Beer Gardens in Bournemouth

We all look forward to those warmer evenings where we can enjoy a cold pint or wine in the sunshine don't we? In fact beer gardens are the cornerstone of our social life in the summer - especially in Bournemouth.

Whether you fancy a cask ale after a long walk, a crisp glass of Provence rosé with friends, or just enjoying some family time - what better place to do it than Al Fresco.

Luckily for you, Bournemouth has lots of options for you to enjoy those summer rays or dine in heated huts.
