The Turks Head

An unexpected gem in East London's Wapping, The Turks Head is a cosy traditional pub with a gorgeous outdoor terrace. Not only is it covered and heated, but the den has been decked out in lush greenery, making it the perfect setting for a feast and some craft pints. 

The MAINE Mayfair

The MAINE Mayfair is home to one of the most stunning garden restaurants in London. Perfect whatever the weather, it's adorned with glowing fairy lights and pretty plants. Snap up a spot to tuck into New England-inspired brasserie bites - we're talkin' steaks, seafood and delish desserts.


A top choice of Marylebone restaurants with outdoor seating, Trishna has a quaint terrace waiting for you to catch some rays. Not only that, but this place is delving out Michelin star Indian cuisine, with fine wines from lesser-know producers to match.
