London is full of cafés, bars and restaurants that let you take it outside. Still, for every rose-trimmed terrace there's a caff with two tables plonked next to traffic lights – so it helps to know where the good outdoor spots are. Here's our area-by-area alfresco dining guide, including restaurants in central London.
The London base for contemporary, upmarket Shanghai restaurant Bright Courtyard, which can be found by a five-minute walk from the back of Selfridges or 10 minutes from the Marble Arch corner of Hyde Park. Food ranges from dim sum to traditional Shanghai dishes, such as spicy jellyfish and sugar-coated redside dace, to more modern Cantonese fare, including roasted pigeon (not from the streets of London thankfully) and tea-infused king prawns. Plenty of prosecco, Champagne and wine options are on hand, plus sake, beer and soft drinks.
Venue says Bright Courtyard is a contemporary Chinese restaurant situated in the landmark building 55 Baker Street.
