Garden pub ideas

Be at one with the plants

Firstly, you are outside! So there is no point in trying to replicate an inside pub perfectly. Embrace the fact that you’re where the plants are. Put a few plants on top of the bar area.

This way, it looks more like a natural part mancave gifts of your garden than something that’s been put where it doesn’t belong. Sure, you might look like a hippy, but who cares.

Add a firepit

If you’ve ever seen the show “love island”, you should know about the concept of the fire fit. It’s essentially a structure that has a burning fire in the middle.

It provides warmth, but it’s also a great place to sit around and talk. To make it even better, you could even surround it with nice furniture, so people feel comfortable as they get warm.

Outdoor kitchen

It’s rare for a pub to only do drinks. Most do food too. This is why having an outdoor kitchen can be very helpful.

What you put in your kitchen depends on whether you can get gas and electricity. If you can put a working oven, plus a fridge, great.

If all you can do is a BBQ and an icebox, there is nothing wrong with that.

Add a posh pavilion

Maybe a shabby-chic pub isn’t what you’re after. You could make yourself a posh Pavillion if you’re good at building sheds.

A pavilion is like a nicer version of a shed. Add some wooden floors, a dining room table, and some fancy table cloth, and you have everything you need for a romantic meal.Make use of your space

Not everyone has a big garden where they can put a full-sized pub. We would recommend keeping it simple and making the most out of your space.

You’ll have a lovely drink shelf if you attach some planks to some pallets. And a murphy bar can be folded away when you’re done using it.

Neon Lights

Neon lights have a way of making anything seem fun, futuristic, and youthful.

You don’t need to buy proper neon; LED lights that display a fun message can help to bring character and joy whenever you invite people around.

Have it display a fun message such as “All night long” or even “live, laugh, love”. It should make people look and feel inspired.

Add a funny pub sign

But, maybe you want to look more like a traditional pub. If you walk around the UK, you’ll find pubs named with all sorts of funny and interesting names.

Why not get your DIY on and make your own pub sign. This is an excellent chance to show off your creativity and personality.

You could call it something common like The Kings Head or The Plough. Or, you could be creative and name it the “Duke of Bananarama”. Whatever you choose to call it, make sure it makes people laugh.

Fairy Lights

In the summer, people may wish to come round for cocktails. And what could be better than cocktails at a tiki bar? You’ll feel like you’re on holiday!

Stick some bamboo to your tables and chairs, and add palm leaves for shelter. Even use shells for decoration.

Make your tiki bar look like something from a beautiful Caribbean island. If you make a tiki bar, you’ll also need to learn how to make delicious cocktails.

 

Use your shed

If you’re wondering where to put your garden pub, why not use the shed? It’s already sheltered, and it often comes with electricity.

There is no need to build any new structures. Just clean, add the tables and a bar area, and stock up with drinks.

Even if it does rain, people can still enjoy a drink. And if your shed has electricity, even better! You can use a fridge to keep drinks cool.
