Guide to the Best Outdoor Dining Furniture

29th Apr 2022

There is nothing better than enjoying a meal outside. The table laid and sun just beginning to go down. Serving dishes brimming with food from the kitchen, or better yet, meat and fresh vegetables straight from the BBQ. Summer brings with it a whole new room each year; your outdoor dining room.

Dinner parties in the garden. Brunches on the balcony. Coffee, croissants, and contemplation on the porch. From the urban terrace to the sprawling garden, whatever your dining needs or outdoor space, our ‘Outdoor Furniture Guide’ is designed to help you find the best designs for you.

Casual Dining

Looking to host an informal lunch or BBQ? Create a relaxed setup with benches around your choice of table, or opt for a circular design to help create an intimate dining arrangement.

3 outdoor table sets

Our Teak Trewithian Table and Bench Set is perfect for relaxed dining. Light slatted teak wood is contrasted with a sleek aluminium band for a modern design. Perfect for seating four, or comfortably sitting three little ones along one bench for family dinners in the summer.

For larger groups, our Chilson Table and Bench Set makes for a stylish set-up. Available in both a larger and smaller size, you’ll never run out of space for hosting dinner parties all summer long. Mixing contemporary design and industrial materials, this weatherproof design is a worthwhile investment to sit pride of place in your garden.

Finally, our Talland Table takes industrial design and gives it an elegant spin. This contemporary table is perfect for socialising. Round tables create a better flow, great for interaction as no one is “left at the end of the table”, and ideal for smaller spaces so you can squeeze more people around if need be. We'd recommend pairing with Hampstead Scoop Chairs for a light and retro contrast, or our Luccombe Dining Chairs for a subtle pairing.

For Smaller Spaces

Have a small space that needs to work twice as hard? These designs are intended for flexibility and to take up as little space as possible, whilst still making the most of your outdoor area.

3 bistro chair and table sets

The Carrick Table and Chair Set is an elegant design, ideal for that less-used corner in your garden, small patio or charming balcony. Enjoy dining for two with this functional and stylish set. Fully foldable, so you can easily store it out of the way when needed.

Our Bistro designs are intended for spaces that need to be easily cleared or added to for hosting. Easily pull them out for bigger parties to act as a drinks station or buffet table. Available in larger or smaller tables, they’re ideal for two or four – and even more at a push. The tables and chairs come in a range of colours, in everything from soft Greengage to vibrant Lemon to add a touch of French-inspired design to your garden.
