CENTRAL

BAR TERMINI, SOHO

Cocktail Bar | Ba-Bou | RR
I love this tiny cocktail bar by Tony Conigliaro as it’s so relaxed yet chic with big windows which open out onto bustling Old Compton St – bringing in welcome breeze in the summer months; you can make reservations, so make sure to request these spots when you do.

CLIPSTONE, GREAT PORTLAND ST

Modern Euro | Ba-Bou | RR | £££
Cool minimalist modern sister restaurant to Portland. They’ve got some seating on the kerb so you can munch away.  When I went, I had monkfish with young carrots, yuzu and dandelion which was delightful.

EAST

CHIC ‘N’ SOURS

Fried Chicken | Basic | W&R | £
I found the fried chicken I had quite average – the crumbs didn’t bind with the chicken and slipped off very easily. However, the sour cocktails were bang on.

CRATE BREWERY, HACKNEY WICK 

Pizzas | Basic | W&R | £
Tried most of their pizzas which are all pretty rad – don’t go expecting any kind of service. It’s a pub / bar that just happens to serve pizzas. Come summer, it gets incredibly packed outside, so if you hate crowds, then this ain’t your spot. Mixed bag of hipsters and tourists.

SOUTH

BEAUFOURT HOUSE, CHELSEA

International | Ba-Bou | W&R
Nice bright refined venue. They’ve got big windows which they swing open when the sun decides to treat us to some heat. However, the food is somewhat mediocre food, so best for drinks but you’ll probs need to get some nibbles to justify your seat.

FLAT IRON SQUARE, LONDON BRIDGE

Street Food | Basic | NR | £
This hip street market has lots of outdoor areas you can pitch up at. Have a wonder round the food stalls inside, grab some booze and then head back outside again. There are also stand alone restaurants like Bar Douro where you can dine outside – best to book in advance.

MALTBY STREET MARKET, BERMONDSEY

Various | Basic | NR | £
This small street food market, an offshoot of Borough Market is always rammed and hectic come the weekend but I still really like it. If you get here early enough you can grab one of the outdoor seating areas but you’ll need to buy booze / food from the stall owners that operate it.

FIVE MILES, SEVEN SISTERS

Pop-Ups | Basic | NR | £
This is from the same guys behind Pamela in Dalston. It’s a bar, brewery and a club in Seven Sisters. It’s also got a massive courtyard where you can knock back the old G&T they have on tap (actually delicious, coming from someone who ain’t a massive fan of premixed drinks). Only been here at night, so not sure how buzzy it is in the day. Full of trendies.

OLDROYD, ISLINGTON

Seasonal | Basic | RR | ££
This lovely restaurant in Old Street is pretty compact. They serve seasonal British produce but with plates from Europe, with a strong influence from Italy. Upper Street ain’t the most picturesque street in the world but if it’s hot and you want to dine outside, you have the option.

PRIMEUR, CANONBURY

French | Ba-Bou | RR | £££
This neighbourhood resto on a residential street serves up solid fare and is located in a converted garage. Come sunshine, they completely open out the doors, so make sure to request to sit right at the front when you reserve, so you can get hit by some glorious rays.

WESTERN’S LAUNDRY, DRAYTON PARK

Modern European | Ba-Bou | RR | ££
Primeur’s sibling. The focus is on seafood. It has a massive courtyard but sadly you can’t eat here but you can drink loadsa vino whilst you wait for your table or even post dinner. Like Primeur, it has massive doors, so try and grab a seat at the front for some faux al fresco vibes.
