12th Apr 2021 - 08:11
Ahead of the reopening of hospitality today (12 April), trade bodies have published a one-page guide of the key rules that licensees need to know.

UKHospitality (UKH), the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) and the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII) created the one-page document, which can be accessed here

Key points from the one-page guide include:

  • Social distancing applies between groups of customers (not within groups sitting at tables).
  • Payment is permitted at the bar, as a last resort if payment cannot be taken outside.
  • Test and trace contact details have to be taken for all customers eating and drinking outside at a venue.

A spokesperson for the trade associations, said: “Reopening of pubs and other hospitality businesses outdoors is a step forward for the full reopening of our sector.

“Safety of our staff and customers remains our top priority – as is consistent interpretation of the new rules. By referring to this handy checklist, hospitality operators can ensure they are taking the right steps to reopen outdoors.”
