The shopping centre said its covered space for customers eating and drinking outdoors had proved a big hit since April 12, when the lockdown rules were relaxed.

The two external seating areas are located next to the Oasis Dining Quarter and the High Street entrance, next to Argos.

Diners can choose from the menus of a whole host of cafes and restaurants, including Nando’s, Five Guys, Wagamama and YO! Sushi.

The Steel Foundry Wetherspoons has also opened an extended outdoor area for customers to enjoy seated dining in groups of up to six people or two households.

Darren Pearce, centre director at Meadowhall, said: “We’ve seen a big demand for outdoor dining from our visitors, which I’m sure was helped by the great weather we’ve had over the past couple of weeks. We’re also prepared for wetter days too, with many of our seats under cover.

“Our indoor dining offering will also reopen from May 17, pending the Government’s announcement, but we’re keeping our outdoor space open for the foreseeable as it’s been so popular.”

Tables in Meadowhall’s outdoor dining area are on a first-come-first-served basis, and there is no need to book.

Meadowhall is open from 10am-9pm Monday-Friday, 9am-8pm Saturday and 11am-5pm Sunday. Opening times for individual retailers may vary so visitors are encouraged to check directly before setting off.
