Default Preston Pub Owner is selling Meals for a penny

Defiant pub owner starts selling meals for a Penny
so he can stay open despite Tier 3 anti-Covid lockdown rules




[Owner of the Ships and Giggles,
tried to serve up free food with drinks
as Preston entered lockdown
last week - after an intervention
by the council, the pub landlord is offering
meals for just a penny]

[Plates of chicken and chips left 'so many people' feeling 'grateful,'
says Mr MacDonald, as he plans to expand his menu from this weekend]

Pubs can only open if serving food with the drinks so he started giving out free food but the council said he wasn't allowed so now he's charging a penny.

I don't think he originally served food but wanted to stay open and this is a.way he could. People can only get a drink if they buy a "substantial" meal and so by doing this people can drink in there legally without having to fork out for a meal they don't want I think anyway.
