A spokesperson for Chew’s Yard said: “We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to our food and drink hall featuring a host of independent traders, our event space and our beautiful landscaped, garden courtyard. 

“We have gone all out to create a peaceful, green oasis in the city centre. As it is south-west facing, we will be able to enjoy the sunshine all afternoon and into the evening.

“We think that you and your family and friends (including furry ones!) will love eating and drinking outside when we open.”
