Takeaways, pubs and restaurants

Many of our local eateries are still offering takeaway. Let’s do what we can to support them: 

*Please note: We do our best to list our local restaurants, cafes and pubs here and on our business directory to encourage our readers to support our fantastic local business during these current difficult times. However, we are a small team working part-time and cannot guarantee that the opening times and information listed are 100% up-to-date. For the latest information, please visit the outlets’ Facebook pages and websites and please encourage them to get listed on Happeninginherts.com or claim their free basic listings on our website*
