When the sun is shining it’s time for al fresco dining!
Here’s a roundup of our reviews that feature great outdoor spaces in Surrey:
The Weir Traditional pub with fantastic location alongside the Thames tow path at Sunbury weir. Located behind the Xcel leisure centre in Walton-on-Thames
Thames Court Located on the Thames in Shepperton, on the top of the Shepperton Lock. The river is very wide at this point, sitting on the patio has a great feeling of open and airiness.
The Windmill Located near Ewhurst, The Windmill is perched high up in the Surrey Hills and enjoys stunning, far reaching views.
King William IV Perched above the Mole Valley in Mickleham, the pretty tiered garden has wonderful views over the valley and the hills beyond.
The Green The restaurant in prestigious Burhill Golf Club is open to the public and features a lovely terrace with stunning views over the old course.
Room to Run
The Cricketers Downside Set directly on Downside Common, there’s a massive feeling of space and openness and not a road in sight or earshot. Two playgrounds are in view, making this a popular spot for families.
Gastropubs with exceptionally great gardens
Black Swan Located on a country lane near Ockham, the Black Swan has sprawling outdoor seating for a few hundred. Fortunately they have a second kitchen to manage the demand.
Red Lion Horsell Near Woking, a magnificent gastropub, the patio and garden here are top notch.
Great Gardening Spots
Hothouse Cafe Located in the Medicine Garden courtyard in Cobham, the Hothouse is a walled haven in this charming location.
Petersham Nurseries Teahouse Located in the fairytale Petersham Nurseries, Richmond, the Teahouse is a more affordable alternative to the Petersham Nurseries Cafe.
ps – The Anchor in Wisley also features great outdoor dining, you can read our short reviews about them in our Surrey Eats For Kids post.
