Go alfresco in Southampton

Go alfresco in Southampton

With the government roadmap set to continue and outside spaces at pubs, restaurants and cafes being given the green light to re-open to customers from 12 April, we thought we’d explore some of the places you can enjoy a spot of al fresco dining around the city.

We recommend checking opening times and dates with the restaurant/café prior to arriving and booking in advance (unless otherwise specified) is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. 

Bedford Place/Carlton Place

With the Bedford Place/Carlton Road area road closure pilot scheme in place, you can enjoy more opportunities to eat outside. Sit down with some food or drink on the benches and take in the surroundings of the exciting new public art road painting project, colourful bollards and pretty planters as well as the extra lighting that's now in place. Within the pedestrianised area, find: 

KLC 6907

Please follow social distancing guidance, wear a mask in any indoor areas (unless you are exempt) and make sure all members of your party sign in via the NHS COVIS-19 app - you will be refused entry if you don't. Find out what to expect when visiting a venue on our Keeping Southampton Safe page here. 

Don't forget... many of our cafes, pubs and restaurants continue to offer a takeaway and/or delivery service too.

We are SO looking forward to welcoming you back!
