The countdown to outdoor drinking and dining is on.

Level 6 Trinity Leeds, 70 Boar Lane, Leeds LS1 6HW 
Good times are pending on Angelica’s terrace, and they are taking terrace bookings from 12th April–16th May. Don't forget to try their classic cocktails while you’re there – think daiquiris, martinis and margaritas. With comfy outdoor seating and parasols, you’re sure to find your happy place here. 

The Bay Horse
45 The Green, Hurworth DL2 2AA
If you enjoy sophisticated country pubs where the food is top notch, the wine-list is well above average and the beers are just right, then be sure to back this horse. Their beautiful beer garden is the place to be in spring and summer to catch some rays while catching up. 

The Blackbird Ponteland
North Road, Ponteland NE20 9UH
This historic pub dates back more than 500 years, and remnants of its past can be found in every corner, from the beautiful Tudor fireplace to the ancient arched entrance way. Their outdoor area is just as delightful with parasols and rustic benches. They’re expecting their garden to be as popular as it was last summer, and you can already book their outdoor tables for al fresco dining. 

The Carpenters Arms
Felixkirk, Thirsk YO7 2DP
This restaurant is located overlooking the beautiful Vale of Mowbray – a spectacular backdrop for a relaxed and delicious meal. So in the warmer months the tiered terrace is the place to be – a great spot for al fresco dining. Don’t believe us? Take their 360 tour online to see exactly what we mean. 

Cook House
Foundry Lane Studios, Foundry Lane, Newcastle NE6 1LH
Casual, all day dining is the name of the game here – especially outdoors in spring. Originally housed in two converted shipping containers overlooking Newcastle’s Ouseburn river, Cook House now  has two floors, a dining terrace, shop and gardens. It’s a haven for all with quality food made with seasonal produce. They’re taking outdoor bookings from 14th April. 

The Fat Badger
Cold Bath Road, Harrogate HG2 0NF
Smack bang in the middle of the Montpellier Quarter, you’ll find one of our favourite traditional English pubs. Serving up local cask ales, exciting cocktails, fine wines and AA Rosette award-winning modern British food, it's no wonder it’s so loved. The Fat Badger beer garden looks to be the place to be for drinks in Harrogate this April. 

Horticulture Newcastle
1–3 Market Lane, Newcastle NE1 6QQ
We can’t wait to get back to this spot on Market Lane and start our day with their Muckle breakfast, or end an evening with one of their famous espresso martinis on the terrace. They’re planning to open their outdoor terrace for bookings from 12th April for brunch, drinks and light bites every day. 

The Lexington Rooftop Bar & Terrace
DoubleTree by Hilton, 24 Ferensway, Hull HU2 8NH
While the sun shines, we can’t think of anything better than sitting on this terrace sipping cocktails. When the sun sets, the outdoor heaters will allow you to stay a little longer. We’ve got our eye on the Old Fashioned (coffee-infused Black Barrel Mount Gay Rum, oak aged, sugar cane syrup and bitters) and a Bonegroni (Mason’s Tea Gin, Bonanto aperitif and Campari). 

The Scruffy Duck
3 High Street, Norton TS20 1AH
The Scruffy Duck is a quintessentially British pub with heaps of character, located in the heart of Norton. Serving traditional locally-sourced food and an extensive wine list, it’s a favourite among the villagers here. Their modern beer garden has plenty of outdoor heaters to keep you warm later in the evening. 

William and Victoria, Harrogate
6 Cold Bath Road, Harrogate HG2 0NA
Harrogate’s longest-running wine bar (and one of the best loved independent restaurants in the area) just couldn’t be missed off our list. Their simple, classic British dishes celebrate Yorkshire produce, and are served in a friendly and welcoming environment. Following the announcement, they are busy working on their al fresco dining experience and the return of their gazebo.
