Birmingham is now on high alert as part of the government’s new COVID tier system – their latest way to assess the threat level of the virus from region-to-region in the UK. For now, Birmingham residents cannot legally mix indoors with households other than their own, including in hospitality, leisure, and retail establishments.
With that said, socialising outside is still allowed, even with people from different households, providing you keep to the rule of 6! That’s why we’ve put together a list of local hotspots – pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants – in Harborne that provide outside space for you to safely enjoy food and drinks with your loved ones.
Each business is doing their best to adjust to measures that are constantly changing, so please have patience and continue to work together as a community to stop the spread of COVID-19 by following social distancing rules. Check out our list below, and please let us know of any additions or changes that we need to make!
