After weeks of lockdown and isolation, we are now allowed to dine out in public. Across the state, restaurants, cafés, and bars (with dining) can have 10 customers dining in, at any one time. As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the local hospitality industry and, because of this, not all our favourite restaurants, cafés and bars will be able to open. But, this is a small step towards normality.
To help you find somewhere to dine this weekend, we have rounded up some of the best restaurants, bars and cafés in the Inner City that have opened their doors for trade. If you can't get out and about, we hope that you can do your bit to support your fave local businesses by ordering takeaway or home delivery.
