Pubs and breweries across Weston are adapting their services as they continue to pull pints during the second lockdown.

After Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a second national lockdown from November 5, non-essential shops were ordered to close until December 2, which included public houses.

Many establishments across the Mercury patch have set up delivery and collection services to ensure drinkers can support them in lockdown.
