Here are just some of the pubs and restaurants preparing to reopen in Suffolk for al fresco drinking and dining on April 12 - so you can get ahead and prepare for your visit. 

On Monday, the Government announced the news we have all been waiting for - that pubs and restaurants can reopen their outdoor spaces from April 12.

This might mean missing out on the Easter trade; however, the hospitality industry has welcomed the news and is preparing to reopen its garden spaces from no earlier than April 12.

If cases continue to decline, the hospitality sector will be able to reopen from May 17.

The controversial 10pm curfew, along with having to buy a 'substantial meal', have both been scrapped from the Government's new plans. But the 'rule of six' and social distancing measures will still apply.
