Wagamama will welcome back diners in Newcastle on Monday - but they'll have to sit outside next to 'Hippy Green' at Old Eldon Square The Asian fusion restaurant chain has announced it will reopen 72 sites around England on Monday, for outdoor diners only, in addition to the existing click and collect takeaway service and delivery through Deliveroo. Wagamama in Eldon Square is among the restaurants which will welcome back diners on Monday. The tables will be outside the front of the restaurant, on Old Eldon Square, otherwise known as Hippy Green or Goth Green due to its history as a meeting place for youth subcultures. A Wagamama spokesman said: “We’re excited to begin this first stage of reopening to our guests.” “Our outdoor dining experience offers guests the same great Wagamama experience whilst complying with coronavirus safety regulations, ensuring both guest and staff safety,” he added. Diners will be able to eat in groups of six from different households, while a maximum of two households can meet to form a group of any size.
"There’s no need to book. our food is fresh and so is our service, which is why bookings are off the menu and why our team are experts at getting our guests seated safely with speed, " says Wagamama's website. "On arrival, if you can’t be seated immediately, you’ll be asked to wait in a short, socially distanced queue." Indoor dining will only be allowed after May 17, when Wagamama will look to reopen the remainder of its restaurants.
