EARLIER this year we asked Daily Echo readers to tell us their favourite pub garden in Southampton.

Readers cast their nominations before the results went to a vote. 

More than 10,000 votes were cast – each of the participants eager to have their say in their preferred locale to whittle away the hours in the sunshine with a cold refreshing beverage to hand.

Some of the nominations included the more traditional pub garden with sprawling green grass and beautiful flowers, while others were modern beer terraces.

With summer now here and a heatwave now underway, we've unearthed your favourite pub gardens so you can soak up the sunshine.
