With government regulations set to change on 4th July to allow the reopening of pubs and restaurants, we’ve looked into which venues in borough of Kettering are planning on opening, and when.
You’ll find that each venue has introduced new measures to ensure that they open safely for customers and staff whilst maintaining social distancing. Some of these changes include table booking only, limited numbers per table, more spaced out and outdoor seating, limited opening times, hand sanitisation stations and more. We’ve included links to their social media pages with more detail on the changes each pub will be making. If you’re planning a trip to a pub or restaurant now make sure you follow the latest Government guidance to stay safe www.gov.uk/coronavirus
If you are aware of any changes to the information below, or have details for any places we have missed, please let us know by messaging our This is Kettering facebook page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
