From Monday we will finally be able to enjoy a nice meal and a pint as pubs across Wales prepare to reopen its doors for the first time this year.

However, not every hospitality venue will be able to reopen just yet as only those who can offer outdoor hospitality will be allowed to open from April 26.

Up to six friends from six households will be allowed to book a table together at an outdoor hospitality venue. You can find out the rules on visiting pubs here.

Greene King, one of the biggest pub chains in the UK, have confirmed the 12 pubs which will reopen in Wales next week with pubs in Cardiff and Swansea on the list.

The pubs that will reopen are:

Some pubs will have reduced opening hours and menus and this information, along with how to book, will be updated on the Hub and on individual pubs’ websites over the coming days.

Greene King chief executive Nick Mackenzie said: “We’re excited to be able to reopen outdoor spaces at just under half of our managed pubs in Wales and can’t wait to welcome our customers back safely to enjoy a pint in a beer garden.

“Sadly, the majority of our pubs in Wales won’t be able to reopen in April as they either don’t have outdoor space or there is no prospect of them being viable, but we know the vital role pubs play in communities and feel it’s important to open as many as we can to help people get back together once again.

“We look forward to more information being announced on the reopening plans for indoor hospitality, and with England planning a return to normality in June when the restrictions are fully removed, we hope that a similar lifting of restrictions can also take place in Wales over the summer to allow businesses to rebuild. Until then, here’s hoping the weather in May is kind and allows plenty of opportunities to visit a pub garden.”

Customers are encouraged to guarantee their place in a Greene King pub garden by booking online or by calling their local pub directly to ensure they don’t miss out.

As well as Greene King, Brains have also announced the 131 pubs that will be reopening. You can find the full list of Brains and Marston's pubs reopening in Wales here.
