The best British pubs with HUGE gardens to socially distance outside with a pint

BRITS can head back to their favourite pub, with the lockdown ending in England yesterday.

However, this depends on what tier you are in – only tier 1 residents can socialise inside a pub outside of their household.

In tier 2, which the majority of the UK is, only households can socialise inside, but can mingle with up to six people outside of this if outdoors.

Tier 3 pubs are not allowed to reopen with guests, and can only offer takeaway service.

Pubs which have gardens have seen bookings for punters sell out – out of 47,000 pubs in the UK there are 27,000 with gardens, according to The British Beer & Pub Association.

There are also new rules which have to be followed across England – drinks can only be enjoyed if buying a 'substantial meal' (leading to the latest Scotch Egg debate over what constitutes a meal) and last orders are at 10pm, with pubs closing at 11pm.
