Where to Eat: Best Pub Barbecues

17 April 2019 Billie Manning

For when the weather’s just too good for a Sunday roast, here is a selection of London pubs that can grill you up a treat…

The Garden Gate
What? Big, mock Tudor pub. Dog-friendly, veggie-friendly, hungry-tummy-friendly
Where? Hampstead, off the southernmost tip of the Heath, by the rail station
Why? The hot dogs from the outdoor barbecue are extremely popular. The barbecue doesn’t see action every day, so make sure to plan in advance. A fabulous spot to stop and reinvigorate yourself before heading to the Heath, or for filling up after a long walk.
 
The Florence
What? Warm, spacious bar-pub suitable for all sorts 
Where? The edge of Brockwell Park, the side next to Herne Hill station 
Why? You’ll get some seriously good BBQ here as soon as the mercury hits a suitable number of degrees and The Florence opens up their outside bar, in their absolutely lovely pub garden. The Florence is particularly kid-friendly (until 7pm), boasting a kids’ play area in the garden, a kids’ menu and activity sheets. Dogs are also welcome, if your babies are canine. Hit up the lido before for a swim – but not afterwards!

The Jam Tree
What? Popular after-work choice with summer barbecues
Where? The King’s Road (no, not the one from Game of Thrones. The one in Chelsea)
Why? The Jam Tree’s multiple accoutrements set it up to be a great night out ni the summer. It’s got a sun-drenched beer garden with an outdoor bar and, of course, a great BBQ, even offering veggie and vegan options ‘to entice even the most hardened of carnivores’.
 
Alwyne Castle
What? Pub with a conservatory and courtyard out front
Where? A short walk from Highbury & Islington towards Canonbury
Why? You definitely won’t run out of space here– the garden can seat 300, so bring your friends and get in line for a tasty burger or hot dog. Located on the not-so-pastoral St Paul’s Road, you certainly won’t forget you’re in London, but it’s all part of the charm.
 
The Rose
What? Big pub beloved by students and locals alike
Where? New Cross
Why? A fabulous beer garden with a lovely mural to regard as you eat, a decked terrace where the barbecue is served. There are loads of food options as there’s a restaurant too. If you’ve got dosh to spare check out their Sunday dinner
