This al fresco bar around the corner from Borough Market is the kind of place that feels like it’s been there forever. With three different sections to book a table at: the garden, the arch, and the taproom - all of which have a QR code which you can scan food and drinks from their bar and food vendors - you can get Roman-style pizza, BBQ, and live musicians. With fairy lights everywhere, fully covered and heated seating, this place has a solid air of summer. Book ahead, because we have a feeling it’s going to be popular.
