The Pigeon, in Camberwell, London, will be re-opening from today (27th May) for take-away sales of craft beer, pre-mixed cocktails, and wine.
The venue has undergone a renovation to ensure that it is best placed to operate within the government guidelines. This includes the addition of new fridges to maximise the variety and amount of take-away as much as possible.
It is adhering to every piece of the government guidelines while operating, only allowing two people in the store at a time, taking contactless payments only, and with the staff wearing PPE at all times.
Jack Hobday, chairman and co-director of brewery Anspach & Hobday, which created The Pigeon, said: “We’d like to thank the council, the community, and our landlord for their great support at what has been a difficult time for everyone. We’re really pleased to now be in the position where we can open up, return to a little bit of normality, and provide plenty of great beverages to the good people of Camberwell.”
The Pigeon came to Camberwell Church Street in October 2018. The bar has ten-lines of draught beer and four fridgesm along with classic board games, darts, and a PlayStation One.
Anspach & Hobday in particular are known for their diverse range of beers, inspired by traditional styles remade for the 21st century beer drinker — everything from historic ales and porters to experimental sours and IPAs.
Founded in 2013 by childhood friends Paul Anspach and Jack Hobday, the brewery is undergoing rapid growth following a successful round of crowdfunding early in 2019. Anspach & Hobday are best known for their flagship beer, The Porter.
