Jul 05, 2013 Something To Do: Our Top Beer Gardens If you haven't been excited by the glorious rays bathing the streets of London since yesterday afternoon (and set to continue for the next week!!) you're probably not from the UK - if, like us, you're foaming at the mouth counting down the final minutes until 6 o clock today you'll appreciate this list we have complied to help you source the fun in the sun ..... Here are a few of our top beer gardens across London Stay Cool And The Gang at The Stag, Hampstead For all day sun, top notch nosh, a "beeropedia" for those who like to chose and Sunday night live music for everyone who wants to ignore that it's a school night - a no brainer! The Bold & The Beautiful at The Garden Gate, Hampstead For those too lazy to walk from the Heath to The Stag! A buzzing garden and new outdoor bar..... this place will be heaving with the young and the beautiful! High Society at The Albion in Islington For those who like to think they know a secret ... and indeed they do. This pub is tucked away down a residential Islington street, is leafy and spacious and pulls in a rather civilised clientele .... rather! The Craic at The Faltering Fullback in Finsbury Park A personal favourite - find us fanning ourselves in the newly renovated garden with a (half) pint of the black stuff imagining we were outside Grogan's in Dublin for the afternoon. Play Swiss Family Robinson at The Grand Union in Brixton The Sunday saviour after a heavy night (probably there!) before - enjoy a life saving Bloody Mary from one of the raised huts overlooking the rest of the garden and feel a little smug that you've got the best seats in the house. The Water Rats at The Ship in Wandsworth This decked beer garden is vast and overlooks the Thames so is don't forget to lather up the back of your neck as the sun get's everywhere here. The place is popular with antipodeans and rugger huggers but/and (strike off option accordingly!) the food is good. Finding Eden at The Windsor Castle in Notting Hill This pub offers a welcome respite from a day shuffling through Portobello Market, or even the 10 minutes slog through Notting Hill station, with a quant, aged garden draped in foliage this outdoor spot has a touch of the enchanted to it ... as do the many ethereal, pixie-sque, end of term celebrants you can expect to find there. The beer is good, the energy is high and food is consistently delicious. Happy Hangover!
