Last updated: 17 November 2020

In light of new government lockdown restrictions, we have outlined below how each of our charity services will be impacted during this second national lockdown. Contact details for each service can be found under the relevant section.

Malt Cross

Will-Wakefield-Malt-Cross-LukeWe are available on Uber Eats!

Whilst our building will be closed in line with government restrictions, we will be operating an Uber Eats limited menu from this Friday (6 November) to ensure customers can still enjoy Malt Cross quality offerings throughout lockdown. Delivery hours will be Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (2pm – 10pm). One member of the kitchen team will be running the entire arrangement to minimise risk of infection.

Pub Quiz goes virtual (Mondays)

The Malt Cross Pub Quiz will now take place via our Facebook Page (@maltcrossnotts). Quiz Master Jake Cornes will be running the Malt Cross quiz remotely at 7.30pm every Monday.

All calls to our landline are advised to reach out to where messages will be picked up each morning and evening.
