PUB landlords and residents across Dorset will be toasting the reopening of hundreds of premises today as the national lockdown eases.

Those with beer gardens, rooftops and outside seating are officially allowed to reopen to customers under Boris Johnson's lockdown roadmap.

In celebration of local independent pubs, the Echo has teamed up with CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) to bring you a list of opening dates - including pubs that are now open, and those who will welcoming patrons back later in the season.

Those without outside seating areas can start to reopen from May 17.

Here is the latest list in alphabetical order - published with thanks to CAMRA West Dorset (which also covers other areas of the county.)
