The Rake in Borough Market is ramping up its safety measures ahead of reopening in April, writes Simon Throssell…

Based off Winchester Walk, the Rake is known for its ‘impressively large’ beer selection while having a ‘famously small’ seating area.

Being inside Borough Market, punters will be able to have a drink of craft beer on the bar’s patch of decking

The outdoor heaters and covered area will keep their customers dry during the April showers.

Manager George is yet to make up his mind about the Prime Minister’s roadmap, saying: “The plan sounds reasonable but I’m waiting for the fine print.”

While customers are more than welcome to share a drink, it is important to adhere by the regulations.

“We were flooded with groups of people from London and further out when we reopened in July,” he explained.

“Reopening in April therefore seems a little daunting.”
