This week, The Pig is mostly…
FINDING it hard to keep up at the back! Doors to restaurants, pubs and bars are opening at the speed of light from Saturday 4th July. But not all hospitality businesses are equal, in terms of reopening announcements and plans – and nobody yet knows how the ‘new normal’ will look, feel or work. Talking of which…
STILL digesting and discussing the results of two recent Pig Guide Twitter surveys, which resulted in a snapshot of opinions on reopening plans. Only 5.7% of Piggies have made a restaurant reservation for July 4th+, while a whopping 66.3% of respondents told us that they’re “not even considering it.” The same question posed regarding casual pub trips yielded similar results: 13.8% are heading straight to the bar, 55% are going in the opposite direction. Got an opinion on the subject? You know where I am!
FASCINATED by brand new pop-up venture Jikoni – “an adventure in food from Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia and Tanzania”, no less – now offering takeaway and home delivery to Bath addresses every Friday and Saturday evening (pre-orders only) – call 07446 150017 or follow Jikoni on Twitter @EastJikoni
GOIN’ fishing at the Scallop Shell’s brand new online fishmonger and splashing around the fabulous selection of super-fresh shellfish – if the Fruits de Mer pops up, drop it in your net pronto! While we’re on the subject of Bath’s best-loved chippie: the restaurant has reopened to take reservations from Thursday 9th July https://www.thescallopshell.co.uk
URGING all Piggies not to let the excitement of the city centre slowly returning to “business as usual” to continue to support the Bath food and drink businesses who went (and continue to go) above and beyond the call of duty to keep Bath buzzing from the very start of lockdown. You used them “then”… so don’t lose them now! https://thepigguide.com/lockdown-larder-the-essential-guide-to-food-and-drink-shopping-in-bath/
