From Monday 12th April, pubs can re-open their gardens and outdoor space. Many Brakspear pubs are counting down the days to welcome customers back in again and so here’s your handy guide to which pubs are taking table bookings, have outdoor heaters and even those who will welcome the dog you got during Lockdown too.

Tom Davies, CEO said “We appreciate lots of people are keen to get back to the pub again and so we wanted to make life easier by letting everyone know what pubs are offering. We’re lucky that all our pubs are unique and so have different ways of working but we’re keen to get the message out there about who’s doing what. After speaking to our landlords, there’s been plenty of hard work to get the pub gardens ready to welcome everyone back.”

Customers are being encouraged to bring their own blankets, sun creme and umbrellas, ready for whatever the Great British weather has in store.

The website also details those pubs with heaters and marquees as well as those with children’s play areas too.
