As fun as it has been trying to time the perfect moment for some al fresco dining and drinking whilst battling the elements of the Great British Weather! We know that you are probably just as excited as we are that restaurants, bars and cafes are able to open indoors from 17 May.

We’ve rounded up just a few that we think you should try. For more go to enjoyteesvalley.com/food-and-drink.
