Those missing BrewDog bars can now book for them reopening.

The Scottish brewers BrewDog have announced that they are now taking bookings for the reopening of their bars.

With the roadmap out of lockdown set to be announced by Nicola Sturgeon and Boris Johnson in the coming days, BrewDog have revealed that they are taking bookings for their bars and are planning a reopening date of 2 May.

Posting on their site, the team behind the hugely popular beers and bars wrote: “We don’t know if we will be allowed to open, but rumour has it that we might able to in the summer.

“On that basis we decided to open up for reservations from the 2nd of May. So, we’ll take your booking in the hope that we can see you then. We can’t wait to have you back.

“As before, all of our bars have implemented new Covid-safe precautions, ensuring your visit is welcoming and enjoyable, whilst being safe for both our customers and crew.”

The website has tabs for booking a table in the various BrewDog bars in Scotland, England and Wales.

First minister Nicola Sturgeon will set out Scotland’s plans next week, with both her and Boris Johnson warning they will be lead by the data and not dates.

Ms Sturgeon confirmed on Tuesday 16 February that a “revised strategic framework” for easing coronavirus restrictions was in progress.

The first minister said the plan for leaving lockdown would be published next week, probably on Tuesday 23 February, following discussions with opposition parties, businesses and trade unions.

“It will aim to set out how we will use and balance all the tools at our disposal – restrictions and advice, vaccination, test and protect, and travel restrictions – to restore, on a phased basis, greater normality to our everyday lives,” Ms Sturgeon said.

Boris Johnson is likely to present England’s finalised plan to ministers on Monday (22 Feb) morning, the House of Commons at lunch time and then the nation in a televised press conference in the evening.
