The Best Alfresco Group Dining Spaces at London Restaurants
Alfresco dining in London – especially during the summer months – provides a safe & memorable experience for guests and enables them to enjoy fresh air, often with a great visual backdrop.
Outdoor Private Dining Spaces in London
Al fresco or outdoor dining is one approach the capital’s events & hospitality sector has taken since the reopening of restaurants in London following the easing of Coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
It allows social distancing and benefits from the reassurance diners derive from the natural ventilation which group dining in fresh air provides.
What can be nicer than sitting in the sunshine with a group of fellow guests whilst dining on a warm roof terrace, pavement or delightful garden at a London restaurant and watching the world go by?
Most outside dining spaces at London restaurants have extremely efficient heating systems to take the chill out of the air for their alfresco diners.
Obviously al fresco group dining is only really suitable for warmer days and we list hundreds of London restaurants with private dining rooms for when the weather is less than kind.
