Outdoor Dining & Pub Gardens Open from 12th April in Northamptonshire

Can I get an amen? Outdoor dining is officially allowed from 12th April and Northamptonshire is getting ready!

I don’t know about you, but I have been MISSING visiting local cafes and restaurants to eat and drink! It’s definitely a social thing and I can’t wait to go and support the many businesses across Northamptonshire that have been closed for so long.

We may not be able to step inside, but from Monday 12th April, we will be allowed to sit in the outdoor dining areas that certain businesses have on site. 

This is better than nothing! We are finally gaining some normality back!

I’ve divided it in sections from West Northamptonshire (which consists of Brackley, Towcester, Northampton and Daventry from April 1st) and North Northamptonshire (Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby & East Northants).

So to celebrate, I’ve put together a list of places that are open for outdoor dining. Are you ready? Get your pens and paper, or phone notes out and start planning!
