The Angel pub in Bermondsey will re-open for takeaway only from 15th April, writes Simon Throssell…
This is due to ordering in new stock and a lack of appropriate outdoor space for social distancing.
The pub sits in front of the remains of Edward III’s mansion; the English king who famously started the Hundred Years War.
Today, The Angel is a Samuel Smith’s pub located at the end of Bermondsey Wall East on the Thames Path.
A member of staff described its lockdown closure as ‘awful’ particularly as all 12 staff were put on furlough, many of whom were students.
The Angel look forward to welcoming regulars and new customers back inside at the end of Spring.
Pubs and bars can reopen for indoor food and drink from 17th May, at the earliest.
