The Queen’s Head, in Queen Street, which opens out onto St John’s Square, will be doing just that from April 12.

The Pizza, Pots and Pints pub has announced it will be back doing what it does best when restrictions are lifted on that date allowing the hospitality trade to serve outdoors.

The pub, which also boasts seating at the rear and a roof terrace, will be making the most of the space outside on the Square, just as it did last summer.
