Restaurants, pubs, cafés and other hospitality venues have reopened, sitting groups of up to 6 people.

But which restaurants, pubs and cafés in Chiswick have outdoor areas, or covered outdoor areas?

More places than you might realise have outdoor seating, though the amount of tables vary significantly between venues and not all have outside heaters. I’d recommend even with the larger pubs or restaurants to book a table in advance.
