Now that the weather has finally started acting appropriately for this time of year (for most of us, anyway), we’re looking to get our gardens ready for a summer of garden-based al fresco dining and get-togethers.
Whether you have a large lawn, a small patio or even just a balcony, a bistro set (which consists of a small table and two chairs) is a must for impromptu drinks and evening meals for two. Their size makes then especially great for small spaces, plus many fold away so they can be kept out of sight when not needed or stored in a shed throughout winter.
They come in a range of styles and materials – metal, rattan, wooden and plastic are all popular choices – and price points: you can spend hundreds if you want, but we’ve found there’s no need to spend over £200 for a decent bistro set that will do the job for many summers to come.
You could go for a plain neutral colour that will blend in with its surroundings, or why not opt for a bright hue to bring a pop of colour to your outdoor space? Whatever your style, we’ve found some bistro sets that hit a range of price points under £200, We know these will be in high demand, but all of our picks are currently still available to buy right now.
