London’s Restaurants Might Reopen When National Restrictions End On December 2nd
National restrictions are to be replaced by a new tier system from December 2nd, but we still don’t know if London’s restaurants will reopen.

The Prime Minister announced today that national restrictions will come to an end on December 2nd. Following four weeks of closures, the government’s new Covid-19 Winter Plan will see England return to a regional tiered approach, with hospitality venues permitted to reopen in regions under Tier 1 and Tier 2 restrictions.

Here are all the details announced to parliament, as far as we could make them out:

  • From December 2nd a three-tiered system will replace the current blanket closures.
  • Tier 1 - hospitality venues may reopen to dine-in service.
  • Tier 2 - restaurants, cafés, pubs, and bars may open but alcohol can only be served with “substantial meals”.
  • Tier 3 - all venues to remain closed except for takeaway and collection.
  • The 10pm curfew introduced in September will be replaced by a new rule. Venues will be permitted to stay open till 11pm, however last orders must be made by 10pm.

The tiers are to be tougher than those announced in October, although as they relate to hospitality venues, they are broadly the same, with the ‘rule of six’ (allowing people to mix with people outside of their households or bubbles) applying both outdoors and indoors under Tier 1, but outdoors only under Tier 2 restrictions.

We await further announcements (expected this Thursday) detailing which of England’s regions are set to be in which tiers from December 2nd.

We’ll bring you more updates as we get them. In the meantime, if you have any questions, email us at london@theinfatuation.com.
