    Ok, quick answer is not yet. WhatPub www.whatpub.com now has a search box "Only show pubs offering takeaway or other additional services during closure period." but basically populating the database with information is a slow business, information is slow coming in and is changing all the time, One pub in the area has changed what it is doing 4 times in the last week so difficult to get it sorted. If anyone can let me know I can get it on the system or if you are a CAMRA member you can update information about pubs & breweries takeaway services yourself at https://camra.org.uk/pullingtogether/. To my knowledge Titanic, Slaters, Lymestone, Beowulf, Uttoxeter Bry are all doing some form of beer takeaway &/or home delivery. Titanic are arranging for beers ordered through the brewery website to be collected at their pubs at set times (the Bods slots are Tuesday and Thursday from 7pm to 8:30pm).

    Not helpful to you but the Cock at Woodseaves and the Dog & Partridge at Marchington are doing takeaway and home delivery meals locally.

    And you can have a look here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/pullingtogetherforpubspintsandpeople/

    Getting a bit of information sorted. Go to www.whatpub.com and in the search box (picture below) type Stafford, or Staffordshire if you want a wider picture. A lot of the places are only doing Sunday lunch. More will be added and there will be changes so keep trying. (taken me all day to enter what is on there so it is going to take time).

    Pretty much as much information as I can find now on the system. Not that many pubs doing anything as far as I can find, perhaps 20-22 in the whole Stafford & Stone area so easiest to do a search for Staffordshire. Most doing takeaway food, often to preorder, a few doing drinks, also one or two closed but acting as co-ordination centres for local groups supporting people at the present time. If anyone finds any more information please let me know nd I will get it on the system.

    We had take-away from Vivare delivered tonight, it took probably 15mins longer then it should have done to arrive but my guess was they had been very busy.

    Just as tasty as going to the restaurant, we'd missed our Florentina pizzas.

    https://vivere-stafford.com (I'm losing track of how to order from places)
