My summer dining out restaurant list for 2022

After long chilly months in the northern hemisphere. I so look forward to the ability to dine outdoors once again. On a hopefully warm. Dry summer day in my hometown London.

Looking ahead to my outdoor plans for the season. I've put together a little list of the 5 top summer dining out restaurants. That I hope to visit here in London soon.

Cantina Del Ponte

The stunning Italian restaurant location of Cantina Del Ponte in London Bridge. Means you can enjoy close up views of Tower Bridge when you book to sit outside. Tower Bridge is a bridge that is a beautiful sight come day or night. Read my article on the best Bridges in London -

I'm especially looking forward to devouring the pasta cheese wheel and dessert of course! 

The cheese Barge 

Speaking of cheese. Floating restaurant the cheese barge in London Paddington is a double decker canal boat. Turned restaurant. Open for lunch. Dinner and afternoon cheese! With a full on cheese menu - as its name suggests. And boy do I love cheese! Expect cheese plates with innovative pairings and small producer wines. 

Tattershall Castle 

Tattershall Castle is another riverside gem. With bonus close up views of the London eye. Head here and sit out on deck. For a casual traditional pint and chip supper with enviable views. 

As well as traditional fish and chips. There's a vegan fish and chip option on their menu. Which is something I don't see very often!

Minnow is a pretty. Modern European restaurant in the heart of Clapham. South London. Featuring a small cluster of tables out front. Plus a large heated outdoor terrace overlooking Clapham Common to the rear. Here you can enjoy happy hour each day from 3pm til 7pm. 

Mercer roof terrace 

I'm quite looking forward to enjoying an afternoon tea this summer. At the striking mercer roof terrace restaurant. Situated atop five star hotel. Vintry and mercer in East London. With views of both the shard and St Paul's cathedral. It's a modern European restaurant with charm.
