Eat al fresco: 10 best outdoor dining sets

Eat al fresco in comfort with one of these sets of tables and chairs to suit outside spaces of all sizes

We’re crossing our fingers for a heatwave again this year. When it does come, make sure your garden is summer-ready for moving life outside.

We’ve found a range of dining tables and chair sets so you can dine in style in the garden or on the balcony. From Homebase’s compact bistro set for two to Furniture Village’s smart Aintree range, there should be something for every space.

If it’s value you’re after, Ikea’s sets are worth considering. For something you can easily store away in the shed in the winter months, Laura Ashley’s four-seater set is  more stylish than your average fold-up options. And for a table and chairs that will get your guests talking, we’d go for Leisuregrow’s decorative Casablanca range.
