Bars and Pubs with great outdoor areas

Is there a better way to spend an afternoon in London than sat outside a pub on uncomfortable furniture whilst getting sun burnt?

Think hot summer's day. Think pint of freezing cold cider, packed with ice. Think quitting your job and doing this every hour of every day for the rest of your life. (Cue: record scratch as you fall harshly back to reality...)

Even though thousands of pounds are spent scrubbing up a venue's interior decor it's undoubtedly outside, during a rare period of fine weather, where you'll attain the greatest enjoyment during a visit to a pub.

However, since the introduction of the smoking ban many of London's pub and bar outdoor spaces have turned into little more than a sheltered area to grab a cheeky fag out of the rain.

Luckily for you, we've put together a list of the best pub and bar outdoor areas in London. Whether they've been chosen because of the extra detail that's gone into the design and flora, whether it's because of a spectacular vantage point or whether it's because it's a great spot to people watch and critique the talent wandering past on a fine summer's day... they're all here...
