WITH pubs across the borough getting set to welcome back customers for outdoor table service from Monday (April 12), we've compiled a list of all those set to re-open.

Stourbridge and Halesowen CAMRA branch have kindly been finding out which pubs will and won't be opening as lockdown measures ease from next week to enable pubgoers once again to enjoy a pint in a beer garden.

A spokesman for the branch said his first visits would likely be to The Swan in Long Lane and the Bell & Bear in Gorsty Hill, Halesowen, and he told the News: "CAMRA members can't wait to revisit their favourite local pubs and to cautiously and irreversibly raise a pint of draught real ale to their lips.

"The local CAMRA branch encourages their members and everyone else to return to their local pubs in a responsible way, adhering to all the necessary restrictions...and wrapping up warm."
