England’s second national lockdown and tighter restrictions across the rest of the UK mean that many pubs, restaurants and cafes will be closed until at least 2 December, but takeaway service is still available from many outlets.
In response to this, Morrisons supermarket has brought back its national takeaway service for the four week lockdown - and is offering a Christmas meal for a bargain price.
Takeaway Christmas dinner
The ‘hot food to go’ takeaway service is available in all 404 Morrisons cafes nationwide and can be used throughout the lockdown period in England.

A wide variety of affordable takeaway meals will be on offer, including a selection of festive food.
The seasonal additions to the menu include a Christmas dinner and Christmas pudding for just £5.50.
The dinner includes a main dish of turkey, stuffing and pigs in blankets, with roast and mashed potatoes, sprouts, carrots, Yorkshire pudding, gravy and cranberry sauce. For dessert, the Christmas pudding comes served with a rich brand sauce or custard.
Other festive selections are also up for grabs, including a festive afternoon tea for two with brie and cranberry sandwiches, festive turkey wraps, a selection of rich festive cakes and mince pies, two mini cheesecake pots, plus two cups of tea - all for £12.
Christmas offerings aside, customers can still order the cafe staples such as fish and chips for £5, and bacon or sausage sandwiches plus a hot drink for £2.50.
All items on the menu are prepared by hand and packaged in cardboard takeaway boxes.
