THE Waterside has unveiled its new heated huts which will allow family and friends to meet at the pub restaurant under the rule of six.

Pubs that serve food will reopen from tomorrow, Wednesday, under Warrington's new tier 2 rules.

Warrington Guardian:

But the restrictions do not allow different households to mix indoors which is why The Waterside owner Greene King has invested in four heated huts and two undercover heated areas for al fresco winter dining.

The huts and remodelling of the outside space at the Centre Park pub restaurant took around two weeks.

Warrington Guardian:

Amanda Crilly, who runs The Waterside with her husband Daniel, said: "The team and I are very reassured that the company are still investing in the pub at this time.

"Greene King have been amazing and 'pub safe' is at the heart of everything we do – reinventing what we do and how we serve people in safe ways to help going forward.

Warrington Guardian:

"Guest and team safety is paramount as is the need for people to meet safely with their close friends or family in the ways set out in the governments guidelines for each tier."

The all-weather huts are of a similar design to the ones at Chapelford Farm – another Greene King venue – and at both pubs you can order on the app and everything gets brought out.

Amanda added: "It's very easy to use and everything is brought to the guests' table. There are four heated huts that fit eight in each but obviously it's the rule of 6 at the moment. We have two under-cover heated areas outside now too.

"We are also hoping to install a small platform in the new year to have live acoustic acts when the weather heats up and things relax more."
