The wait is over! After months of suffering with scruffy beards and dodgy results from DIY-home-haircuts, hair salons, barbers and other beauty services are finally re-opening in Wimbledon! Celebrate your fresh fade or bouncy blow-dry with a cool crisp pint or much-needed Sunday roast, with recent re-opening of restaurants, bars and pubs in Wimbledon too.
With social distancing measures in place and a slightly new way of working, businesses are delighted to have returned to our lovely town and have received a great reception – albeit from those with hungry stomachs, overgrowing hair and gasping for a pint!
Gyms and leisure services will be re-opening from 25th July, so you no longer have to rely on that ever-dropping internet connection for virtual classes.
With the recent government announcement of face masks being mandatory in shops, Wimbledon has you covered (no pun intended). Whatever your style – whether it’s funky or fresh, practical or bold, there is an array of affordable and breathable face masks to choose from at Quality Stitch, our pharmacies and supermarkets, and even at our Local Market on The Piazza.
Please note that as these businesses continue to adapt to the new normal, opening hours may be reduced and subject to changes.
Patio Season Is Officially Open!
Many bars, restaurants and pubs are open for dining in and have also developed lovely socially-distanced settings for alfresco dining, so if you prefer to enjoy the summer sun while you tuck into your mouth-watering meal, you can do so safely and comfortably.
Some of venues which have recently re-opened for outdoor dining include Bill’s, Wahaca, 601 Queen’s Road and Al Forno, whilst those open for dining-in include Grilandia, Itsu, Prince of Wales, and Sticks’n’Sushi.
Some eateries require advanced booking, with orders to be placed via apps, so ensure that you reserve your place now!
Given the recent government announcement of the Eat Out To Help Out Scheme, soon you can also get 50% off food and drink in some of our selected eateries (with a value of up to £10). Please check our social media channels for updates.
