Below are the pubs and bars that have confirmed they are opening their outside tables next month.

Now Si Pugsley, who runs Friars, is looking forward to welcoming people back to the newly refurbished courtyard from April 12.

Friars will operate more as a pub rather than the late night bar it has long been known as. A pizza menu is also being introduced.

"We have kept them on all way throughout the lockdowns and they can't wait to come back and that goes for the rest of our fantastic staff.

"During the first lockdown we totally refurbished the bar and our friends absolutely love the new look.

"We would just like to say to everyone stay safe and can't wait to welcome everyone back."

She said: "I became landlady in July 2020 so as of yet I’ve not been able to operate at full potential, so the roadmap is a very exciting time for myself and my team. 

"We have probably one of the biggest beer gardens in Warrington, and have four individual heated areas, along with two other covered areas in our courtyard, and additional seating at the front."

The pub also now serves Thai food.
