The Garden of the Minories at Tower Hill, Tower Hamlets, built into the arches under the Fenchurch Street viaduct, has been enlarged to double its previous size for £205,000.
The space has been expanded to accommodate more than 200 people.
An expansion became possible when the pub’s parent company bought land from Transport for London and extended an existing beer garden.
fish and chips
Customers can now purchase drinks from an outdoor bar or even fish and chips from a food counter.
The space has four private booths where customers can watch TV and charge their phones.
A pergola with seating for 30 and a butterfly awning have been added for additional covered seating.
The garden is now fully heated and also contains nine TV screens showing sporting events.
The interior of the pub has also been refurbished including a new front and back bar and additional furniture.
Cozy all year round
Pub manager Naveen Vangala said: “The new improved garden means we have one of the best outdoor spaces in the city.
“All covered areas – private alcoves, pergola and awning – are heated and therefore comfortable all year round.
“The outdoor bar will stock the full range of drinks and customers will love having their own fish and chip shop in the garden!”
The garden opened to the public this week on Wednesday 8th August.
