Its less than two weeks until pubs and restaurants can finally reopen their doors (well, their beer garden gates) to offer outdoor drinks and dining.

The long-awaited date of April 12 will soon be among us, so here are five pubs and restaurants that are set to reopen in Bromsgrove.

The Nailers Arms, Doctors Hill, Bromsgrove  

The family run "Contemporary Carvery & Grill" are to re-open and trade outside from their front bar terrace with reduced hours. Every Friday and Saturday evening they plan to have a BBQ from 6pm until 9pm.

During lockdown, the grill has been offering ‘ring a roast’ Sunday carveries for people to collect.
