A FINE-DINING restaurant is offering different takeaway meals on a Friday night while they remain closed in lockdown.

Next Friday (February 26), the Freemasons at Wiswell will be offering "Mr Smith's Chippy Tea", adding an element of luxury to classic Friday night fish and chips.

Many restaurants and pubs across East Lancashire have organised takeaway meals to gain some income throughout lockdown.

As well as the chippy tea, the award-winning gastropub is offering a Mother's Day special meal too.

Head chef, Steven Smith, who learnt his trade at Blackburn College, has said that the takeaways have been important to remind the public that they are still going.

He said: "We want to keep ourself ticking over and also I think it's very important in this lockdown that we still engage with our customers.

"With the reputation we have, the chippy tea, the burger night and the curry night - we are giving people what they would want from a takeaway and just doing it to the best that we can."

This week's menu includes three courses with prawn and crayfish cocktail or sticky BBQ spare ribs as a starter, fish and chips and steamed steak and mushroom pudding and chips as well as a selection of sides, and a Rolo pot and set vanilla custard with Yorkshire rhubarb for dessert.

Starters are priced at £6, mains at £12 and desserts also £6 with sides priced at £1.

The restaurant asks that just one person picks up the order through the main entrance.

To order, email enquiries@freemasonswiswell.co.uk with what you would like and your telephone number and the staff will get back to you with a collection time slot and will take payment.
