Cirencester’s Corn Hall Deli and restaurant MBB Brasserie had recently transformed into an indoor market but due to increased social distancing measures is to become an online and phone supermarket.

As the coronavirus continues to affect public movements due to the latest lockdown measures the market has become a pick-up and go supermarket, with customers asked to call the restaurant number to order essential groceries or ready meals that are being prepared by chefs of both MBB Brasserie and The Kings Head Hotel.

Their orders can then be delivered straight to the customers’ car at the front or back of The Corn Hall.

MBB executive chef Ethan Rodgers has pulled on and utilised his trusted suppliers to provide essentials like bread, eggs and fresh fruit and vegetables as well as other products that are available to order over the phone or online for pick up.

“We are also looking to go out into rural areas and help the villages via online delivery or perhaps pop up at a village hall or centre, especially if further lockdown measures are taken,” Ethan explained.

“It is a safer way to shop with many not wanting to visit large supermarkets; we are a kind of drive-thru, a pick and collect cutting down physical handling and contact of your groceries and order.

"We have fresh fruit and vegetables and our ready meals are quite large so would be good for couples.

"We are also making pies and our own sausage rolls.

“We have been in touch with the local authorities as we are looking to work with charities and those who need help right now.

"We are offering NHS staff free delivery as well as 20 percent off products in accordance with the Blue Light Card initiative and delivered some of our boxed meals to the police.” the executive chef of both MBB Brasserie and The Kings Head Hotel added.
