[Updated: April 15]
I don’t know about you but I’m chomping at the bit to get back out there. April 12th is in my diary in big fat capital letters and while it’s not quite the full return to eating somewhere other than my own dining room, I’ll take it for what it is. According to the government’s road map out of lockdown, pubs, bars and restaurants can open their outside space from April 12th. So even if I have to put on my winter coat, wear my gloves or sit in the rain, I will be there.
I reckon there are a lot of you out there looking for places in Coventry & Warwickshire with outdoor space so I’ve put together a little list of places that are opening. There are links if you want to check out more details or book a table. Remember, you probably will have to book in advance for most of them.
The Lounge – Kitchen & Bar, Clifton-on-Dunsmore
The Merchants (opening as a shop & off-licence from 12th but also possibly the garden)
The Old Lion, Harborough Magna (just at weekends to start with)
The Rose Inn, Willoughby (from 14th)
The Kenilworth (weekends only to start)
Farmers Fayre at the National Agricultural Centre
The Woodsman (from April 15th)
