Helping independent food and drink businesses in Bradford thrive during lockdown

From your favourite small coffee shops to startup food producers and farmers, coronavirus has had a huge impact on the livelihoods of the lovely people in the food and drink industry. Here are a few ways that independent Bradford companies are offering their produce at this time:

Missing your favourite food?

Bradford is home to some wonderful restaurants that offer incredible food. Fortunately, many are now offering delivery and collection services while people are self isolating. For those missing a classic Bradford curry, Shimla Spice are offering delivery and collection orders so you can enjoy your favourite dishes at home; Nawaab Gourmet are also delivering great Indian cuisine straight to your door. Or maybe Italian is more your style, try Amici Ristorante and their delivery service of delicious pizza and pasta dishes, and even alcohol to wash it all down with.

Not sure what you fancy for tea but don’t fancy cooking, MyLahore have a wide range of food available for delivery all over Bradford. Tapas Tree can delight you with all their delicious dishes straight to your door. For vegan and vegetarian, check out Dandelion’s menu on Facebook which can all be freshly made and delivered to you! The Terrace in Saltaire, normal known for bistro style dining, are now offering a tasty range of burgers for delivery through Uber Eats. 

Wondering how to spend an afternoon in isolation, why not order afternoon tea from The Cake’Ole? They’re offering free delivery within 10 miles of their Keighley Cafe of their scrumptious cakes and sandwiches!

Maybe you’re missing a nice drink?

If you’re fancying a glass of wine or pint, plenty of bars and breweries are offering delivery services of all your favourite drinks! For a bit of Saltaire Blonde, head over to Saltaire Brewery. Over at Salt Brewery, you can get some lovely beers delivered to your door. And exclusively in BD17 and BD18, Cap and Collar are delivering some independent beers as well as great pub snacks. Or if wine is more your thing, Martinez Wines are taking order on their website so you can enjoy a nice glass of pinot Grigio or sauvignon blanc. The pub experience can be found through Rose & Crown, in Sunbridge Wells, who are running a delivery service through Nomadic Beers, as well as virtual pub socials.

If you’re craving a proper pint of cask ale, Keighley’s Wishbone Brewery are doing a ‘Beer for Social Distancing’ promotion with 18 different brews available in a 10 Litre Bag-in-Box…that’s 17 pints!

Or maybe you fancy something different?

The lovely Ursula, from Plant One on Me, is unable to offer a cuppa from her little shop on Upper Millergate. However, she is now selling her stock via the plantoneonmeyorkshire Facebook page. Maybe isolation is the perfect time to revamp your home and have some new plants and decorations delivered straight to your door!

It’s vital that we support local independent companies through these difficult times. Many owners, shopkeepers and staff use them to support their families and live through serving their communities.
