The Duke of York, on Greenhill in Lichfield, reopened its doors in July following Government guidance.

Bosses at the Joules Brewery pub decided not to reopen the pub's kitchen and instead invite Midlands-based street food businesses to cater for punters.

Craig Giblin, manager of The Duke of York, said: "We took the decision not to reopen the kitchen but to work with a number of street food traders, some which are from the local areas themselves.

"Street food is available from Wednesday to Saturday, a different option daily and can be eaten in or taken away.

"A minimum of 1p donation is required which goes to the local community group, Helping Each Other Lichfield."

An additional heated marquee has been put in place to allow for additional seating due to the capacity being reduced in order to be Covid compliant.

Craig added: "The Duke is looking forward to hosting a beer festival from October 29 to November 1 which will of course be a little different as tab;e service will be in place.

"The festival will host the fabulous Joules Brewery range from Market Drayton along with a selection of other ales and ciders, with street food traders supplying some amazing food."

The venue is over 18s only and also dog friendly.

More information about the upcoming beer festival will be released on the Duke of York's social media pages in the coming weeks.
