If you are looking for a beer garden to spend your summer afternoons in, then you need to take a look at Franco’s. Its colourful beer garden is unique and looks like somewhere at the seaside. You can choose to sit outside or hire one of their huts. Either way, you can enjoy some refreshing drinks and maybe order one of their mouthwatering pizzas.

Brel has a huge beer garden, and to help you make the most of it they have split it up into different areas. So you can choose to sit near a fire pit, on the patio, or somewhere else in the garden. However, some of these places do require a deposit. But no matter where you are sitting, you can enjoy one of their many drinks, including cocktails.
