The pandemic has brought lots of change to all our lives and across many businesses in the tourism sector.  One area that has successfully emerged is a new fashion for outdoor dining.  Alfresco dining is extremely popular across the continent where most restaurants, cafes and bars offer outdoor seating for you to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather, good food and great company.   This has become increasingly popular here in the UK, as we head for the relative safety of outdoors, and businesses across the South develop new outdoor spaces for us to enjoy a great outdoor dining experience in, no matter what the weather.  As we prepare for hopefully another scorching summer in the South East, there is a host of new and exciting places to enjoy alfresco dining.

Take a look below for some of the finest resturants, bars and cafes with outdoor seating in South East England, where you can meet friends, sample some of the region's great delicious cuisine and hopefully the sunny weather too. 

Top places to enjoy outdoor dining across the South 

  • Between the vines - Known as the wine capital of the UK take the opportunity to visit one of the many vineyards across the South. Whether you choose to order a picnic basket and sample its delights it in the grounds at Oxney Organic Estate, Rye or head onto the terrace at Balfour Winery, Maidstone or Mannings Heath Golf and Wine Estate, Horsham and enjoy the stunning views across the estates, you will not only be able to enjoy great food, but tasty wine to wash it down with. 
  • On the Waterfront - Watch the coming and goings of a busy harbour when you head to Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.  With a choice of over 30 waterfront restaurants and bars, your sure to find the right place overlooking the harbour for you. If you prefer to be surrounded by history, then head to The Courtyard at Southsea Castle, where you can settle down on one of the benches and enjoy quality food and drink, with many ingredients and produce sourced from the local area.
  • On the seafront - Enjoy people watching and the chance to soak up the local atmosphere.  The West Beach Bar & Kitchen at the bottom of British Airways i360, Brighton., beachfront terrace is open for all day dining with a range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options plus a great value kids menu too.  
  • Along the River - Discover the historic Cherwell Boathouse, Oxford, a family run boathouse and restaurant for more than 50 years.  Enjoy great food, great company and a punt along the beautiful River Cherwell for a quintessential English experience. 
  • Afternoon Tea - Visit the 4 star Holiday Inn, Winchester on Morn Hill for a fantastic afternoon tea. During the Spring and Summer why not take tea on our outdoor terrace and enjoy the sunshine!
  • Heart of the Countryside - Watch someone else do the work at The Kitchen at Chewton Glen, in the heart of the New Forest.  The à la carte menu includes grazing dishes, pizzas and gourmet burgers to tantalise the taste buds and what's more you can finish with a very own James Martin pudding.
