ASK Italian to open 41 out of 65 restaurants on April 12 – see the full list

ASK Italian plans to reopen a majority of its restaurants for al fresco dining on April 12.

Italian food fans will be able to visit 45 out of ASK Italian's 65 UK branches – but you can't sit inside to eat your meal.

It comes as Boris Johnson this week revealed that restaurants can serve customers outside from mid-April under the roadmap out of lockdown.

Customers will then be able to sit inside to eat and drink from May 17.

We've listed the full list of branches ASK Italian hopes to reopen for outdoor dining in April below.

However, the chain told The Sun things could change ahead of April so keep an eye on ASK Italian's website, which will be updated next week.

It's also yet to confirm its opening hours, so we'll update this article once we hear back.

You can find your nearest ASK Italian branch by using its restaurant locator tool.

The chain said it's had "early signs" of customers wanting to book, so it could be worth acting quick once it starts to accept bookings.

The reopening plans come as Byron has revealed it'll reopen 17 restaurants for outdoor dining on April 12 – check out the full list of branches.

Some restaurants will also have Brooklyn bars, so hungry diners can enjoy booze with their meal.

If you’re planning on taking a trip to your local pub or favourite restaurant on April 12, there will be some rules you’ll need to follow.

Like before, pubs and restaurants will have to offer table service and face masks must be worn by staff and customers when not sat at a table.

You won’t be able to sit inside, but pubs will now be allowed to offer takeaway pints, something which was banned during lockdown.

The government has also scrapped the 10pm curfew and punters won't have to buy a "substantial meal" when they order an alcoholic drink.
