Nailsea unlocked - oh happy day
from Monday, April 12, 2021
Many of Nailsea's favourite pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants have opened for outdoor wining and dining - details of opening house can be found on our What's On page HERE.
Top are the beers on offer week one at Nailsea MicroPub which has extended opening hours on market day.
Two popular North Somerset restaurants have enjoyed successful re-openings following the easing of the current lockdown.
The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill and Bardolino Pizzeria, which are both located at Cadbury House in Congresbury, opened their doors to customers for al fresco dining on Monday, April 12, having been closed for over three months.
Restrictions have changed since December, when pubs were last open. People don't need to order a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks - and there is no 10pm curfew.
But there are still Covid measures in place at both pubs and restaurants:
Customers must order, eat and drink while seated at a table
You must follow either the rule of six, or be in a a group of any size with no more than two households present
Every customer aged 16 and over will have to check in to NHS test and trace, or give contact details to staff
When not seated - for example being shown to a table, or going to the toilet - customers should wear face masks (unless exempt) and observe social distancing
Some are waiting for
In England, it is hoped the next set of restrictions can be lifted in mid-May - if coronavirus goals are being met.
Monday, May 17: Customers can eat and drink indoors, in groups of up to six people, or two households of any size. Groups seated outside must be smaller than 30 people
Monday, June 21: All restrictions could be lifted, with nightclubs allowed to reopen
Swanning about at Backwell Lake

LAKE GROUNDS: On Sunday, April 19, the improvements funded by lake owner Wessex Water were nearly complete. The sloping path to the viewing platform was done only red tape blocked the steps which were drying out. We didn't go near the nesting swans or feed any of the wildfowls with bread which is a strict no-no as it pollutes the water and encourages the swans to come onto the grass to forage...there was a lot of algae on the shoreline
