The Resy Guide To Outdoor Dining in London


Lockdown restrictions eased on July 19th, and indoor dining has been with us for a while — that said, with London’s summer finally kicking in, for many, outdoor dining still seems the best way to go. Dining al fresco also seems to be the best way to see our loved ones and enjoy dining out again, and while doing so, providing  welcome support to an industry still fighting for survival.

Just don’t let your excitement get in the way of the rules: please be respectful of restaurants’ individual protocols, and tip well! Many London restaurants are still serving their communities as takeaways, delis, and wine shops, so you can also support them while enjoying dining outdoors.

From Vauxhall up to Stoke Newington, here’s a handy guide for the best restaurants in London with outdoor seating. And if you don’t see your favourite restaurant open yet, you can always use My Hit List to stay notified about when it plans to reopen.
