CENTRAL

ANZU, PICCADILLY

Japanese | Ba-Bou | W&R | ££
Tonkotsu’s posh big bro, Anzu, has a decent sized terrace within St. James’s Market. I imagine you’ll have to order something (opt for the gyozas) if you want to drink in their terrace.

CHILTERN FIREHOUSE, MARYLEBONE

American | Ba-Bou | NR
Good bar snacks & excellent drinks coming out of André Balazs celeb haunt. I haven’t tried the main fare so can only recommend the snacks – the chicken sticks are fab, FYI. There’s a lovely large outdoor terrace that’s perfect for a hot summer’s day.

BLUEBIRD, CHELSEA

Outdoor | Ba-Bou | NR | ££
This Chelsea mainstay has a wonderfully buzzy terrace and really comes into its own during the summer especially during Wimbledon when they always put on some display. You will have to queue, so try and get there early. You can eat, drink or do both. Food is decent.

BRUNSWICK HOUSE, VAUXHALL

Seasonal | Ba-Bou | W&R
This cool antique, modern mash up space is very lovely to look at. I had some bar food here yonks ago but wasn’t that impressed. If in the area though, I’d deffo give it a whirl again. It’s got quite a large terrace out front.

PECKHAM BAZAAR, PECKHAM

‘Pan Balkan’ | Basic | RR | ££
Peckham Bazaar has poshed up quite a bit on the inside since I last visited based on the pics I’ve seen when I just googled it right now. When I went the food (‘Pan Balkan’ – their description, not mine) was tasty and well priced. They have a few dining spots outside.

PIQUE NIQUE, BERMONDSEY

French | Ba-Bou | W&R | £££
Restaurant by the Casse-Croûte lot. You won’t find it unless you go searching. Randomly located next to tennis courts & children’s playground is this very chic restaurant with a small outdoor space for eating / drinking (post a tennis rally if you’re feeling energetic). The moelleux is wondrous – try it

TONKOTSU, BANKSIDE

Decent ramen noodle ba (chain) serving up other Japanese bites. They have outdoor seating in the square bit, so if you don’t want to be cooked up inside slurping on some ramen when it’s blazing outside, you don’t have to.

BANC (BRASSERIE), HARRINGAY

Brunch | Basic | NR | £
This great value small brekkie spot by Downhills Park has a small terrace. For any tennis fans, there are courts inside the park which you don’t need to book – so you can work up a sweat and then reward yourself with hash browns afterwards – bliss!

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.

GERMAN GYMNASIUM

German | Ba-Bou | W&R | £££
This decadent Grand Cafe restaurant opposite King’s Cross station has a terrace. Food is OK – you go for the looks really. So, whilst it’s really more of a dining spot than a drinking den, I doubt they’ll shoo you away.

THE WHIPPET INN, KENSAL RISE 

British | Ba-Bou | W&R | ££
Hip neighbourhood bar/bistro in Kensal Rise, food is a little hit and miss. There’s a lovely raised outdoor space where you can eat and or drink. I also think they have a wee beer garden in the back but I’ve never been!
