Revamped and ready for sunshine, D&D’s summer terraces are the perfect spots for outdoor dining in London. During the summer months, guests can drink in the views of the capital atop the roof terrace of South Place Hotel’s Angler restaurant and French bistro Orrery, dine riverside at Le Pont de la Tour and kick back with an outdoor barbeque at pop-up terraces from Old Bengal Bar and Fish Market. 

Old Bengal Warehouse will host a series of pop-ups in the city from June. Resident seafood restaurant, Fish Market, will be bringing coastal dining to the city with an adaptation of a Fisherman’s Cottage. From the beginning of June until the end of August, the terrace will have a menu of nostalgic seaside dishes including Fisherman’s catch (fish of the day) and Fisherman’s net (prawns and shellfish) as well as summer fish salads and lemon posset served with raspberries and shortbread biscuits. An outdoor ice cream cart will also be available alongside a selection of spritzers from around the world.

Occupying the outside terrace, Old Bengal Bar will have a mid-week ‘surf and turf’ barbeque menu. The bar will also boast a dedicated Californian wine list to celebrate the launch of D&D’s Californian wine month. Specially selected bottles will be available to buy from an American-themed indoor vineyard at the New Street Wine Shop. 

Orrery, D&D London’s luxury French restaurant in Marylebone, will undergo a refurbishment this June to its bar and terrace, creating a refreshed, contemporary new interior designed by Conran & Partners. The new furniture will accommodate more seated diners, allowing for more French food lovers to delight in Head Chef Igor Tymchyshyn’s delicious al fresco menu with light dishes perfect for enjoying in the summer sun at this hidden gem.  The Orrery rooftop terrace will also receive a makeover. Nestled amidst the rooftops of Marylebone, with views overlooking St Marylebone church gardens, the quaint garden terrace will be lined with lavender and decorated with hurricane lanterns to achieve an elegant and tranquil feel – the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a spot of al fresco dining.

Riverside restaurant, Le Pont de la Tour will be transforming its terrace this month into a stunning Provence-inspired al fresco retreat. Head chef Tom Cook has created a Provence-style menu full of the fresh and natural flavours for which the region is known such as Pissaladiere; and Aubergine, caramelised onion, pepper and aubergine caviar. To accompany these dishes, the bar team has put together a list of Provence-inspired botanical cocktails, using fresh herbs from the terrace, including a Rosemary Negroni made with Aperol, sloe gin and rosemary-infused sugar.

Michelin-starred restaurant Angler in South Place Hotel has now re-opened its rooftop terrace. The stunning outdoor space is the perfect place to dine alfresco whilst enjoying the views over the city of London and Head Chef Tony Fleming’s exquisite á la carte and tasting menus.
