After five long months of being locked up inside, lockdown rules are finally easing and oh my god how excited are you to finally see your friends again in a way that isn't a walk through the park? From April 12th, adhering to the rule of six, restaurants, bars and pubs can serve drinks and food to patrons at their table. And the best part? There's no need to order a 'substantial meal' with every drink (that was a weird point in the pandemic).
Luckily for London dwellers, the capital has an abundance of choices perfect for an outdoor tipple. Ahead, we've rounded up an eclectic offering of alfresco drinking locations where we can celebrate long summer nights with a cold ale. Think riverside terraces with views of the Thames, circus-themed gardens, charming verandas, and more must-visit settings for a sunset brew. Bottoms up!
