As part of the government’s road map out of lockdown, groups of up to six people or two households can now enjoy outdoor table service at pubs after lockdown restrictions were eased yesterday.

Pubs across Portsmouth and the surrounding towns have since opened their outdoor spaces as business resumes.

The list of reopened venues includes those part of pub groups Stonegate, Fuller’s, JD Wetherspoon, and Greene King, as well as independently owned pubs across the area.

Many pubs are operating a booking system and advise potential customers to check their website, Facebook page, or phoning ahead to ensure service.

Paul Taylor, landlord of the Rose in June on Milton Road, Kingston, said: ‘I’m absolutely buzzing and am really looking forward to it.

‘As long as everyone is sensible there won’t be a problem. It will be a difficult one to police but we will have fun doing it.’

Tom Yaman, owner of the Duke of Devonshire on Albert Road, said: ‘It’s been five months for us since we’ve been able to open as we don’t do food.

‘It’s been a long time. I’m excited to be able to reopen.

‘All our customers are looking forward to coming back.’
