This week, The Pig is mostly…
GEARING up for doorstep deliveries again! We’ve done it before so we can do it again… thanks in no small part to the lovely local independent food and drink businesses who will keep us calmly carrying on throughout November and beyond. Your definitive Lockdown 2 shopping list starts here!
DAIRY, pantry and larder essentials, ready meals and, of course, the most fabulous bread and associated sweet treat delights for miles around available ‘live’ from Thoughtful Bread (their Barton Street HQ will remain open throughout lockdown), via click’n’collect/home delivery or dropped off at Community Collection Points in Batheaston, Bathampton and Midsomer Norton (https://thoughtful-bakery.myshopify.com)
TOP notch, marvellous meat alongside fish, dairy produce and pantry goodies IRL at Larkhall Butchers (paying full respect to social distancing rules, of course) or via doorstep delivery (https://larkhallbutchers.co.uk)
BOX deliveries of all kinds of everything (especially our 5-a-day supplies) from Lovejoys, whose services to takeaway kitchens, farm shops, care homes and schools will also remain unaffected throughout November (https://www.lovejoyswholesale.com)
THE ultimate comfort food (that’ll be fish and chips suppers, then!) available for home delivery/click’n’collect from The Oyster Shell. Meanwhile, the Scallop Shell will be reverting from eat-in only back to take away for the duration of the second lockdown (https://www.theoystershell.co.uk / https://www.thescallopshell.co.uk)
SUPERB Cantonese, Szechuan and Peking feasts from The Peking (Kingsmead Square), who are offering a takeaway and home delivery service from 6pm-10pm throughout the second lockdown at a 15% reduction on menu prices (http://www.pekingrestaurantbath.co.uk)
BOISTEROUS burgers from Schwartz Bros, who will be offering a click’n’collect service at both their Saw Close and Walcot Street branches seven days a week (opening hours vary slightly; visit website for specific branch details – https://www.schwartzbros.co.uk)
AND to drink with all that… tipples courtesy of Novel Wines, who are offering a free delivery (no minimum order) to BA1/BA2 postcodes (https://www.novelwines.co.uk)
