The Albion has one of those pub gardens that you can easily end up in until late. It’s big, wisteria-filled and has a lot of seating options. You’ll have competition though, this place is a N1 destination when the sun comes out. Yes, it gets busy, and it’s sometimes filled with a slightly rah crowd, but the outside space is excellent, and so is the drink selection. The food is tasty too - just don’t bother with the more creative, expensive dishes. Also, if the back garden is rammed, they’ve got a fair amount of space out front as well.
