One of London's unsung heroes, this lovely small restaurant just off St James's Street opens up a divine hidden courtyard every summer. Expect French fine dining (oeuf en Meurette, confit duck) and a long wine list.
Victoria Beckham is behind the styling for this year’s terrace design at Scott’s, working alongside floral designer Flora Starkey to create a look inspired by the beautiful white garden at Sissinghurst Castle. Come here for the fish and the undeniably dazzling glamour!
There’s a jungle feel to the terrace at Roka Canary Wharf, overlooking the green space of Canada Square. And every last Friday of the month (starting 1 June), this space is going to host a themed summer rooftop party with Ciroc vodka.
The Sanderson’s tranquil, Japanese-inspired Courtyard Garden is one of London’s best-kept secrets. Go there for dinner and cocktails – good, old-fashioned American food done really well, and inventive drinks. Our favourite is the Tonton, which comes with a side of bright-green Perrier-Jouët sorbet.
Matthew Williamson designed the courtyard garden at Blakes; vivacious colour with graphic murals, a tumbling flower wall and a gold-domed bird cage making for a fabulous focus point. The irresistible menu is based around the freshest and organically produced ingredients.
This new garden terrace lights up for a joyful mood at night. During the day, it’s a great sun trap and the ideal spot for a punchy Hari Mule. And you don’t need to worry about the British weather – there’s a retractable roof just in case the weather turns chilly.
