Favourite London food places with outdoor spaces

By Girl About London – 18 October 2020

With the latest announcements this week, it’s all change for many, and in particular for the hospitality industry. We know you might want to hide-away and stay inside until it’s safe, but you might be waiting a little while. So, we wanted to share some of our favourite food places with outdoor spaces so you can still dine with up to six people if you are in a Tier one or Tier two area. Click here to find out the restrictions in your area before visiting!

Just before we get into the list – remember if it is a bit chilly outside you can still eat inside with family you live with, people in your bubble, your flatmates, other-half, or even on your own!

So don’t forget the places with no outdoor spaces – they need our support too!

Breakfast and brunch ideas:

Grind in Greenwich. Perfect alfresco dining terrace and a great brunch menu. Their are other branches too. Visit their Instagram.
