Don’t give up on the idea of outdoor dining just yet! There’s a good few more pleasant September evenings to come for an alfresco supper (finger crossed)

CENTRAL

CLERKENWELL KITCHEN

This EC1 café will happily serve you on one of the secluded outdoor courtyard tables at any time of year – though if it’s chilly, take a jumper, as they don’t have heaters. 27 Clerkenwell Close, EC1R 0AT.  Farringdon.

NORTH

CARAVAN

With its views of the Granary Square fountains, the no-bookings alfresco area is much in demand. Only open on fine days, so call to check: 7101 7661. 1 Granary Square, N1C 4AA. King’s Cross.

EAST

ROYAL CHINA

Being able to enjoy dim sum outdoors is a rare treat, and this riverside branch of the excellent Royal China is one of the few places where it’s possible. Eat dumplings outside while you still can. 30 Westferry Circus, E14 8RR. Westferry

WEST

GALLERY MESS

On sunny September days, they’ll keep the chairs at this King’s Road gallery out until 9pm – but come October, it’s until 6pm only. Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ (just off King’s Rd), SW3 4LY. Sloane Square

 South

FISH, WINGS AND TINGS 

Grab an outdoor table at the end of the Granville Arcade in Brixton Market and be taken on a Caribbean culinary adventure. 2 Atlantic Road, London, SW9 8PS. Brixton
