Who really wants to be a BBQ pro? The process of placing raw marinated meat on a hot grill can be more hassle than it's worth, not to mention the smoke inhalation.

Instead of calling your friends over to ruin your garden, book a garden table at one of these pubs. Not only do they serve cold beer on tap, they have a mean BBQ menu too.

Fridays are a treat at the Lord Nelson where you can relax with a pint and very unique burger. There's llama, ostrich, camel, springbok and water buffalo burgers on the menu. The pub also has a local favourite, the Greek Economic Miracle Burger, made with lamb and mint stuffed with feta and halloumi.

5 | The Rose Pub, Fulham

When the weather is warm, you can guarantee the barbecue will be on serving the best free range meats, fish from sustainable stocks all sprinkled with the pub's home grown herbs. The lobster is a wonderful weekend treat but make sure you book or you'll be disappointed.
