Our tenants at the Victoria Inn in Roche, the Victoria Inn in Threemilestone and Perranworthal’s Norway Inn have purchased three 100% electric vehicles.
The new cars will be used for their new group takeaway and doorstep delivery service – Pub Grub.
Pub Grub has been delivering hearty hot meals - and a selection of St Austell Brewery 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 - recently named the Best Small Electric Car 2020.
Mark Holden, St Austell Brewery tenants and 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. It’s great 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. We hope these will be helpful for our locals and guests, who need to recharge their vehicles when they visit us.”
From hearty food including carvery and fish and chips, to delicious desserts including sticky toffee pudding and apple crumble – there’s something on the Pub Grub menu for everybody. The service also offers a selection of soft drinks, wines and local beers. All food orders come with re-heating instructions and a full list of ingredients.
