It’s official! Restaurants, cafes and pubs will open their doors from 4 July. And while social distancing will have to be in place and booking is encouraged, you can finally make it back to your favourite spot for a freshly poured pint and that plate of food you’ve been dreaming about since lockdown started.
It’s the news many restaurants and diners have been waiting for, especially since social distancing rules were relaxed from two metres to one metre plus. In London, pubs and restaurants are brushing off three-months worth of dust, removing window panels and preparing for the return of diners. If social media is anything to go by, the huge numbers of enthusiastic tweets paint a very positive picture.
What’s becoming clear is most places will require bookings. To help you nab a table at your favourite spots Culture Trip has rounded up some of the most exciting London reopenings below; go forth, prosper and dine to your heart’s desire.
Set to become the world’s biggest socially distanced beer garden, the new Truman Brewery is opening its doors for the first time on 4 July, and is the perfect place to grab a pint while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Features including hand sanitiser everywhere, paying and ordering from your table, spaced-apart seating areas and a booking system are all on hand to make this the most corona-friendly pub garden around.
