Both the Wetherspoon pubs in the Great Yarmouth borough are opening their beer gardens from Monday April 12 as the easing of restrictions reaches the next milestone stage.
The Troll Cart in Regent Road, Great Yarmouth, and The William Adams in High Street, Gorleston, will be open from 9am to 9pm (Sunday to Thursday inclusive) and 9am to 10pm (Friday and Saturday).
They will offer a slightly reduced menu, to include breakfast, burgers, pizza, deli deals, fish and chips and British classics.
Food will be available from 9am to 8pm seven days a week.
Customers will be able to order and pay through the Wetherspoon app, however, staff will be able to take orders and payment at the table from those who don’t have it.
The pubs will not be operating a booking system.
Customers will be able to enter the pubs to gain access to the outside area and also to use the toilet.

Todd Inns, pub manager at The Troll Cart, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming our customers and staff back after a long time away.”
Not all of the chain's pubs have outside space and some will be forced to stay shut until May 17 under the government's lockdown easing roadmap.
Of the 745 sites JD Wetherspoon’s has in England, it is only opening those (394) that have enough outdoor space to make it financially viable to start welcoming customers back on Monday.
Pubs and restaurants have been completely shut down during the third lockdown, imposed in early January to contain the second wave of coronavirus infections.
