Your workplace may have mercifully ground to a halt, but that doesn't mean your appetite for good food and coffee has too. Maybe you want to recuperate at home or gorge on chocolate this Easter weekend, but if you're keen to linger over drinks or a meal with family and friends, there's plenty of choice. Whether it's somewhere new or an old favourite, our list of venues staying open over Easter has something for everyone.
