In less than a month, a partial sense of normality will be welcomed back into all of our lives in the form of pub gardens.
As long as the road map is still going to plan, from April 12, beer gardens will be allowed to reopen.
And the rule of six will be in place, so we can finally have a pint with our friends after months of lockdown restrictions.
Across Northamptonshire, 11 Marston' s beer gardens are preparing to reopen on April 12 and welcome customers back to their, hopefully, sunny gardens.
The pub chain has been working on adapting food and drink offers to cater for the outdoor-only restrictions. There is also an online order system in place whereby customers will need to order food and drink via the 'Marston's Tap' page.
For the time being, there are a number of Marston's pubs across the county, which will remain closed due to limited or no outdoor areas, including The Brave Old Oak in Towcester, The Heart of England in Weedon, The Paisley Pear in Brackley, The Park House in Kettering and The Queen of Hearts in Daventry.
Below are the 11 Marston's pub gardens across the county that will reopen next month... Now let's hope for some good weather!
