As lockdown restrictions begin to be eased, real ale outlets are re-opening gradually.  The information shown below has been gathered via several sources but the situation remains fluid.  Opening hours in many cases continue to be limited and pre-booking may be required.  Selecting the outlet name will take you to the relevant Whatpub entry where you will find the necessary contact details.  This list was last updated on 11th August 2020
