Several pubs, bars and restaurants in West Kirby, Hoylake and Meols are set to reopen their outdoor space starting from Monday 12 April.

The latest stage in the government’s lifting of Covid-19 restrictions means that outdoor hospitality is allowed from this date.

The rule of six – or members of up to two households – applies, but you won’t have to order a ‘substantial meal’ with alcoholic drinks, and the 10pm curfew has been scrapped.

These are the places we know are opening up their outside dining and drinking areas.

You may want to check table availability before you visit to make sure you don’t have a wasted trip.
