Tier restrictions and subsequent lockdowns have meant that pubs in Worksop have been closed since last year and residents are eagerly awaiting their reopening for outdoor drinking and dining on April 12.
Punters could be allowed to meet indoors at a pub or restaurant in groups of up to six people, or two households, from May 17.
We have put together a list of the pubs that plan to open in April and May and will be updating this page when venues release more details about their plans.
We have included details about pre-booking spaces.
We want to hear from you if you run a local pub, please let us know what you have planned for the big re-opening next month by emailing [email protected]
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Sam Jackson, editor.
