Is Virgin still serving food and alcohol in business or have they gone the way of Qantas with bottled water only? I'm looking to dip my toes back into flying next month, but may stick down back if the seat is the only difference.

How egalitarian;) Perhaps charging 4x the price with no lounges is a little excessive then?
You'll get more than bread and water in business... but not really a meal.

But I think this post was before the latest email that I received on 12/06/20 which said:

While complimentary water and a snack will continue to be served to all guests, at this time, and to reduce unnecessary contact between guests and cabin crew, additional food and drinks will no longer be available for purchase onboard.​

It's up to you - such minimum service was advertised before that email was sent out as well.

The only advantage of business now is if there are 2 of you you need not sit next to anyone else.

In V and Q is there a way for a couple to book and pay for 3 seats in economy, so no stranger in the 3rd seat in the row-airline should be doing this anyway? Probably cheaper than 2 in business and not much different service wise now.

Search this site for "comfort seat".

You do get the SCs and points for the EXST as well
