The pub chain will be able to welcome customers back inside their premises from April 26, but strict new rules to help combat the spread of Covid-19 mean alcohol can only be consumed outdoors until 10pm.

Customers, however, will be able to enjoy a meal indoors with non-alcoholic drinks.

Wetherspoon confirmed they won't be taking bookings, so punters will have to turn up on the day and possibly queue for a table.

Helen Dumbreck, the company’s regional manager for Scotland, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming both customers and staff back to our pubs.

“Our pubs play an important part in the social life of their respective towns and cities and it is great news that they will be able to reopen soon.

“Each of our pubs will observe all the necessary safety rules around Covid-19.”

A further easing of Covid-19 restrictions is scheduled for May 17, when Scotland’s bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes can open until 10.30pm, with alcohol permitted and “2 hour time-limited slots”.
