Numerous fast food outlets, restaurants or cafés in Nantwich that closed in March due to the coronavirus crisis have slowly started to reopen for takeaway services in line with government guidelines.

Customers are asked to queue two metres apart with contactless payment the preferred method at most businesses. There are currently no seating areas allowed on premises.

Products are available via takeaway and collection, with some offering online food delivery.

Frequently updated food outlet information is available via the ‘Nantwich Take-away and delivery’ Facebook page.

One such food outlet which recently reopened is the Nantwich Bookshop and Coffee Lounge on High Street in the centre of the town. Steve Lawson, of the Nantwich Bookshop and Coffee Lounge, said: “We have started with a soft opening by serving hot drinks and tray bakes. From our opening day it was clear that folk have missed their favourite Barista produced coffees. It is wonderful seeing the joy on people’s faces as they have their first sips.

“We have limited hours from 9am until 2pm to begin with, depending on how busy we are. We will be closed on Sundays so that I can recoup my energies for book deliveries the following week. Thank you to everyone for their support during this time.”
