The pandemic has brought lots of change to all our lives and across many businesses in the tourism sector.  One area that has successfully emerged is a new fashion for outdoor dining.  Alfresco dining is extremely popular across the continent where most restaurants, cafes and bars offer outdoor seating for you to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather, good food and great company.   This has become increasingly popular here in the UK, as we head for the relative safety of outdoors, and businesses across the South develop new outdoor spaces for us to enjoy a great outdoor dining experience in, no matter what the weather.  As we prepare for hopefully another scorching summer in the South East, there is a host of new and exciting places to enjoy alfresco dining.
