Customers will be able to sit in the gardens of both pubs from April 12. the pub chain said.

It follows Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on February 22, that pubs and restaurants can open for outdoor service under plans to bring the country out of lockdown.

The Crowborough Cross and The George Hotel are among 394 Wetherspoons branches that have been given the green light to reopen.

Wetherspoons confirmed it will be offering a slightly reduced menu, to include breakfast, burgers, pizza, deli deals, fish and chips and British classics.

Customers will be able to order and pay through the Wetherspoon app, however, staff will be able to take orders and payment at the table from those who do not have the app.
