Now there’s no better excuse to tuck in to a Jolly Good Scotch Egg… with 5p from every sale being donated to fund vital COVID-19 research right here in Bristol.

Max, Olly and Josh from The Jolly Hog recently visited the research team at Southmead Hospital to find out how Coronavirus research is hoping to progress new understanding of the virus, potential treatments to save lives and the long term impact on survivors.

At the start of the pandemic, The Jolly Hog set up Miss Piggy – a catering service on the Southmead Hospital site providing free meals to NHS staff.

Over three months they served up more than 20,000 free sausage, bacon and vegetarian baps to staff at the hospital.
