Plan ahead for April 12th!

Event Date: 
March, 2021

Food Drink Devon is delighted that from 12th April our hospitality businesses will be reopening for al fresco dining and non-essential retail and self-catering accommodation will also restart. We have collated a list of all the places that are due to reopen, many of whom are now accepting bookings.

Please follow the government guidelines when making bookings for tables or accommodation - no more than six people or two households.  The NHS Trace and Track will be a legal requirement and everyone in your party will have to check into the venue on arrival, not just one member of your party. Failure to do so will mean a possible fine to the venue. If you don’t have the app you’ll each be required to sign in.

Reopening dates are subject to restrictions being eased on these dates and therefore are subject to change. 

Don't forget, there are plenty of places who are unable to offer outdoor seating but will continue to offer takeaways, click here to find out more.
