6 Nottingham Bars and Restaurants with Outside Dining

8 April 21

Just in time for April 12, we put together a list of city-centre spots where you can (hopefully) bask in the sunshine with a pint in hand...

Magic Garden 
They transformed the old Jamie’s Italian into a Wonderland-inspired hangout just in time for last summer, and catching rays in that decadently decorated garden became a past-time for lots of us in 2020. They’ve announced their reopening with news of festival-style stretch tents to protect us from the rain too.
24-26 Low Pavement, NG1 7DL

Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city, grabbing a pint or two at Fothergills will now mean glimpsing a sneak peek of Nottingham Castle’s renovation, set to open later this year. The pub has changed their opening hours too, meaning they’ll be open every day until at least 9pm. 
5-7 Castle Rd, NG1 6AA

Fat Hippo 
The new kid on the block will be opening its doors for the first time on 12 April, and have even started taking bookings for the occasion. If you can’t wait any longer to sneak a taste of their menu, described as ‘good old fashioned, roll up your sleeves + get it all over your face’ food, you can catch ‘em on delivery now.
9 Broad St, NG1 3AJ

Folk are so happy at the prospect of grabbing a cold one next to the canal that the Canalhouse is already booked out solidly for the first week. The good news is that it's just for the tables under the canopy – if you’re willing to chance a little rain, you can still get your Castle Rock fix.
48-52 Canal St, NG1 7EH

Pitcher and Piano
On a hot summer’s evening, you’ve hit the jackpot if you’re lucky enough to grab the final outdoor table at Nottingham’s Pitcher and Piano. Probably one of the most desired beer gardens in the city, but it’s easy to see why – gothic architecture and sunset skylines. 
High Pavement, NG1 1HN

Oh, how we’re excited to see a bustling Sneinton Market again. Blend has continued to brighten our day throughout lockdown by still offering takeaway during limited hours, but nothing quite compares to a toastie and iced latte as the sun beats down on the wooden benches.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
