More Greene King pubs will reopen around North West London as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

Further pubs located around Harrow, Wembley and Finchley are set to reopen outdoors from Thursday (April 29) ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

This includes The Torch just by Wembley Park station, the Royal Oak in Harrow and Five Bells in Finchley.

Across England there will be 106 additional branches reopened on top of the 452 Greene King pubs that reopened on April 12.

Customers are able to book a garden table online, although people are also welcome to visit the pub outdoors without an advance booking.

Some pubs will have reduced opening hours and menus, and this information along with how to book, will have been updated on individual pubs’ websites.

Greene King chief executive Nick Mackenzie said: “We are really pleased to be able to reopen further pubs outdoors and welcome back more our customers in time for the bank holiday weekend.

 “Sadly, we are still not able to open a larger amount of our estate in April, but we know the vital role pubs play in communities and feel it’s important to open as many as we can to help people get back together once again.

 “We are still looking forward to Monday 17 May when we will be able to open many more of our pubs, and the all-important return to normality in June when the restrictions are fully removed, and we can start to rebuild our businesses. Until then, we hope for good weather for the bank holiday and onwards!”
