PUBS aren’t the only places opening in Bolton on Saturday - many cafes, restaurants, and bingo halls in Bolton are opening their doors to the public too and they also need your support.

Many pub goers have been counting down the days until their first pint of draught beer (and if you're one of them you can read our top 5 list here) but for others fancy doing something different this weekend.

If pubs aren’t for you, there are many other places you can visit in Bolton on Saturday - here are just five.

Pick a restaurant

It has been months since we have been able to sit down at a restaurant and enjoy a meal together.

If you do not want to head to your local pub, why not visit a Bolton restaurant instead?

They could use your support as this industry has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

Olympus Fish & Chips is one restaurant you can dine at in Bolton and they are opening up this Saturday.

In a Facebook post they wrote: “We are extremely pleased to say that we will be opening our doors to welcome everyone back on the 4th July.”

Mecca Bingo

You might have played virtual bingo during coronavirus lockdown but now the real thing is back and you can play it in Bolton.

Mecca made the exciting announcement on their Facebook page, writing: “This Saturday 4th July we reopen our doors and are looking forward to seeing you all again!”

However, the company is operating on a first come first served basis, with seating available for social bubbles, households and those attending alone.

Get your hair cut

Grown out roots and split ends have been a common sight during lockdown, with some people even attempting to cut and colour hair themselves.

Luckily, we can put the scissors down as the professionals are back on July 4th.

Salon 44 is just one Bolton hairdressers ready to re-open making the exciting announcement on Facebook.

Visit the farm

Smithills Open Farm is perfect for the family or groups of people who love animals.

It has been open since early June, allowing people to see cows, donkeys, snakes, meerkats, and many other animals.

However, activities such as animal handling, donkey rides, tractor rides and outdoor parks are unavailable.

The farm is open from 10-5pm.

Go to a Café

From July 4th, the government has said cafes can open so you can finally enjoy a fresh cup of coffee and a cake at the café itself.

Cafe Italia in Bolton is one business which will be opening on Saturday.

On their Facebook page, the café warned that tables are booking up fast so get in touch soon if you want to go.
