With the lockdown rules easing next week to allow us to meet up in groups of six, or two households, to enjoy al fresco drinking and dining, we took a look at some of the Harrogate bars and pubs which will be opening their outdoor spaces from Monday, April 12, when the rules change and through the rest of that week. Where will you be going first?
