PRIME Minister Boris Johnson announced earlier this week his roadmap out of lockdown.

One of the measures mentioned was being able to return to socialising at outdoor beer gardens from April 12.

East Lancashire boasts some of the most stunning views from their beer gardens at pubs and restaurants.

Some of them are dog and family friendly so keep your fingers crossed that we get some good weather to socially distance and enjoy the great outdoors with your favourite tipple.

So we have put together a list of beer gardens that in times gone by you may have enjoyed .

Butler Arms in Pleasington,

Overlooking the bowling green, you’ll find The Terrace. With high wooden trusses, beautifully selected foliage and comfortable seating it brings a bit of the Med to the region.

Lancashire Telegraph:

There’s an outside bar, fire pit and ice bucket tables, plus festoon lighting to keep you comfortable on almost any summer evening. If you’re feeling the chill, grab a blanket and snuggle down.

Aspinall Arms in Mitton,

The Aspinall Arms is a coaching inn believed to date from the 17th century, and was originally known as the Mitton Boat.

Lancashire Telegraph:

With terraced and landscaped gardens outside, and flagged floors and open fires inside, it's just the pub for walkers, cyclists and anglers to mingle and dine alongside the friendly locals.

Inn at Whitewell near Clitheroe,

This Inn has some royal connection as it forms part of the Duchy of Lancaster Estate. It sits high on the banks of the River Hodder, where it is hoped it will remain, with spectacular views down the valley into the heart of the Forest of Bowland.

When visitors comment on Trip Advisor about this one as having some "Excellent service and superb beer and pub food.. Friendly atmosphere and well maintained establishment" it makes you want to visit it.

Game Cock Inn, Great Harwood

It has some breath-taking views of the countryside from the beer garden at the back.

Park Inn in Accrington,

It is a great real Ale Pub but massive selection of beers, wines, spirits, and a great beer garden on summers days

The Dog Inn at Belthorn

The pub has some great views all the way to Blackpool Tower and beyond from the terrace out the back.

Others that our readers told us previously include Hare and Hounds in Burnley which has stunning, far-reaching views while the Swan with Two Necks, Pendleton was worthy of a mention as well as Spread Eagle at Mellor.

Are there any other ones are worthy of a mention that you can't wait to get back to. Post them in the comments below
