2 Weeks to go! Outdoor Wirral Restaurants and Pubs You Should Visit
In January, the government announced what it hopes to be the final COVID lockdown in the UK. Your favourite Restaurants, Pubs and Beer Gardens temporarily closed their doors once again to protect their communities. Lockdown has affected everyone and every business – especially your independent Wirral businesses. Catering and hospitality have been amongst the hardest hit, and we are keen to do all we can to support them as they re-open (as we’re sure you are too!).
As you may have heard, lockdown is lifting soon! On April 12th, the measures will ease to allow your favourite restaurants near you to finally open their kitchens again, provided they have outdoor seating. Soon, we’ll be able to go out with friends and loved ones, enjoy a meal with our families after a great day out, or enjoy a cold drink in the warm summer sun!
Family friendly restaurants are dotted all over the Wirral – you won’t have to look far to find a great meal for you and your family! Some of our partners we’re supporting, opening from April 12th are below. And you can find the full list of partnered businesses here!
