Greene King is to reopen 12 of its managed pubs outdoors in Cambridgeshire from Monday, April 12, as an important first step towards the goal of normal trading by June, under the government’s roadmap to lifting restrictions.

Locally, that includes The Boathouse at Thorpe Meadows, and Mulberry Tree Farm at Hampton Vale, in Peterborough.

Customers can book a garden table online from Friday, March 26, although people will also be able to visit the pub outdoors without an advance booking.

The brewery says some pubs will have reduced opening hours and menus, and this information along with how to book, will be updated on the Hub and on individual pubs’ websites over the coming days.

Marking this important first step towards June 21 when all restrictions are lifted, Greene King chief executive Nick Mackenzie said: “It’s great that we can finally open outdoor areas in some of our pubs after such a long period of lockdown and we can’t wait to start welcoming our customers back, safely.

“We look forward to May when we can open many more of our pubs, and the all-important return to normality in June when the restrictions are fully removed, and we can start to rebuild our businesses. Until then, we all have our fingers crossed for sunshine and warm temperatures in April!”
