    In terms of food, I imagine there'd be plenty of frozen stuff, as well as snacks, and they'd probably already shopped for the weekend anyway. Might have been slightly different had it been a quiet midweek night, mind.

    According to our old window cleaner, who can talk for England, weather-enforced lock ins were apparently quite common when weather like this was more frequent in the 60s and 70s. What a ready-made excuse for the missus that one is when you roll in on Monday night!
    When I kept pubs in lower lying areas, food and drink supplies were largely determined by storage facilities. I usually had sufficient space for one weeks worth of stock for beer and food.
    Good sized cellars, and enough freezer space were the key factors. For food, different suppliers on different days plus local sourcing from farm shops etc.
    The dray would deliver weekly, unless you had a run on something. Brewery would always help out with that.

    Thanks for the grey blob Chico. Good to know that your assumptions about me are nearly as accurate as Cyrille’s
