The best beer gardens in London to head to this weekend

Summer is upon us: the days are longer, the nights aren’t over as quickly and the weather has taken a turn for the better. And when the sun shines bright all weekend, there’s only one place to head: the beer garden. The trouble is, London is riddled with them so it can often be difficult to separate the good from the awful. Don’t fall short by spending your weekend in an overcrowded, over-raucous beer garden and instead, head here:

The Eagle, Shepherd's Bush

The eagle shepherd's bush

One of the most glorious beer gardens in all of London, this idyllic spot is a bona fide sun catcher that becomes its own during the sunniest of days. A lovely terrace overlooks the contemporary garden, which features sculptures, cast-iron railings and giant Victorian lanterns. A trump card.

The trouble with so many beer gardens is that they can be absolutely rammed from top to bottom for the whole weekend from start to finish, but when you’ve got a front, back and side garden like The Avalon – you know you’re set. You also know that when you enter an establishment that has it’s own dedicated bar and kitchen to serve up summer cocktails and a regular hog roast, you’re entering a very good.

This is exactly the type of place you want to head if you’re in it for the long haul. This place is rammed with everything you need for an amazing weekend in a pub garden – and we don’t just mean because of the free-flowing alcohol. Think old-school games consoles, resident weekend DJs and a general ambience that will make you feel undoubtedly like you are in the middle of a countryside pub – just with a lot of like-minded people surrounding you.

The Roebuck, Hampstead

The Roebuck Hampstead

Everything and more that you could ask for from a lively London beer garden, this is a local London pub which straddles Hampstead Heath: a handsome facade with ample greenery, traditional Sunday roasts and a cosy sun trap garden. Take it from us, gents, The Roebuck is where you need to head.

The Half Moon, Herne Hill

The best beer gardens in London to head to this weekend

Herne Hill has a lot to offer, being conveniently sandwiched between Brixton and Dulwich, The Half Moon is the perfect culmination of a Grade II-listed trendy pub meets sophisticated bar and kitchen. The glorious patio garden is only one of many exquisite features this pub has to offer – but of course, when the sun is out, the only thing you’ll settle for is a chilled pint in the garden. Cheers!
