Sheffield real ale pub still offering freshly poured pints and food during lockdown
Freshly poured real ale and takeaway pub food is still on the menu at one of Sheffield’s most renowned hostelries.
The Harlequin - finalists in the Morning Advertiser Great British Pub Awards each year since 2016 - has been offering freshly poured beers and ciders to take out since lockdown started on March 21.
In addition, the Nursery Street pub has been offering a weekly grocery collection service for locals who wish to avoid queuing in and around supermarkets for essentials.
Landlady Liz Aspden said "Keeping our staff safe and helping to support our local community at a time like this is really important to us. By offering the take out and grocery collection service, we are also able to support other local businesses by continuing to trade with them."
All staff at the pub have been furloughed, and are being paid 100 per cent of their wages while pubs are closed during the crisis.
Ready meals of homemade pies and chips are also available for take out, as are freshly made chip butties.
The weekly Wednesday quiz is continuing online during the crisis, and is free to enter.
Contact the pub in advance to pre-order food and groceries, and bring your own containers for take outs where possible.
Collection is available between 5pm - 9pm . The pub can be contacted via twitter (@harlequinpub), facebook, e-mail ([email protected]) or text (07794156916) to check availability and arrange a collection time.
