After months of continuously being shut due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, the Coronavirus pandemic has been hard hitting for many business owners. Pub owners are finally beginning to prepare following the recent roadmap announcement. The four step process identifies the different stages that are hoping to be taken to get us back to a state of normality, although each stage is dependent on the situation nearer the time. As of the 12th of April 2021, the current plan is for hospitality venues to be able to operate on an outdoors only basis with no curfew and substantial meal restriction as we have seen previously.
Adapt with the Addition of a Beer Garden Shelter
For many establishments, outdoor space is limited or non-existent and may cause them to struggle to meet these guidelines and push back their opening time. With some time to prepare, many pub owners are looking into ways to utilise their outdoor space with the addition of beer garden awnings. For pub owners who did not tend to offer much outdoor seating prior to Covid-19, now is the time to get the gardening equipment out and create a welcoming space to be enjoyed by many.
When customers are unable to be seated within your venue or socialise at the bar, taking time to best make use of your pub garden in line with social distancing will allow you to get back into some kind of normality, with friends and families being able to enjoy a well earnt drink or tasty meal in the cosy surroundings. Beer garden awnings can be used on either the front or the back of your property, creating a convenient smoking area, shaded seating area or even just a space to queue away from the rain.
As ever, the great British weather is vastly unpredictable and any rain showers can have a big impact on your day of trade. Beer garden awnings are a great enticement for your customers all year round as they can stay dry under your pub awning in the rain as well as shaded during any hot spells. In addition to the practical side, providing beer garden shelter can really add to the ambiance of the place, giving you the opportunity to portray your branding and even highlight any promotional messaging to those out in the garden.
