There really isn’t anything much better than enjoying a drink in the sun on a hot day and we want you to make the most of it - so we have pulled together a definitive list of places around Peckham that have sunny beer gardens, patios or terraces to hang out in. So, things to do in Peckham when it’s sunny…grab a cocktail!

Two Hundred Rye Lane


You might not know, but the cute cocktail bar Two Hundred Rye Lane slap bang in the middle of Peckham’s Rye Lane has a gorgeous garden where you can enjoy coffee, cocktails and food!

The Rye Pub


One of our favourite pubs in Peckham for a Sunday Roast (they have great veggie options too) has a huge beer garden out the back which has the sun all day long. The Rye Pub has a beautiful conservatory-style dining area which leads on to the large garden which has a table tennis table, lots of benches and in the summer they usually have a BBQ on the go. This pub is obviously super dog friendly - so you can bring your doggy pal along with you for a pint (they usually have doggy treats at the bar). Their Sunday roasts are hugely popular choose from roast sirloin of beef (£17), Roast pork belly, Bramley apple sauce (£15), Vegetarian wellington, veggie gravy (£14).

Social - Copeland bar


Nestled behind the Bussey Building in Copeland Park you will find the Social bar - the bar occupies the same space that The Nines Bar once did. Social has a huge seating area inside and outside meaning you can catch a few rays on the large patio area whilst sipping on a cocktail or enjoying a snack from their bar and grill style café. As well as the bar area downstairs you will also find a lounge area concealed away from the main bar on a mezzanine above. Take advantage of their 2-4-1 on all cocktails during Happy Hour on Wednesdays & Thursdays (6pm-7pm).
