The Three Tuns hostess Sue Hoe told Hull Live “it’s good to be finally open again” and her partner Dave Whitehand, who runs the pub with her, feels the same.
He said: “The past few months have been difficult. When a pub closes its affections, it’s not just the owners.
“Our extraordinary staff has been on standby and by working in a team we have put together an action plan to ensure that the pub is safe for us and our customers.
“The pub has been open for 10 years since it closed after the floods and this is the first time in the past 10 years that we have spent a day without opening.
“Even if we don’t do the usual weekend entertainment with quizzes, live bands and singers, we still have music and conversations to keep the atmosphere alive.
“The one way system to get in and out of the premises works well, come in front of the pub and disinfect our hands, talk to a member of our team to know the rules and take the details for traceability and then find your place to enjoy the pub, so when it’s time to go home, go out through the beer garden which has marked walkways to make sure people are safe and remote.
“Our courageous staff wear all the PPE that they feel comfortable with and we are communicating regularly with customers to make sure they have everything they need to have fun.
“Our toilets and all surfaces are cleaned every 30 minutes. Many of the introduced standards that we have been working with for many years. Keeping the pub clean and safe has always been our priority.
“The only difference is a few fewer tables and one person at a time.
“Some of our customers say they are happy to be back and we feel the same way.”
