How to enjoy your favourite food from Rutland's delightful array of independent pubs, restaurants and cafes through this stay-at-home period!

Missing “Date Night” or “Eating Out” in Rutland’s delightful array of independent pubs, restaurants & cafes?

We most certainly are…

To help make this stay-at-home time a little more bearable, we’ve been hunting for the eateries in Rutland that are now offering a contactless delivery or collection service! We didn’t think there were many at first, however, after searching through a lot of Facebook & Instagram posts we realised just how many people have diversified into takeaway services using collection and delivery methods.

To save you from having to do the same level of trawling through the internet, we wanted to give you the list of all of the places that we have found! From afternoon teas to Sunday lunch and from coffee to real ale! Rutland has a lot to offer to help keep you fed & well hydrated whilst staying home, take advantage of things where you can. We're sure they will really appreciate it.

We are sure there are lots more out there but these are the main ones we’ve come across and wanted to share with you. If you’ve found somewhere else then let us know by tagging us on Facebook or by emailing us. We’d love to know about it. Oakham continues to have a market on Wednesday & Saturday with usual appearances from B Faulkner and Sons, Belvoir Bakery, Northfield Farm Shop & Butchery and Neil Cavner & Sons Seafood. Uppingham also features the same names on a Friday. 

We must look after our local business as much as possible through these unprecedented times. We’ve spoken to lots of our neighbouring businesses recently and all appear to be extremely keen to continue to serve you as soon as it is safe enough to do so. 

Stay safe out there.
