  6. Independent pub woes for Bradford as venues wait to open

    Many independent pubs in the Bradford area won't open until rules are further relaxed next month, according to the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).

    Drinks in a beer garden

    Since 12 April, outdoor hospitality venues have been allowed to reopen, with pubs using beer gardens or converting their car parks to create seated space for customers.

    Rules for customers include being seated when ordering, eating or drinking, and you must follow either the rule of six, or be in a a group of any size with no more than two households present.

    For some businesses this has led to needing extra staff for table service and limited space which means they can't make a profit, Camra said.

    Restrictions could change on 17 May to allow customers to eat and drink indoors, providing coronavirus goals are met.

    Peter Down, chairman of Camra in Bradford, said some larger, chain businesses have benefited from changes to the VAT rate, including a temporary 15% saving on food sales.

    "They already have not been working on the same playing field as the bigger pub companies.

    "A lot of the smaller pubs primarily serve drinks, they do not tend to offer that much in the way of food. As a result, they have not been benefiting from the 5% VAT on the sales of food."
