A 438-year-old pub has become a village shop and is offering deliveries as people across Norfolk self-isolate during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Burston Crown, in Burston, is offering to deliver supplies and meals in the village and neighbouring Shimpling.
Owner, Bev Kembery, said: “Some of our customers can’t come and so we are now offering a meals on wheels service so local villagers can order from our menu and we will take it to them.”

The temporary village shop at the Burston Crown will allow villagers to buy food essentials and even toilet rolls for those who cannot get into the bigger shops in Diss.
Steve Kembery, co-owner and chef, said: “Meals on wheels will be an interesting challenge but my scooter is ready for action. Who knows, it may be a meal for four and a bag of potatoes we take to villagers. It is important for us to support the people who have supported us over the years.”
