager Maz Pearson said: “These are worrying times for everyone but as a business we are trying to stay positive and be as proactive as possible.

“The pub is at the heart of the community and in difficult times people would normally come here and enjoy the support of others.

“However that is not going to possible if you are having to self-isolate, so if they can’t go to the pub then we can at least go to them, they just need someone who can come and collect it.”
