Beloved Beer Gardens
On Monday 12th April, Britain's beloved beer gardens will re-open their doors for celebratory spring drinking. Nothing hits the spot like a freshly poured pint and a plate of salty chips – we’re counting down the days with seven pub garden picks, one for each day of the week.
A grade II listed, ivy-clad building overlooking Parsons Green, Aragon House boasts a big beer garden at the back plus a front terrace for drinkers and diners. Look out for Lucky Saint on tap.
A quintessential Cotswold’s country inn, nestled on the banks of the river Burford. Grab a table on the lawn for an afternoon of riverside views, pints of Lucky Saint and fantastic pub grub.
The Antelope’s back patio is a hidden treasure off the high street – a cosy drinking den dotted with bunting, fairy lights and potted plants. Order a round of ice cold Lucky Saint and some sweet potato fries for the table.
Leytonstone’s biggest beer garden comes complete with long sharing tables for groups, quieter corners for couples or remote workers, plus Thai street food from Krapow!. Their Thai fried squid pairs particularly well with Lucky Saint’s crisp, citrus notes.
This iconic Manchester pub is not only home to a huge beer garden, but also the ‘hanging kebab’ – a theatrical dish loved by locals. Try the Salt and Pepper Pork with a cold bottle of Lucky Saint.
Go for a Sunday session at The Stag – a buzzy beer garden favoured by North Londoners for its summer barbecues, live music and great vibe. Lose a lazy afternoon with five friends and several pints of Lucky Saint.
Bristol’s urban, city centre pub and micro-brewery is a brilliant spot for next week’s outdoor drinking, taking over the cobbled King Street with a sun-trap terrace, an extensive draught menu and beer-loving locals.
