The weather has been simply incredible recently hasn’t it! Whilst our teams have been very busy, they’ve also found some time to get out and about too, so we asked them where they’ve been recently for outdoor drinks. Here they are…and we’d love to hear yours too!
Louise Simpson, Area Sales Manager, Reigate & Redhill
Botley Hill Farmhouse in my opinion has the best pub garden in the area. It has amazing views across the rolling Surrey Hills and quite often a great place to spot hot air balloons passing by! I love meeting friends here for an afternoon catch up.
Paul Mulligan, Area Sales Manager, Croydon
Just up the road from Louise’s suggestion, The White Bear is set in the countryside and has a great beer garden overlooking fields with horses. In the summer they have an outside bar and a BBQ so perfect for the weekend with my family.
Mark Waldron, Area Sales Manager, Sevenoaks
You can get a great pint at the George and Dragon in Chipstead, and the bonus is the amazing menu that has lots of fresh local produce – delicious!
Joey Hansen, Negotiator, Brighton
Hove Place in… you’ve guessed it, Hove! It has an amazing west facing beer garden and the atmosphere is very ‘Hove’. With friendly staff and great food from local suppliers too, it’s one of my favourite places to go.
Zac Ship, Area Sales Manager, Tunbridge Wells
I’m getting married here so it’s fair to say I’m a fan! The gorgeous barn and lovely gardens at The Plough at Leigh are wonderful places to enjoy the delicious food, especially the Sunday lunch. There is also a play area for the children so it’s perfect for a relaxed Sunday afternoon.
Alex Goodman, Area Sales Manager, Brighton
Brighton Music Hall on the seafront is a firm favourite of mine. The seaview sunsets are incredible to watch from the beachside seating area while listening to live music from a varied selection of talented musicians. A perfect chilled out place to catch up with friends.
Damian Bligh, Sales Manager, Reigate & Redhill
I enjoy going to the Carpenters Arms in Limpsfield, as they have a great garden with a BBQ in summer which ticks all my boxes!
Ryan Milson, Negotiator, Croydon
The Derby Arms on Epsom Downs is lovely this time of year, have a stroll on the downs, then tuck into a nice cold beer and some tasty snacks while overlooking the race course. Fantastic!
Ross Margetts, Sales Manager, Haywards Heath
I enjoy going to the Black Rabbit in Arundel, and have lunch overlooking the River Arun with the castle in the distance. They also serve ice cream for dogs which my pug, Rosie, loves! They even have a “dog-wash” for mucky paws or ice-cream whiskers!
Mathew Gurr, Area Sales Manager, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill & Lindfield
Trading Boundaries just by Sheffield Park Gardens is great and has a brilliant play area at the rear so great for families. It has the added bonus of a furniture and accessories shop on site, so there is something for everyone here! It’s not that far from the Bluebell Railway station at Sheffield Park, or you can take a short drive to play Pooh Sticks on Ashdown Forest.
Sue Peyton, Sales Progression Team
I love a long cold glass of pimms in the Red Barn garden, it’s the perfect place to while away a summer afternoon. There is a beautiful garden and if you fancy a day at the races, Lingfield Race Course is just up the road!
This is just a snapshot that we’ve grabbed from our busy team, and we know you’ll have some more places up your sleeve, so please do share with us!
