Finally! After what has felt like the longest winter ever, the sun is shining on London – and what a treat it is. We remember being in the height of lockdown this time last year, missing out on some key eating and drinking opportunities. We’re making the most of this summer and have rounded up what, we think, are the best London pub gardens. Grab a mate, and we’ll see you at the bar!
A true north London institution nestled away in the heart of leafy Barnsbury, The Albion is one to have on the map. An unassuming-looking pub, head through and to the back and you’ll find one of the best London pub gardens. The garden at The Albion is a healthily sized oasis, which often has a barbeque on the go to complement their already very decent food menu. A great spot to visit with friends and family alike.
This round-up couldn’t be written without a mention of The Spaniards Inn in Hampstead. Reportedly one of London’s oldest pubs, The Spaniards Inn was established in 1585. Cosy in the winter with low ceilings and lots of exposed timber, The Spaniards Inn is equally popular with locals in the summer thanks to its generous garden with lush surroundings. Our top tip? Get in early, as it is always really busy!
Ok, so maybe Pergola in Paddington is a bit of a cheat, but it really does need to be included in a round-up of best London pub gardens. Technically not a pub, but definitely a must-visit spot on a warm summer evening. With ample space, it’s a great place to visit and feel completely at ease.
On the doorstep of London Fields, Pub On The Park offers a decent pint, good grub, and a number of events and games. You’ll often find locals spilling over and into the pub on a summer eve, as this is a firm local favourite and always a busy bustly spot.
We’re heading south of the river for our final recommendation, The Ship. Known and loved by local Wandsworth residents, we love the food at The Ship. From land to sea, and heroing local seasonal produce, The Ship really comes into its own in the summer with its outdoor grill. An absolute must-visit in our books!
