Which Sunderland seafront bars in Roker and Seaburn will reopen on Saturday July 4
Pubs and bars are among the businesses which can legally open again from Saturday, July 4. We’ve compiled a list of bars in and around Sunderland’s sea front, and what their plans are for the big day.
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 12 bars on our list, a definite four are to remain cautious by staying closed for this weekend at least.
The other eight will use 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.
Customers are strongly advised to check for details on the bars they intend to visit before setting off.
