The Good Shed In Canterbury

Ok, let's all admit it; it has been boiling recently. With temperatures set to soar to 35 degrees from Monday, Summer has officially arrived. When the sun is out, there's nothing more enjoyable than an alfresco lunch or dinner under a parasol, served with chilled drinks and delicious feasts.

If you're in London for the Summer, finding a restaurant with outdoor dining isn't tricky, but we've put together a list of some of our favourites for you to try out.

If you're planning a day trip a little further afield and aren't sure where to head, we've got you sorted. Don't miss the five alfresco restaurants a train ride from London at the bottom of the list.
