On June 23 the Prime Minister announced that pubs and restaurants can reopen and the two-metre social distancing rule can be reduced to one metre.

Of the 45 bars on our list, 20 are to remain cautious by staying closed for this weekend at least.

The other 25 are using a variety of precautions including PPE, screens, one-way systems, table service, ordering through apps, taking details for track and trace, card only, limiting customer numbers and hand sanitising stations. Measures vary from pub to pub.
