And what’s even better, they all accept tastecard. So, you can bag 50% off food or 2 for 1 meals with our fantastic restaurant offers, all whilst supping in the sun. You’re so welcome.

The Rosendale Public House and Garden.

Looking for a laid-back spot with good, hearty food? Introducing one of the best beer gardens in London. No, really. The crème de la crème of classic pub grub, The Rosendale serves classics like sirloin steak with chips and beer-battered fish & chips, as well as artisan stone-baked pizzas. We’d recommend the chorizo, goat cheese, tomato, mozzarella and black olive pizza. Yum. Visit for a bite to eat or sample their excellent range of local ales, award-winning wines or innovative cocktails in their inviting outdoor space.

tastecard offer: 50% off food, Sunday – Thursday.



Specialising in vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free French galettes and crêpes, KataKata is an outdoor dining spot nestled right in the hubbub of vibrant Brixton. With a menu just as zesty as its interiors, expect everything from savoury jerk tofu with sweet potato to sweet strawberry, white chocolate and coconut versions. Hosting healthy-eating workshops and live acoustic music evenings, take in a little culture whilst you’re there.

tastecard offer: 50% off food, 7 days a week.

Salsa! Soho.

With Latino music on loop and tons of fiery dishes to try, head to Salsa! Soho for an authentic taste of South America. The Chicken Xim Xim Curry should be at the top of your list: a South American stew made up of crayfish, chicken, peanut butter, coconut milk and veg, served with spicy rice. Trust us, it’s a gooden. And make sure you bring your best dance moves for a post-dinner boogie. Salsa style, of course.

tastecard offer: 50% off food, Sunday – Thursday.

The Garden Terrace at the London Elizabeth Hotel.

Looking for English garden charm? The Garden Terrace at the London Elizabeth Hotel has bags of it thanks to its rose garden and herb garden. In our opinion, it’s definitely one of the best outdoor restaurants in London. And the menu isn’t too shabby either. Dig into rustic, home-cooked British classics like grilled lamb and rib-eye steak. Or tuck into Persian dishes – our favourite is the Ghormeh Sabzi: lamb stew with a blend of mixed Persian herbs, kidney beans and sundried lime. 

tastecard offer: 2 for 1 meals, Sunday – Thursday.
