The White Swan in St Albans re-opened this week but with strict restrictions in place, their pub wasn’t able to open as they would have liked. However, with a need to generate an income at one of their busiest times of year they decided they would open as a takeaway service and have also created a wonderful Christmas Shop!
On their Facebook page they made the following announcement:
First of all, we would like to say thank you for the continued support during the second lockdown, we appreciate it more than you could possibly imagine! As many of you may know, we are a primarily “Wet led” Pub, which means the vast majority of our turnover comes from alcohol sales, although we do serve food and have a fully equipped (but very small) kitchen, it’s simply not possible for us to serve everyone. All things considered and after the announcement of these ludicrous new rules regarding “Substantial meals” (what even is that?!)We have made the decision to continue operating as a takeaway. But that’s not all!!! With Christmas literally just around the corner and with plenty of space to make use of, we have transformed The White Swan into a Christmas Shop! So along with your takeaway mulled wine & draught beers to enjoy while you stroll around St Albans, we will be selling Christmas Hampers, gifts, toys, jewellery and lots more!! Call in and see for yourself. We will have plenty for the kids too! Don’t forget to take a selfie with our giant Teddy! Once again we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you all over the Christmas
