Wetherspoons pubs are open – rules customers will have to follow while drinking

Pubs are opening across England, great news for fans of a drink. However, pubs have rules in place to ensure people stay safe from the threat of coronavirus.

Wetherspoon chairman, Tim Martin, said: “We are extremely pleased that pubs are reopening on July 4 after a long hiatus.”

Customers will be asked to leave their contact details as part of the NHS’s Test and Trace initiative.

A spokesman told Mirror Money: “Wetherspoon will introduce NHS Test and Trace in all its pubs in England from reopening on Saturday, July 4.

“Wetherspoon is to ask customers to fill out a short form, each time they visit, which contains their name and telephone number.

Smoking near door ways is prohibited.

Smokers will need to step further away, or go to smoking areas where they will need to remember to social distance.

Yesterday Wetherspoons opened 750 pubs across England – but not in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. 

On Friday Greggs opened the majority of its restaurants. 

A Greggs spokesperson said: “Following the successful reopening of 800 shops in mid-June, we have now moved to the next phase.

“As of today, the majority of our owned estate shops will have reopened nationwide offering a takeaway-only service.”
