As the nights grow colder, there’s no reason you can’t still enjoy a spot of al fresco dining with your friends. The capital is home to numerous outdoor seating areas with heaters and blankets to help you keep the chill at bay.
We’ve rounded up the best restaurants and bars with cosy outdoor terraces – and given them a warm rating too!
Cantina Del Ponte
Dine on delicious Italian food overlooking the River Thames at Cantina Del Ponte’s outdoor terrace.
Warm rating: if you manage to get one of the tables next to the building, you’ll be warm – their overhead heaters really work. But do bring a scarf and hat just in case. The upsides of stunning views of Tower Bridge come with a slight downside of riverside gusts of wind!
WHERE: 36c Shad Thames, London SE1 2YE
