Situated a stones throw from the river, Annie's is by far the most chic place for outdoor dining in Strand-on-the Green. If you’re feeling adventurous cross over the river to Barnes where Annie’s do garden glam as only they know how.

Copper Cow
Very popular with the locals, you have to get there early on a summer’s evening to get an outside spot. Review: New Bovine Resident For Fauconberg Road

Duke of Sussex
Restored to its former glory, this gastro pub also boasts an impressive and spacious garden. Review: Duke of Sussex Restored To Former Glory

High Road House
Ostensibly the place to see and be seen alfresco on the High Road.

Hole in the Wall
Great food and great garden, well worth the walk to Sutton Lane North. Review: Some Things Are Worth Going Off The Beaten Track For

Napa Restaurant
A decked patio lines the outside of the hotel’s restaurant and the Globe Bar, diners should definitely be reclaiming it from the smokers! Review: Head Chef Gives Menus A Makeover

Old Stationhouse
Recent refurbishment has given this ‘fine dining’ pub a large patio garden fit for its food lit in the evenings by 1000 twinkling lights. Interview: Landlord Gentry

Beautiful bijou garden (pictured left) at the rear of this Burlington Lane fish restaurant, perfect place to while away a summer’s afternoon or evening. Review: Fish and Chips Just Got Glam!

Annie’s sister restaurant Rock & Rose is one of the few things I leave Chiswick for. Excellent food and wonderful cocktails – their strawberry bellini is like summer in a glass – well worth the detour.

And for those regular occasions when the sun refuses to shine, Sam’s has a barmy summer offer that you'll find too irresistible to resist on those balmy summer days! They’ve teamed up with one of their wine suppliers and have sourced some delicious, good value wines which they have paired with their evening set menu. Over the summer months from Sunday to Thursday they will be offering a choice of three starters, three mains and three desserts plus a bottle of wine - two courses and a bottle of wine (for two) - £40.00 or three courses and a bottle of wine (for two) - £45.00.

Or go French at Le Vacherin with their ‘Taste of Summer’ until 29th June. Three courses £16.50 including 125ml Glass of Sixième Sens Rosé.
