Got a feeling you'd enjoy a little boules in your spare time? Roll with it. These are the places you can play the French ball game (and its Provençal variant, pétanque) in London

Balls Brothers

Bars and pubs Wine bars Borough and London Bridge

The London Bridge outpost of this bar and restaurant chain boasts an outdoor pétanque pitch that’s under cover thanks to the handsome Hay’s Galleria. You’ll need to gather a group of at least ten to play, spending a minimum of £15 each per 90 minutes. Booking is recommended but will require a deposit.

Baranis

Bars and pubs Wine bars Chancery Lane

This Provence-themed basement bar just off Fleet Street offers French food, 15 types of pastis and a gravelled pétanque court to distract you from them. It’s free to play, but booking is recommended. Note that Baranis is open Monday to Friday only, so you’ll have to go elsewhere for weekend ball fun.
