It feels like a lifetime ago since the UK government announced on Friday 20th March that all hospitality and entertainment venues, such as cafes, pubs and restaurants needed to be closed to the public.
Now we are all staying home as much as possible, it has been a huge relief to know that they can still provide take out and delivery for customers.
Lots of businesses in Surrey have decided to do just that and keep their businesses open, providing local residents with a much needed escape from the daily routine. Delicious pizzas, curries and even desserts are simply a click away. For one delightful moment you can transport yourself to life before lockdown with a meal cooked for you as well as indulging in a bottle of wine or beer.
Take a look through some of the Surrey businesses that are still providing food and drink for both new and existing customers.
