Like the wider catering industry, fish and chip shops have been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

By the time the first lockdown was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on March 23 last year, restaurants, cafes and pubs had already been closed three days prior on March 20.

While it was expected restrictions would last a few weeks, it was not months down the line until they did so.

Restaurants and pubs that did not operate takeaway facilities quickly adapted their service to do so, while many takeaways themselves did outstanding work for the community.

Whether that was making meals for workers on the frontline of the pandemic, or delivering meals to the vulnerable, takeaways stood up and served their communities in an altogether different way compared to normal.
