A takeaway and doorstep delivery service has purchased three electric vehicles.

New charging stations have also been installed at the group of St Austell Brewery tenancies that run Pub Grub – the Victoria Inn in Roche, the Victoria Inn in Threemilestone and Perranworthal’s Norway Inn.

Pub Grub has been delivering hot meals – and a selection of beers and wines – to people’s homes, since the start of lockdown. To help meet ongoing demand for the service, Pub Grub has invested in a greener future and purchased three Renault ZOEs.

Mark Holden, Pub Grub founder, said: “I’m so proud of our teams in Truro, Roche and Perranworthal who have worked around the clock to make Pub Grub a success since we first launched in March. We’re proud to be able to deliver a little bit of comfort and convenience to our local communities, to see them through these challenging times.

“We’re delighted to introduce our three new recruits – our Renault ZOEs. Not only will these new vehicles help us to become more environmentally friendly, they are also a future-looking investment in our takeaway and delivery service. It’s important that we’re able to continue adapting to changing covid-19 regulations and helping those in our community who may be shielding or isolating.

“We have also invested in new EV charging stations – for all three of our pubs – which we hope will be helpful for our guests and local communities, when they visit us.”
