Two thirds of English pubs will stay closed with two metre distancing

British pub

Unless the government reduces social distancing from two metres to one, 25,000 thousand English pubs, or two thirds of the overall total, will be forced to stay closed with no hope of reopening, according to the BBPA. It said under the existing guidelines, only one third, or 12,500 pubs, will be able to reopen. If the guidelines were reduced to one metre, 75%, or 28,000 of England’s pubs would be able to re-open.
