6 Pub Gardens to enjoy this summer.

Updated: Jul 22



As lockdown in London gradually eases we are starting to think about which pubs we can't wait to get back to and it's a very long list I can tell you!

Our pubs are looking very different from when we last saw them and it may not be so easy to get a table plus your humans may still be a bit nervous of getting too close to other humans.

If you prefer to remain outdoors this summer but still want to enjoy a great dog friendly pub, then you're in luck because many of London's pubs have fabulous gardens.

Here's 6 pubs with outdoor spaces chosen by me and my pals.


Richard 1st - Greenwich


Enjoy a lovely walk in Greenwich Park and then pop over the road to the Richard 1st pub.

The garden at the rear is large and enclosed - perfect for enjoying your after walk refreshments.

All Young's pubs are re-opening on 20th July.

Woolpack, Bermondsey


Another Young's pub this time in the very dog friendly area of Bermondsey.

When we visited in early March they were refurbishing the garden area so it should be even better when they re-open on 20th July.



Kings Arms, Wandsworth


The last of our Young's pubs in this blog is The King's Arms which is on a very busy junction in Wandsworth but the garden at the rear is an absolute oasis of calm. As you can see there is plenty of space for more than one dog.



Red Lion, Barnes


This Fullers pub in beautiful Barnes not only has a fantastic garden with loads of space but it is also home to The Great British Sausage Roll Off every February.

They often have BBQ's in the garden and the food is always good.

They are open and waiting for you!

The Garden Shed, Wimbledon


This Kiwi pub in Wimbledon has a really pretty rear garden with plenty of space and comfortable seating - tried and tested by Archie!

The Cuckfield, Wanstead


This East London pub has the biggest garden in Wanstead and as you can see it is definitely big enough to accommodate our friend Hercules.

It's a great place to refresh and refuel after a walk in Wanstead Park.

They are currently open for bookings.

Follow them @thecuckfielde11 for updates.
