Indoor dining will only be allowed after May 17, when Wagamama will look to reopen the remainder of its restaurants
Restaurants and pubs in Scotland will be able to open for outdoor drinking and dining from April 26, with four Wagamama sites reopening on that date.
It will mark a welcome step for restaurants with outdoor space after the sector was forced to close to everything except takeaway orders since the third lockdown began at the beginning of the year.
From April 12, diners will be able to meet in a group of up to six people from different households, while a maximum of two households can meet to form a group of any size.
Indoor dining will only be allowed after May 17, when Wagamama will look to reopen the remainder of its restaurants.
A Wagamama spokesman said: “We’re excited to begin this first stage of reopening to our guests.”
“Our outdoor dining experience offers guests the same great Wagamama experience whilst complying with coronavirus safety regulations, ensuring both guest and staff safety,” he added.
The group, which launched its biggest ever vegan range in January, will continue offering delivery and click and collect across its chain.
