From Monday, April 12, as part of the Prime Minister's roadmap out of lockdown, outdoor dining at restaurants and pubs, and beer gardens are allowed to re-open.
One of the things we are all looking forward to is that first drink at the pub with our family and friends when lockdown eases.
From April 12, non-essential retail, hairdressers and public buildings can also open. Also outdoor settings like zoos and theme parks can welcome visitors. Indoor leisure like swimming pools and gyms can open. Funerals can continue with up to 30 people, and weddings up to 15 guests.

We asked them when they would be reopening - and here's what they said.
