Nation Of Shopkeepers

Bringing art, live music, craft brews and street food all under one roof, Nation of Shopkeepers is a force to be reckoned with. A spacious outdoor terrace is also on hand with tables, benches and booths to keep you cool as you relax with your mates.

While it might not technically be a beer garden, Aire Bar's outdoor space is well worth a mention. Guaranteed to be filled with daytime drinkers at the first glimpse of sunshine, the riverside terrace is a real beauty, with wooden benches dotted all the way along for optimum views.

This converted 19th century pub is all about fresh sips and good times. Not only does The Lamb and Flag's outdoor areas feature cute benches, wooden beams and an upstairs terrace, but it's also dog-friendly, so you can bring your little woofer with you.
