Restaurants will be able to serve customers outdoors from Monday, after the Government confirmed its plans to ease restrictions.
From May 17, diners can be served indoors, and the Government hopes to lift almost all lockdown restrictions from June 21.
People will only be able to meet up in groups of six or as two households when visiting a restaurant from Monday, and the opening only extends to outdoor areas.
Current rules to order a substantial meal alongside an alcoholic drink will be scrapped and there will be no Government requirement for a curfew. Customers will have to order, eat and drink while seated outside and if people are being shown to a table or using the toilet, they will need to wear a mask.
Here are just some of the Weston restaurants which, Government guidance permitting, will open their doors from Monday.
Brunello Lounge in Beach Road
The owners ‘can't wait’ to see people back at the Lounge. The restaurant said it will not be taking bookings for outside dining, which is on a ‘first-come-first-serve' basis.
