Support Bristol independent businesses during Covid-19

 

With the government having taken the decision to close restaurants, pubs and other businesses throughout the UK in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19, our local independents have had a tough choice to make. Do they close their doors until all this is over, or do they adapt and change the way they operate to keep the money coming in and to give us all something to get excited about during these stressful and upsetting times?

Many have chosen to do the latter as a result of Covid-19, completely changing their customer offering to meet with this unusual and unexpected change in circumstances. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but here’s how you can still support Bristol food and drink businesses while Covid-19 remains a threat.

**to clarify, this post is NOT recommending that you go out if you don’t absolutely have to. Social distancing is VITAL to beat this thing – if you can stay at home and just accept deliveries, it’s by far the wisest thing to do!**

  1. The Orchard Coffee and Co are doing home deliveries and take away.

  2. That is a really useful list – thank you, I’ve bookmarked it :o)

  3. Gotta support each other and so we are making Eatsy online ordering system FREE to use throughout this tough period. Hoping all local and UK businesses get through this tough period. Adapting and no contact approach is key. Which is why we are simply removing any charges we can, to allow people to have online ordering pre payment to enable contactless delivery.
    We have never done this and will do our best to support everyone. Note there are no contracts so people can use Eatsy for food/drink ordering for as long as this goes on and then turn it off if they wish.
    To join just email me or join@eatsy.co.uk or register on the website.
    If we can do anything else please get in touch.
    Note we don’t have people to do deliveries it is just the system to place and manage the orders and can work for anywhere doing food or drink etc
    Stay safe
