Spring is here, the weather is warming up and with the UK’s roadmap in place, soon we’ll be allowed to eat and drink outside at venues with outside space.

From 12th April, we’ll see businesses begin to open, with further restriction easing in May.

If you’re looking for an outside drink or dining this summer then the restaurants and pubs listed below come with outside space. Please check opening hours with the establishment before visiting as some may choose to stay closed for a little longer.

Selecting the business name below will open the business website as a new tab.
