You might want to be quick though, as people on social media are suggesting that tables are booking up fast.

Karla tweeted: "Can’t believe how fast Miller and Carter has booked up".

And Charlotte added: "We’ve booked Miller & Carter! We tried to go for next weekend but it was fully booked completely so we’ve had to go for the weekend after AND the one in Poulton"

All three restaurants are all owned by Mitchells and Butlers, who also run several pub chains including All Bar One and Nicholson's.

All the brands under the Mitchells and Butlers arms will be opening in England on July 4.


They are currently only planning to open in England because Boris Johnson announced the date at which lockdown restrictions would be eased earlier this week.

But today, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that beer gardens may open from July 6 and indoor restaurants can go back into business from July 15.

That means the pub chains may start thinking about opening in Scotland soon too.

The rules for Wales and Northern Ireland are still unclear, so we don't yet know when pubs will be able to open there.

The chains said that because suppliers are still gearing back up after lockdown, some ingredients and dishes may not be available.

ALL the brands run by Mitchells and Butlers will be ready to open in England on July 4. Here's the full list:

  • ALEX

They also warned that in the short-term, descriptions on menus may not always accurately reflect the contents of a dish.

Mitchells and Butlers is therefore asking that any customers with dietary requirements speak to a team member before placing an order in any of the brands it owns.

You can use the 'find a pub' section the group's website to find a specific pub or restaurant near you.

Mitchells and Butlers have said that the news that England will be moving to one metre distancing will make opening much easier.

But the group was keen to reassure customers that it is taking its health measures seriously.

A spokesperson said: "We’re taking great care to make sure that the safety and wellbeing of our guests and colleagues remains at the very forefront of all of our re-opening preparations from the July 4.

"Given the different sizes and shapes of our businesses the one metre plus guidelines will allow us to more effectively plan how we will operate our popular bars, pubs and restaurants.”
