Anita added: ‘We have all experienced unprecedented times recently, but we are eager to be able to play a small role in still being at the heart of our community.

‘During lockdown we started a takeaway food service, which we are still currently operating, in addition to eat-in.

‘It has been hugely popular, and it was great to be able to stay in touch with our locals. We have now been reopen since July 7 and it is great to welcome all our customers, safely, back through our doors so we can celebrate this award with them.’
