Where you can and can’t dine out in Ipswich

MANY residents are itching to explore their dining out options as restrictions ease, but the Premier's road map isn't exactly viable for everyone.

Stage One of the State Government's COVID-safe road map will allow dining in at restaurants, pubs, clubs, RSLs and cafes for a maximum of 10 patrons at one time as part of a gradual reopening.

This stage will begin from 11:59pm Friday, 15 May.

Stage Two, which will start 11:59pm Friday, 12 June, will see the patron limit increase to 20 customers and an option for more with an approved COVID-safe plan.

Stage Three would see a build to 100 customers.

As we enter Stage One this weekend, restaurants and cafes are urging people to book ahead.

The QT is building a list of where you can and can't dine-in for a meal in Ipswich.

We'll continue to add to the list as we receive more information and confirmation from Ipswich businesses.
