On the day it decides to rain, here come are the pub recommendations you've been waiting for. Our friends at Fancyapint got together last week to pool their considerable pub brain resources and compile a list of top al fresco drinking spots for you to enjoy this summer. Today we have their top ten beer gardens, tomorrow, ten top roof terraces and Wednesday, ten riverside hostelries.

Beer gardens

  • Windsor Castle (Notting Hill)
  • Vanbrugh (Greenwich) Waterman's Arms (Docklands) King's Arms (Greenwich) Richard I (Greenwich) Black Lion (Chiswick) Spaniards Inn (Hampstead) Flask (Highgate) Woodman (Highgate) John Baird (Muswell Hill)

    Agree, disagree? Have we missed your favourite? Let us know in the comments.

    The Sun & Doves, Camberwell.


    In Greenwich the Vanbrugh & Richard 1st definately, but The Kings Arms?! No way, I was there the other week and it's grotty, dingy and covered in muck.


    I'd add the Edinboro Castle in Camden (Although the service can be dreadful, the garden is lovely).

    The Queen's Hotel in Crouch End is the nicest one I know of in my neck of the woods, would love to hear of any others in the area though...

    The Prodigal Fool

    The White Horse, Parson's Green, surely!?
