THE roof garden of the Moon in the Square is one of four Wetherspoons beer gardens due to open from Monday April 12.

Customers will be allowed to enter the pub in Bournemouth Square to gain access to the outside area and to use the toilet.

The popular chain is also planning to open The Lord Wimborne in Lagland Street and The Quay, both in Poole, as well as The Blackwater Stream in Lower Blandford Road, Broadstone.

The Wetherspoon pubs will be open from 9am to 9pm from Sunday to Thursday and 9am to 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

They will offer a 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 but staff will be able to take orders and payment at the table from those who don’t have the app.

The pubs will not be operating a booking system.

Test and trace will be in operation and hand sanitisers will be available.

Terri Balloni, pub manager at The Moon in the Square, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming our customers and staff back after a long time away.”
