With the clocks changing tomorrow, the UK will finally see lighter evenings as we head towards the summer months.

As the clocks are changing on Easter Sunday, lots of people might be looking to head to a nearby pub and soak up the daylight.

So, we have compiled a list of the top five beer gardens in south east London according to Squaremeal.

This stylish pub has mismatched vintage furniture and lots of outdoor seating.

The Clock House describes itself as “vibrant yet traditional” and has an extensive menu of food and drinks.
