Pubs planning on opening from 12th April

We will update this list to include new venues as soon as their opening plans become known.
Please keep checking back.

Plans, opening hours & arrangements such as bookings requirements may change quickly as the situation is very fluid & many venues are trying to get a feel for demand etc. We recommend you check with the venue direct for definite up-to-date information. You can also check the WhatPub entry for each pub

If your aware of any venues we’ve missed from the list or if any of  the listed venues don’t open/don’t have real ale or craft beer please let us know on Here
