A PUB famed for its links with world renowned poet Laurie Lee is serving up beers and meals on wheels to keep regulars well-oiled during the coronavirus outbreak.

Slad's Woolpack inn, a public house for more than 300 years is launching a takeaway service - with meals from their regular pub menus available for collection or a free delivery service.

It follows the Government’s advice this week for people not to frequent pubs and restaurants in a bid to halt the spread of the virus.

“We’re concentrating on the food delivery side and are now halting all dining at the pub,” revealed pub owner Daniel Chadwick.

“Our general manager Harry Wynne-Morgan and brilliant chef Adam Glover and the rest of the staff have been seriously amazing during this crazy time.

“Pub goers are welcome to pop in and place a takeaway order of food and beer, but we will deliver for free within a five-mile radius.

“We will provide shepherd’s pie, lasagne and much more and also r a week’s supply of vegetables in a box and other essential supplies like milk butter eggs.”
