Last week Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed step three of England’s roadmap out of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions can proceed on schedule
After months of restrictions, pubs and restaurants will be allowed to open indoors, with the 'rule of six' in place inside and groups of up to 30 outside.
Venues, such as The Talbot Tap House, will still only be permitted to offer table service.
Business owners must follow Covid safety guidelines including making sure they do not cater for groups beyond the legal limits.
