Pavement dining for pubs, restaurants and cafes to make the most of 'Brexit freedoms'

Take that, Remoaners! The UK will be the only country in Europe that allows people to sit and dine outside their cafes and pubs!

Pavement dining will become a 'permanent feature of the high street' under plans to cut red tape and make the most of 'Brexit freedoms'.

Kemi Badenoch yesterday announced a package of reforms to boost businesses.

Plans unveiled by the Business Secretary include proposals to remove regulations that make it hard for pubs, restaurants and cafes to get permission to serve customers outside.

Pubs could also be given the automatic right to sell takeaway pints. Temporary allowances were granted during the pandemic but are due to expire next year.

Yesterday's package will also loosen some regulations on gambling, including allowing bingo halls to install fruit machines.

Al fresco dining is common in a lot of countries. I always thought the UK had it also.

The rest of Europe is well ahead of the UK in this regard lol.

It does, but you see it more with cafes than you do with larger restaurants/pubs.

It's the weather, Susie. No one wants to sit out in the cold and wet here!

A lot of restaurants in my area have outdoor dining in the summer when people enjoy being outdoors.

Same here. In my neighbourhood they line both sides of the street.

I'm literally sat outside a restaurant in London between courses as I read this....

Leavers really stretching for those imaginary benefits it seems.
