While there's lots about London that we’re missing during lockdown, the loss of one simple pleasure has hit at the very core of British sensibilities: we just want a freshly poured pint.
While many breweries and drinks delivery services are mercifully delivering craft beers to our doors, there’s been nothing like a tap-fresh pint – until now.
With the government slightly relaxing lockdown rules and allowing us to have a socially distanced sit-down in the park, many pubs across London have partially reopened to sell takeaway draught beer to accompany the occasion.
Here are some pub saviours in South and West London - if we miss any local to you, please let us know!
