Re-Opening On May 17th

We are delighted our restaurants, bars and cafes will finally be allowed to fully reopen from May 17.

Along with other industry organisations we had been lobbying the government for earlier reopening but, unfortunately, they were not prepared to bring the date forward.

We know it has been a terrible time for the hospitality industry, so we want to work with you to help you bounce back and attract more customers now that restrictions are finally easing.

We have some big events coming up, so expect footfall to gradually increase during the summer with lots of Staycation visitors coming in from their holiday bases in Devon and Cornwall.

So, please let us know if you have any news, information or offers that you would like us to publicise to attract customers to your business, Please email details to and include a good quality image if you can.

Please remember COVID restrictions still apply as follows:
