THE Gerard Arms will offer a click and collect takeaway and a delivery service.

The Dentons Green pub will offer the service from Wednesday, June 10 as brewery Greene King, expands its delivery and takeaway services outside of London to pubs across the country.

Following the launch of takeaway, delivery and deli services from its Metropolitan Pub Company division in London, Greene King is rolling out click and collect takeaway from 40 pubs, including the Gerard.

The pubs will start trading from Wednesday, June 10, offering a range of classic pub dishes such as fish and chips and steak and ale pie.

A limited range of packaged beers, wines and soft drinks will be available to purchase alongside food orders including Greene King’s Ice Breaker Pale Ale.

Takeaway dishes can be ordered through the Greene King app or via phone to the pub. All pubs will operate card payment as part of new stringent health and safety guidelines.

Healthy and safety of team members, customers and delivery riders has been prioritised with Greene King introducing additional hygiene and safety measures for those working in and entering the pubs for collection of orders, alongside government social distancing guidelines. Where possible delivery riders will collect orders from a separate entrance, while a one-way system for customers to collect orders, social distancing floor guidance and hand sanitiser at the entrances of the pub will be in place.

Pubs have been closed since March 20. The Prime Minister said the government is aiming to reopen some of the hospitality industry in phase three of the easing of the coronavirus lockdown on July 4.

Speaking about the latest development Nick Mackenzie, Chief Executive, Greene King said; “We know the British public are missing the pub, so with pubs still closed for now the pub experience at home is the next best thing. Our click and collect takeaway and delivery services in London have been a huge success and customer feedback is that they love they can order for the whole household, with everyone choosing their favourite dish and not restricted to just one style of cuisine.”

“Health and safety remains the guiding principle for all our decision making around offering takeaway and delivery services so that our teams feel protected at work and customers feel safe when they visit.”
