A charming pub in the heart of Cathays, The Flora is proud to boast one of Cardiff's best outdoor dining spots. A pretty walled beer garden complete with picnic tables, this gorgeous open-air space makes a dreamy backdrop for Sunday roasts, Friday night dinners and casual catch-ups with friends and family.

An impressive pub and restaurant in Cardiff Bay, The Dock is home to not one, but two outdoor terraces. Both offering gorgeous views across the water, you'll be able to dig into a huge range of international plates, alongside great beers, cocktails and a fabulous wine selection.

A relaxed and cheerful watering hole near the National Museum, The Pen & Wig is a prime spot for refuelling after a day exploring the city. Nab a table in their sunny beer garden and fill up on tasty pub grub and fresh pints until late into the evening.

Already one of the best places to watch the rugby in Cardiff, The Old Arcade is also coming up trumps when it comes to relaxing outdoor spaces. Make your way over to the Church Street pub on match days and sunny afternoons for the chance to feast on classic pub plates and plenty of Brains beers.

Offering some of the best burgers in Cardiff, Got Beef is a restaurant designed for summer kick-backs. Head down to Whitchurch Road where this quirky eatery is serving up juicy patties and craft brews from noon until night. And where better to enjoy them than in their sun-trap of a garden?
