It’s getting warmer by the week, the sun in shining and all you want to do in your spare time is head to a beer garden and bask in the sun with a drink and some great pub grub.

But where’s best to go?

We’ve put together some ideas for the best beer gardens in Kent and Sussex!

The Potting Shed, Langley

The Potting Shed, Langley

The Potting Shed in Langley, Maidstone is a hot spot for all ages. With a spacious garden area equipped with kids playground, alfresco private dining shacks and even boutique bedrooms, you can spend all day here and not get bored!

Finding a beer garden in Kent that works for adults and kids alike is hard to come by but The Potting Shed has it just right!

Tables outside are on a first come first served basis.

The Great House, Hawkhurst

The Great House, Hawkhurst

Looking for something a little more quiet? The Great House has a lovely terrace area and small grass garden area for alfresco drinking and dining. Off the beaten track, you won’t hear any traffic or disturbances, just a peaceful intimate dinner with friends or loved ones.

The Lazy Fox, Mark Cross

The Lazy Fox, Mark Cross

Nestled in the border of Tunbridge Wells and East Sussex countryside is The Lazy Fox. Perhaps one of the most breathtaking views from a pub we’ve ever seen!

Step out of the pub into the garden where you’ll find 3 alfresco dining shacks, terrace area and kids play area. On top of all of this, you can look out for miles across the countryside.

To sit outside, just rock up!

The Wishful Thinker, Lenham

The Wishful Thinker, Lenham

Elite’s newest pub garden, The Wishful Thinker is a biggie. Fully kitted out with private dining shacks, kids play area and garden for kids to play and dogs are welcome!

The large terrace area is a sun trap for those glorious summer evenings. After your meal, you can head to a tribute night on a Saturday or to one of the stunning bedroooms 7 nights a week!

The Gun, Heathfield

The Gun, Heathfield

It really doesn’t get much better than The Gun’s beer garden. Not only can you sit on the spacious terrace or grass area but beyond that are fields upon fields. In the spring time, you may get a visit from the local lambs or horses.

There are private shacks and a kids playing area too!

The Poacher and Partridge, Tonbridge

The Poacher and Partridge, Tonbridge

One of Elite’s biggest beer gardens, the Poacher really leaves you wanting nothing. Views for days as well as a huge grass area for kids to play as well as climbing frame. There’s terrace seating if grass isn’t you thing, an outside bar and private dining shacks.

A garden you could spend all day in!
