Reopening of the restaurant-bar group on April 12 Lowestoft


A group of pubs and restaurants are making last-minute preparations as they prepare to reopen their popular spots.

As the country takes another step on the road to normality on Monday April 12 with the reopening of non-essential stores, pubs and restaurants are also expected to open outside.

Moss and Co staff have been working hard behind the scenes since the last orders were temporarily called – and they are now set to reopen their outdoor gardens at places they pass through in the region.

The Moss and Co group runs The Angel Inn in Wangford, The Bell Inn in Carlton Colville, The Commodore in Oulton Broad, The Jolly Sailors in Pakefield, The Village Maid in Lound and The Waveney in Oulton Broad.

With five sites set to reopen next week, the doors of three of its sites will reopen on Monday.

“The Angel Inn at Wangford will open on weekends – 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – while The Waveney at Oulton Broad will open 4:00 p.m. until late Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Sunday.

“Of course with this race up to Stage 3 – which is no earlier than May 17th – we have to rely on the UK weather.

“Everyone worked really hard to get everything ready – from the painting of the benches and tables to the chefs preparing and preparing the menus.

“We can’t wait to be there, and May will make a huge difference.

“This is something that everyone misses so much. “

Mr Rogers said the group had made “significant investments” to make more tables available at all venues.

“The Commodore has 80 extra tables outside now, we’ve made extra space available at The Jolly Sailors for another 10 tables and at the Village Maid – which will reopen on May 17th – we’ve done the entire gardens area.

“At the Bell Inn, we have made a great investment in building a new patio area that is perfect for alfresco dining.”
