Pizza Express is the latest company to announce which of its eateries will be reopening for outdoor dining when some restrictions are lifted next month.

The chain is set to welcome back guests at 118 of its restaurants across the country for al fresco bookings - including two in Suffolk.

The Pizza Express restaurants in Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich (Regatta Quay) are due to open for outdoor dining from April 12 when the Government's roadmap out of lockdown will allow outdoor hospitality.

According to the company's website, while the Newmarket branch will not welcome back guests for outdoor dining at that time, it is expected it will reopen for diners indoors from May 17 when the next step out of lockdown is planned.

From that date, indoor dining will also be on the cards at the Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich branches too. Bookings can now be made via the Pizza Express website.

A statement on the Pizza Express website says: "From 12th April, selected England sites will be open for Outdoor dining. You’ll be able to book your table soon, so keep checking back.

"We are unable to control the great British weather, and due to restrictions, we will be unable to accommodate your booking inside of our restaurant, therefore, please consider this when making your booking."

It comes after the company announced that the Sudbury branch of Pizza Express would close in August last year, along with a second Ipswich site on Lloyds Avenue.

Pub chains Wetherspoon and Greene King, which is based in Bury St Edmunds, have in recent weeks also confirmed which of their branches will reopen for outdoor service from April 12.
