Restaurants are now able to serve customers outdoors as part of the Government's four-step roadmap to easing lockdown restrictions in England.

From May 17, diners can be served indoors, and the Government hopes to lift almost all lockdown restrictions from June 21. 

People will only be able to meet up in groups of six or as two households when visiting a restaurant from Monday, and the opening only extends to outdoor areas.

Current rules to order a substantial meal alongside an alcoholic drink will be scrapped and there will be no Government requirement for a curfew. Customers will have to order, eat and drink while seated outside and if people are being shown to a table or using the toilet, they will need to wear a mask. 

Here are just some of the North Somerset restaurants which have already or will open their doors later this week.
