    Boris hints that restaurants and pubs may open sooner than July, and the 2m rule is being reviewed

    The rules around the relaxing of the lockdown have been somewhat vague, as anyone who's been to Barnard Castle knows. Until yesterday, while restaurants were open for delivery, we knew that they wouldn't be opening up for diners until 4 July at the earliest. There was also no solid information about pub openings. Yesterday, that changed thanks to Boris Johnson's appearance at

    The good news is that Padella is going to be doing pasta deliveries from this weekend. The bad news is that, to begin with, you have to be in either Hackney or Islington to avail yourself of the service.
