  • ☀🍴We’re one day away from the April 12 outdoor dining and we’re a little bit excited (can you tell?). Whether you want your green space near a river, meadow, canal, village or city rooftop terrace, we’ve scoured #Coventry & #Warwickshire to see where's open and ideas for where to go including @ardenhotelstratford (pictured). Pick your five fave peeps and bag a table at one of these al fresco hot spots. Link in bio.
