LIKE many people, our weekend often includes a meal out (or at the least a takeout) as a reward for a week's hard working (and a respite from the washing up).

So with coronavirus biting and pubs/cafes/restaurants ordered by the Government to shut their doors on Friday night, we thought we'd try our luck with one of the local businesses turning to doing takeaway/home delivery for our Saturday night treat.

We're not big fans of home delivery - for one thing, our house is on the street where the numbers don't go in sequence and even swop from being odd to even on the same side of the road at one point, which can be confusing people people trying to find us in the dark

A quick search round revealed plenty of places to choose from, and we opted for The Old Ham Tree in Holt, on the grounds that it was only a few minutes drive and because their picture on Facebook of their cleverly-organised takeaway window caught our fancy.

An email got us a copy of the new takeaway menu, which is based on their usual offering, and gave us ample choice at reasonable prices: £8 for a main meal, £6 for a smaller portion for a child sized appetite, £4 for sides like cheesy chips.
