WELCOME BACK, NEWCASTLE: 45 pavement cafes have opened in Newcastle as lockdown eases

 

Welcome back Newcastle! 45 pavement cafes have now opened to welcome diners back safely.

The city of Newcastle has been working tirelessly to make sure restaurants, cafes and bars can welcome you back as safely as possible now that lockdown has eased. Part of the city's plans to jump start the economy and help things feel a little more like normal again include a pavement cafe initiative has seen 45 of your favourite venues expand their premises onto the pavements outside. We spoke to the head of public safety and regulation at Newcastle City Council Ed Foster to find out everything you need to know.

There will be regulations in place to reduce covid transmission and keep everybody safe. These rules will look similar to those in place last summer but there are some changes. The rule of 6, or two families together applies, and you must wait to be seated by a member of staff. Make sure you take a face covering with you as this will be required when using the restrooms, and in some cases as you are waiting to be seated. Keeping a distance of two meters or more is always advised.

There is no longer any rules around having to order a substantial meal to have an alcoholic drink. And now everyone in your party must scan the QR code or sign in.
