Pubs, owned by Stonegate Group in March and Ely, have outlined plans to reopen on Monday, May 17 after being forced shut due to Covid-19.
Each pub, including Ye Olde Griffin Hotel in March and The Kings Arms, Minster Tavern and The Hereward in Ely, has ensured it complies with covid-secure guidance.
A spokesperson for Stonegate Group said: “We are looking forward to welcoming people back through our doors on May 17.
“Our priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our teams and customers, whilst ensuring everyone is able to enjoy and make the most out of their long-awaited visit to our venues.”
The pubs have installed external signage, clearly setting out the safety measures in place.
