Nature is returning, the pubs are reopening people! That’s right you can score takeaway pints to take to the parks (OR have at home) AND in some pubs you even get to go up to the bar and order! HOORAY. Here is our list of places to score a crisp, cold pint. All are observing social distancing rules so you should too and take note, none have their toilets open. Most of them will, however, fill up your own container which means you can be green. CHEERS GUYS.
The Prince, N16 – Only open Friday – Sunday, 2pm – 6pm this local pub has the longest list of beers we’ve seen to takeaway.
Clissold Park Tavern, N16 – This pub is just off Clissold Park so the walk time is under one minute, and you get to go in and order at the bar. Just like the good old days. Aperol Spritz and pizza too! From 3pm daily.
Rose and Crown, N16 – Open Wed – Sun, 2pm – 6pm this is the place for real ales & lager plus they provide jugs to takeaway and reuse. On Fridays there are hot dogs too.
The Queensbury, NW2 – Takeaway pints and Pimms. Summer essentials.
The Prince of Wales, NW1 – Right next to Primrose Hill, we challenge you to grab a beer and walk to the top…10 points to anyone who makes it there with an untouched pint!
The Stag, NW3 – One of our fave pubs in London – those cabanas! Now doing takeaway pints and you’re not far from the Heath. WINNER.
The Gatehouse, N6 – Cold draught beer and deli goods. A one stop boozer for your picnic needs.
The Landseer Arms, N19 – Another pizza and beer option and it’s not too far from Finsbury Park.
The Golden Lion, NW1 – Thursday – Sunday and they do roasts too.
The Red Lion & Sun, N6 – As well as doing pints, the Highgate pub is also selling takeaway wine and food, including Sunday roasts. That’s all your essentials covered then.
The George & Monkey, EC1R – takeaway pizza & beer, Wed – Sun 3pm -7pm
Pub on The Park, E8 – This one is literally in London Fields so the effort required for a cold one is minimal
The Dove, E8 – On Broadway Market this one was an early adopter of the takeaway beer. The one that was on the news. TUT TUT

The Star by Hackney Downs, E5 – Draft beers and cocktails are being poured at this Hackney pub seven days a week, 2pm – 8pm.
