From 12th April 2021, Coronavirus lockdown rules have been relaxed and local shops, hairdressers and pubs and restaurants with gardens are now allowed to open their doors. In Horsham and the local villages, we have a wealth of lovely pubs with wonderful outdoor areas that are perfect for meeting up with friends and enjoying a meal out alfresco.
Take a look at our guide below, which details some of the local pubs that are offering outdoor dining from 12th April.
