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.

Sample a hog roast during the summer months at one of the largest pubs in the Spitalfields area. If you fancy treating your friends, you can host your own hog roast party for up to 60 people. The hog is spit roasted in the garden and served with apple sauce, an oven bottom floured bap, red cabbage and apple coleslaw, potato and spring onion salad and chips.

4 | Lord Nelson, Southwark

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.
