Information for pubs, bars, cafés and restaurants regarding outdoor licenses for drinking/eating in Wales.

As it currently stands only pubs, bars, cafés and restaurants in Wales with existing outdoor licenses are able to open outside areas for drinking/eating from Monday 13 July 2020, this is based on the government guidance for such operations.


The UK Government is proposing new legislation aimed at making it easier for pubs, bars, cafés and restaurants to trade in the open air but as yet this is not in place. If introduced we would have to consider the details of any new Welsh Government Regulations that apply before providing further advice.
