Covid tier restrictions have changed many people's expectations for seeing in the New Year but one innovative Banburyshire pub is offering a special slap-up takeaway.

The Yew Tree pub in Avon Dassett has been unable to offer its usual welcoming restaurant service but its chefs have been put together a menu for a full three-course meal with fizz for customers to collect for post-Christmas and New Year celebrations.

But those wanting one of these super meals must hurry - orders need to be made by 7pm this evening (Tuesday).

Landlord Jack McEntee said: "People have had enough without having to cook a big meal again - they deserve a night off.

"Normally we'd expect to be serving a full restaurant but because of the restrictions we've come up with a fantastic takeaway idea instead.

"We are offering takeaway meals for this evening and New Year’s Eve. Customers can choose a starter, main course and dessert with a bottle of wine or fizz from our unique menu and let us manage all the preparation so they can put their feet up."

The orders will be available at safely-timed, 15-minute intervals from 11am - 5pm on the day. The Yew Tree chefs will cook the meals freshly each morning and prepare and individually package the meals which will have an instruction pack for re-heating at home.
