PUBS across the UK are getting ready to open their outdoor seating areas to the public next week.

We have already taken a look at all of the Wetherspoons beer gardens reopening in West Yorkshire- now it’s time to see how many Greene Kings pubs will be throwing their doors open too.

Greene King will reopen 442 of its managed pubs outdoors in England from Monday 12 April as an important first step towards the goal of normal trading by June, under the government’s roadmap to lifting restrictions.

The 442 pubs represent just under a third of Greene King’s managed pubs in England.

Customers are able to book a garden table online- but some venues will also allow people to visit the pub outdoors without an advance booking.

Marking this important first step towards 21 June when all restrictions are lifted, Greene King chief executive Nick Mackenzie said: “It’s great that we can finally open outdoor areas in some of our pubs after such a long period of lockdown and we can’t wait to start welcoming our customers back, safely.

“Sadly, we can only open around a third of our estate in April where we have outdoor space that will work and have a chance of being viable, but we know the vital role pubs play in communities and feel it’s important to open as many as we can to help people get back together once again.

“We look forward to May when we can open many more of our pubs, and the all-important return to normality in June when the restrictions are fully removed, and we can start to rebuild our businesses. Until then, we all have our fingers crossed for sunshine and warm temperatures in April!”
