The Spotted Frog pub, on Chatsworth Road, Chesterfield.

Under the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, hospitality venues can reopen for outdoor table service in April – and bosses at The Spotted Frog have wasted no time in revamping the outdoors area at the venue.

The Chatsworth Road pub now features eight VIP ‘beach huts’ with their own TVs, heaters, Wi-Fi and USB connections.

Pub bosses say a total of 250 outdoor seats will be provided when the pub reopens.
