Pubs can reopen from 6am as punters prepare for ‘Super Saturday’

Downing Street have confirmed that pubs can reopen from 6am on Saturday morning for the first time in three months.

This announcement comes to prevent landlords in attempting “to try to open at midnight,” on Friday preventing all-night parties.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said on Friday, “It’s not part of the regulations, as I understand it.

“Pubs, and restaurants in particular, as I’m sure lots of us will know, do sometimes put limits on the amount of time you can have a table for, for example.”

Downing Street also confirmed that pubs, bars and restaurants do not have to limit the amount of time people spend inside venues.

Hours earlier Boris Johnson pleaded with drinkers to be “sensible” hours before this latest announcement.

Speaking on LBC Radio Johnson rejected any idea that opening pubs on what has been dubbed “Super Saturday” is a recipe for trouble.

He told LBC host Nick Ferrari, “Tomorrow [Saturday] we come to step three of the plan that I set out on May 10, that everybody, I think, has understood, or huge numbers of people have understood and followed very carefully and very closely.

“And it’s because people stuck to that plan that we’re now able to carefully and cautiously open up hospitality tomorrow.

“And my message is really for people to enjoy summer sensibly and make sure that it all works.”
