As we move into Tier 2 restrictions in London, many of us will be looking for outdoor options to meet people. "Have you got a beer garden?" isn’t normally a question we’d be asking venues in autumn, so organising a get-together - and one that isn't chilly - might seem like a challenge.
This way: Heated pub beer gardens are just around the corner from you
You can see friends and family while enjoying a tipple or a bite to eat in a covid-safe way at any of the venues below which are offering space and warmth outside. Plus you'll be helping to support some of our fantastic local pubs. It's win win!
