The pub has remained closed since last year

The pub, on Vicarage Lane in Marton, has remained closed since December and didn't reopen on April 12 when lockdown restrictions were eased for businesses.

A spokesman for Greene King which runs the pub, said The Cherry Tree was 'just part of our next phase of pub reopenings' in which 105 others across the UK will open doors to punters.

The brewery said that customers are able to book a garden table online, although people are also welcome to visit the pub outdoors without an advance booking.

The pub will be open from 11am to 11pm, Monday to Sunday and will serve food until 10pm.

Following the announcement to reopen more pubs outside in England ahead of the bank holiday, Greene King chief executive Nick Mackenzie said: “We are really pleased to be able to reopen further pubs outdoors and welcome back more our customers in time for the bank holiday weekend.

“Sadly, we are still not able to open a larger amount of our estate in April, but we know the vital role pubs play in communities and feel it’s important to open as many as we can to help people get back together once again.

“We are still looking forward to Monday 17 May when we will be able to open many more of our pubs, and the all-important return to normality in June when the restrictions are fully removed, and we can start to rebuild our businesses. Until then, we hope for good weather for the bank holiday and onwards.”
