Dining Al Fresco

Let’s face it. It’s been a bit of a mixed summer, weather-wise. But we are still hopeful of a late-summer/early autumn spell of sunshine, so we want to let you know about some of our beautiful London locations to dine alfresco. 

Serpentine Bar & Kitchen is located in Hyde Park, right on the Serpentine lakeside. Sit back and enjoy a jug of Pimm’s with our regular visitor, the heron perched on the fence, keeping you company. 

The Riverfront has a great buzz being on the South Bank with an outside cocktail bar and truck. Enjoy a DJ every Friday and Saturday night until 1am.

Fields Bar & Kitchen is found in the middle of Lincoln's Inn Fields, next to the tennis courts. It's open until 8pm in the summer and you can enjoy a delicious wood-fired pizza, side salad and a glass of Prosecco in this friendly, central London park. 

London Wall Bar & Kitchen in the heart of the city, is located right next to the Museum of London. Sit out after work and soak up the atmosphere with a wide range of beers on draft to choose from. 

The House of St Barnabas is a private member’s club that is dedicated to bringing the homeless back to work. It’s in the centre of Soho, on Soho Sq, and has a unique outdoor area with wrap around seating, a wood-fired pizza oven and of course a fantastic cocktail menu.

The Regent’s Bar & Kitchen is in the abyss of the inner circle of Regent’s Park. Sit outside and grab a burger or hotdog from the BBQ and feel like you're in your own back garden. (when you’ve done a very good days gardening) 

Stephen Street Kitchen has also opened its terrace at the back of the restaurant for lunch and dinner and is conveniently located in the West End, off Tottenham Court Road.

One of our favourites, is the garden at the V&A where you can choose from a large selection of hot and cold dishes or enjoy a glass of Pimm’s or Prosecco. Take in the exquisite architecture and enjoy the perfect space for a (fingers crossed) Indian Summer.

If outside London, you might want to come by the Ashmolean Dining Room in Oxford which has a beautiful outdoor terrace open until 10pm every Thursday – Saturday in the summer. Enjoy a jug of Pimm’s with your friends or choose a meal from the delicious summer menu.  And yes, you may have spotted that Pimm’s is definitely the common denominator between all of these outdoor venues!
