Now the sun is out and the evenings are long and light, there’s nothing better than a post-work glass of wine with friendsĀ in the sunshine…

One of our favourite W11 locals is The Metropolitan, towards Westborne Park. When we were there recently the rain kept us inside on the plush leather sofas, but one of the pub’s many perks is that it has ample outside space, including a landscaped beer garden and a roof terrace, so there’s always a good chance of nabbing a seat if the sun does decide to shine.

It’s no secret that the team here like some good pub food with their shiraz, and The Met has some great sharing options on its menu. A particular favourite of one of our girls is the steak sandwich with hand-cut fries, but we can’t say that there was much sharing on this occasion!

Cheers to long summer evenings ahead!
